Double River Wye

I thought I'd asked this before but if I did I can't find my old post so I apologize if this is a repeat performance. A few years ago I was going to buy DRW. The nursery owner asked me why I would want that one when there were so many nicer ones out there. She said DRW never did grow very well for her and it flowered for such a short time, I believed her so didn't buy it then but now I'm wondering. I've thought it might be a warmer climate daylily so I looked it up on ATP and it is hardy to -40. If there is anyone who lives in a colder zone, 5a or lower, and has this one, could you please let me know how well it does for you? BTW, I just checked her site and now she has it listed at $5/pot. Thanks. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year. Marg

I don't think I've seen any negative remarks about it on my forum hop around the internet. Many people do not want yellows but I love them. They add a bit of contrast.
I, for one, love DRW and it grows great here and if anything survives our winters, especially this one we are experiencing this year, it is a keeper in my book.
I wish I could send you a double fan to try but since your in Canada it wouldn't be feasible. :-(.

Thanks Julia. I like the soft yellow color and the form. How long does it flower for you? I was told not very long so I didn't bother to buy it. Now I wish I had. Your picture is beautiful! Marg.

According to my picture file for 2013 season, it starts blooming end of June and continued through end of July here in my garden.

Double River Wye does well in my zone 5a. It's even rebloomed the last couple of years which is rare for me. - It was planted in 2010, so has made it through a few winters.

I'm your neighbor to the south (Syracuse, NY area), but I'm still zone 5A. I planted Double River Wye two years ago. It put on a good show and even was a rebloomer for me! I bought it in a lot from the Lily Auction.
