Great timing! I just found my first scapes of the year on Festive Fall today!

One of my all-time favorite daylilies. The color is more coral in my garden but judging from the pictures more orange for others.

Blooms early or early-mid for me. Each flower opens perfectly although some of the earlier ones can be a bit splotchy.

Very pod fertile so if you have a NOID you want to the check the ploidy of I'd use FF. It is also pollen fertile but FF blooms so much I typically don't use its pollen all that much.

One of the earliest to bloom, in colors that are indeed festive. A favorite in the early garden.

I like the blooms on Festive Fall, but wish it was just a little taller to sit more above the foliage. It is an early bloomer, but because of low branching and bud count, it only blooms about 2 weeks during the first part of June. I've not seen rust on it.

In this picture, Festive Fall is in front with Persian Market in back.

Scapes are usually top-branched.
