    London, OH — Prester John was a free plant with a daylily order & would not have been one I'd have ordered, BUT! It's not only sturdy & pretty, it's also gifting me with Rebloom this year! The first of what looks like seven buds is open today, September 1st, 2011!

    New Tazewell, TN — I received this plant for free at the festival last year. I was a little disappointed when I got it, but am thrilled now! This lilly produces many blooms and they are simply delightful. The yellow of my plant is much more bold than the picture. Very nice!

    WAUWATOSA, WI — This daylily was sent to me as a bonus plant and has never failed me. The blooms are vivid yellow-orange and the color holds up well in the hot afternoon sun. I am curruently waiting for 2 more blooms to open. All daylilies are beautiful, but the ones with double blooms are expecially beautiful. This daylily will always have a place my garden.
