Description:

Oh YESSSS!!! There's NO doubt that this gal is a "PERFORMER"!!! There's absolutely no way I could put anything but a clump shot as the header here, as it's GARDEN PERFORMANCE that I (at least) truly seek in daylilies!!! Look at the way this plant develops (Spring clump photo)... you can clearly see how it is nearly double to triple the stature of the hundreds of other seedlings around it in the field, it's truly AMAZING! Even in the early season shot, you can clearly see how the massive dormant foliage (deep green, and nearly 2.25" wide of leaf) is just phenomenal. More so, realize that the plant tag in front of it is standing at 21"... the leaves don't even "hip" until they get to at least that height! Indeed, fans are nearly the size of my ankle. Now THAT'S a "SPECIMEN PLANT" if I've ever seen one!  In the single fan photo, you can also see how fast rebloom occurs on this hottie... bloom, rebloom, and second rebloom all at ONCE!  LOVE to see that kind of amazing performance in my garden... how 'bout YOU?!  ;-)

Well... of course, there's a flower too! Totally rigid and fluted, these bright and cheerful yellow-based flowers are not only big and beefy... but number well into the hundreds, even on a relatively juvenile clump. It was plants like this, that got me to thinking... "maybe there's someone else out there too, that cares about plant performance". An "enlightened assumption"??? I SURE HOPE SO! ;-)
