    • We bought the plant with flowers; we knew exactly what to expect. Everytime it blooms I am more amazed by each single flower. It truly is beautiful and I love it!

    • This cultivar is amazing. Hybridized by one of the top daylily breeders in the US (Emmerich) the plant is very robust with huge scapes. (flower stalks) With regards to disappointment in the color that other reviewers mentioned there is great variability in most daylily cultivars’ colors. Growing conditions greatly affect the bloom colors and you can be sure the original growers provided the best of care resulting in such beautiful colors. Obviously people are disappointed when their plant doesn’t look like the picture as I too have been disappointed in my other daylily cultivars. Daylilies are one of a very few plants that show this range of colors. Daylilies are extremely hardy plants that can survive most any situation but they thrive with the best of care. In this manner they are like roses but they won’t die like a rose would. A great resource is the American Garden Association at garden.org. Google the daylily name, like ‘daylily Storm Shelter’ and one of the top hits will direct you to that cultivar’s information page. On that page there will be pictures sometimes 10 or more. There you will see the color variations that other growers have. My suggestion is pamper them with great quality soil and fertilizer and adjust the pH of your soil. You should see improvements in the colors.

    • Sérieusement, je suis très déçue de la couleur des fleurs. Sur l'étiquette, la couleur est mauve mais lors de la floraison, la fleur était rose, ce qui vraiment pas ce que je désirait de cette plante. Si vous voulez acheter cette plante, prenez en considération que les fleurs sont roses et non mauves. Seriously, I am very disappointed with the color of the flowers. On the label the color is purple but when flowering the flower was pink which really not what I wanted from this plant. If you want to buy this plant, take in consideration that the flowers are pink and not purple.

    • I was so excited to grow this daylily based on the coloring of the tag image, it looked like a beautiful purple and plum. I was very surprised when the first bloom opened and it was a roses pink and deep magenta. Wish the tag image had been more accurate as it really doesn’t fit with the coloring of my other plants around it.

    • These are beautiful. I get lots of compliments on their unique coloring even in just their first year. Soil ph likely has something to do with coloring. Mine do look like the image but just a bit more raspberry than plum for that key layer of color. Blooms fade quicker than my other variety but they keep going so it’s no big deal. Try them out! I enjoy them very much!

    • Nice healthy plants, but the color of the flower is not as shown on the tag. It is not the beautiful dark purple.
