    newport, RI — A great daylily,growers in the colder zones should not expect a lot of rebloom on most daylilies.I get some small amount of rebloom in zone 6b even without rebloom this daylily is worth growing.

    chester, MA — Compared to some of my other well established rebloomers, this lily's rebloom is pitiful even though it is repeated several times through the summer. One bloom on second bloom period and a shortened height and life of bloom in the third bloom period. This plant was given the best soil location in our yard and yet, on year three, it is struggling to bloom again. Fertilizing seems to make no difference. Perhaps this mild winter will help this year in 2012 but we are without the usual snow cover that encourages new spring growth as it melts. As much as I hate snow.....Pray for more snow!!

    Dexter, MO — I have six or more plants of Always Afternoon in my garden. The beautiful mauve/purple blooms just makes me, well drool, when I look at them in full bloom. They have good size blooms, lots of them and bloom often during the season here in zone 6. I hope that you will give them a try and love them as much as I do.

    Woodruff, SC — Excellent bloomer. Long initial bloom period, then a nice re-bloom. The color looks just like the photo. We like the large flowers on short scapes. Highly recommended.

    Baltimore, OH — A beautiful daylily that can be recommended to gardeners just about everywhere. Cold-hardy and a vigorous grower here. Has a reputation for growing well in most climates.

    The flower color is sometimes lighter or darker than shown in the picture but is always attractive. Holds up well on hot & steamy, sunny midwestern afternoons. The scapes are short but display the flowers well, and there are plenty of them. A clump in bloom is a treasure. Ours usually produces some rebloom scapes after the first set has finished, for an even longer blooming period. This is one I rate as a "keeper" that likely will always be in our garden.
