General description

This is by far the most popular Daylily selection of all time, because it performs so well in all zones, flowering for months on end. Forms a dense clump of grassy green foliage, with upright stems of fragrant, golden-yellow trumpet flowers. Early, repeat bloomer. Compact habit. Excellent for massing, edging, borders or in mixed containers and tubs. Plants do not usually require dividing for several years, but are easily split apart in fall or early spring. Spent flower stems can be trimmed back after flowers are finished. Remove old foliage in late fall. Award winning.
