Cute little flower, I really like the look of the blooms. It seems to have
It's good years for bloom count, and off years. More good than bad, but it did not bloom at all last year. Hoping this year is better.

I love this little bloomer! It has its quirks though. If it doesn't get enough fertilizer and water it turns into a red/orange bitone that I don't find very attractive.

I had to move it and it took longer than I expected (2 years) for it to recover and bloom.

I also have not been able to set a pod on it. It rarely produces pollen and it seems to be sterile anyway.

Regardless, it is my favorite red daylily and I plan to keep it forever.
