    Henderson, TX — Received my plants at the end of April and they are already blooming. Early in the morning the lilies are tri-colored much like the picture and then as the hot Texas sun shines on them they turn to the darker purple by afternoon. I'm amazed at at how many blooms they are producing so soon after planting.

    Galesburg, IL — July 20, 2011 This is a gorgeous flower! This is the first year to bloom and I love the unusual coloring. It does look like the picture, but this summer has been very hot and humid in our area. The rating of 8 is because in the hot, humid, full sun days, it makes the coloring turn dark purple with a darker purple center and not the wine color. Looks just like any purple lily. I did have 1 bloom that was just like the picture and Yes, it was a 10. Hopefully next year will not be as hot and humid, so I can really enjoy the beauty of this day lily.

    Lake Hopatcong, NJ — This is a truly gorgeous daylily. The colors are so unusual -- very rich, and each individual flower is large! The thing that impresses me the most though, is that three or four large flowers will be open on each scape at a time -- and each plant has several scapes going at a time. The effect is a mass of beautiful smokey lavender/purple color with pops of yellow. We grow many daylily varieties in our garden and virtually no others grab your attention like Trahlyta!

    Goodlettsville, TN — Second year in our garden and 'Why did I wait so long?'. Such a gorgeous daylily and so prolific. We love this beauty.

    Galva, IL — The petals are like pearlized steel. "Stunning" is so true. Very different and worth the price as it's in a league all it's own. Looks lovely picked and laying on a table for continual up close looks all day.

    raleigh, NC — I've had this in my garden for years, and this photo is more reddish-purple than the smoky-blue-gray edges that it actually has. Trahlyta is one of the most beautiful and unusual in my garden, and so much of a favorite it has front row placement so the colors can't be missed. Outstanding.

    Bardstown, KY — This is another favorite of mine. The thing I like about it is that it is not one of your average daylilies. The bloom is quite different, and adds a contrast to your daylily bed.

    Also, it is quite prolific.

    Westover, MD — 'Trahlyta' has been a consistently reliable bloomer for me. The soft purple-grey colour mixes well with other flowers (especially lavender and artemisia) and it also divides like mad. A must for those who love purple!
