Back in the days before digital photography, I couldn't walk past Crimson Shadows without taking half a roll and having to pull myself away (these days I take all the pictures I want). Blooms are a gorgeous deep crimson red that even my best pictures can't do justice.

    Indianapolis, IN — MUST have - it's such a strong performer at the end of the season. Lots and lots of
    beautiful flowers! I have mine shaded and it still blooms like crazy.

    Boise, ID — Beautiful deep dark-red in part shade location. My plant is one year old and the blooms are held on short stems and does not rise above foliage. Nice daylily.

    bristol, TN — What a show-topper, just when you'er getting used to seeing daylilies blooming everywhere! I can't stop taking pictures of mine! The catalog doesn't do it full justice - it is so much richer in color plus soft and velvety to the touch. Only one word of advice - grab your camera and run out to it if you hear thunder! This flower hates rain and bleaches out when it gets wet.

    Goodlettsville, TN — It is now the middle of July in our zone 6.5 garden and, while most of our daylilies have already had their time in the spotlight, Crimson Shadows is now in full, glorious bloom, putting on a most welcome show. Our Crimson Shadows has a rich, deep, velvety color that is darker than the picture, and more beautiful. I find myself exclaiming 'Wow!' each time I look over at it. Thanks, Oakes, for such a special daylily.

    Woodruff, SC — A beautiful shade of red. Lots of large flowers. The plant makes nice clumps. My only complaint is that it does not re-bloom. But overall, a terrific daylily.

    Galva, IL — The velvet on this lily makes you stop to touch each time, like passing a beautiful pet. Mine is also darker and shimmers, almost a Victorian red. Looks especially good with whites or yellows because it is short and dark, it needs the contrast to showcase.

    Bloomington, MN — Darker in my garden - a true crimson - not at all rosy as in the picture. First bloom in year 3 - had a bad compost year followed by a "cat invasion" two winters ago. Its really lovely, but I need to move it away from the lavendars and pinks. I'll be ordering more.

    SCHRIEVER, LA — I received this daylily as a gift for attending the Daylily Festival last year (2006). What a pleasant surprise! I plan on buying more of these beauties this fall.
