Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Mainer On Jan 20, 2009, Mainer from Durham, ME (Zone 3a) wrote:

Blooms faithfully now , at first had a hard time getting the single bareroot to survive the winter here but got a small clump amounting to triple fan size in a trade which has survived two winters now and is just lovely.

"Catherine Woodbery" was one of my first daylilies, given to me by a very good friend, so it will always be special to me. The fact that it's a beautiful, soft pink-lavender blend flower, with a wonderful fragrance and many blooms is just a bonus. It's an oldie but a definite goodie!

Positive Igrowinpa On Jan 30, 2007, Igrowinpa from Beaver Falls, PA (Zone 6a) wrote:

Pretty pale lavender that is striking in the garden. After blooming, the foilage tends to die off but returns and stays green until frost. I will always have some growing in my daylily gardens.

Bought these bulbs from Walmart a month or so ago and they are already blooming. Very beautiful indeed!

I love this one - and it's scent is very good, which is great as it's not a yellow, which tend to hold the monopoly on fragrance I think.

Another older variety that still holds its own with the new ones. Very pretty pink with no salmon overtones. Medium height, plant where noses can find it.
