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.

Does okay here, but not a stellar performer. Slightly shorter than registered height. One of the earliest to bloom, in colors that are indeed festive. Would prefer a slightly larger flower.
