This is my favorite daylily. Prolific flowerer - from early summer into fall. In only 3 years, has doubled in size.

Lovely, large, peachy-pink flowers, with light yellow braiding on inner petals. Pale yellow deepening to bright yellow throat. Outstanding garden performer, easy to grow and loaded with blossoms. Blooms mid-summer into fall.
