This has exceeded my expectations. More blooms, more beautiful, and hardier than any of my other daylilies. They really make an impact. They are a little shorter than I wanted, not quite the 2 foot height in the description; I would say between one and one-and-a-half feet high after 3 years. Unfortunately, like all my daylilies, the deer love them too.

Nothing to say except well done! I don't believe I have seen a more beautiful color and flower construct in a very long time! The plant is a tad slow in growing and could afford to put on a bit more 'girth' but the flower scapes have been full size each summer' and the flowers a very pretty, soft orange with a rose-color eye ring - stunning! If you want a beautiful daylily for your garden, this one is it!Nancy Kennedy, Ontario, Canada, 2 years ago
This plant is so gorgeous, I can't stop looking. I bought three last year to plant on a slope in my garden and they all came back this year and are blooming their heads off. The colour is a soft orange and they are back-planted by Daisy May Daisies and have Wizard of Aaahs Veronica next to them. These colours combined look so striking, I wish I could show you a picture.Farah, Ontario, Canada, 2 years ago
I absolutely love my Orange Smoothie daylillies..they came packaged superbly and within a couple weeks of planting, they were blooming. I ordered gallon size plants last summer and now they are so big that I plan on dividing them...they have just been loaded with blooms which are a gorgeous orange sherbert color. I can not recommend this plant enough!Marilee Bluhm, Minnesota, United States, 4 years ago
