Stunning color and a big, beautiful plant. Sometimes pink daylilies are not really pink (more peachy or orange) but this one is just a gorgeous rose color. This is only the first year I've had it and it's put up 5 scapes and has been blooming for 4 weeks, with many buds still on the plant.

I'm not particularly fond of pink daylilies, but this cultivar is amazingly robust and at clump strength it can't be beat. The second year in my garden it sent up 8 scapes and bloomed for 7 weeks.
