Not impressed with this one. Died twice when bought and the third after second year blooms looks like a flesh wound to be exact. It falls apart or is shredded when it rains heavily. Third year now still looks like a flesh wound so it went Into the composter. Do not want to breed those characteristics into my seedlings. I am going for hardiness and opening easily besides pretty. I do not want to weaken them.

I did not like the color of the first bloom I got on my first year plant. It reminded me of a flesh wound. However, after seeing the subsequent blooms this flower has grown on me. It has nice bluegreen cast to the leaves. I have it in a bed with Little Witching Hour and Little Grapette.

I ordered and planted 6 different daylilies in 2006. Daring Deception, a year later, is the one with the biggest form and most blooms. The others I ordered are only half as large. The color is beautiful. I recommend it if you like pink/rose daylilies.
