Gardeners' Notes:

Simply elegant. I've had this daylily 5 years and each year it is more exquisite. It's grown in a 3' raised bed, s.w. exposure.

Positive anniegolden On Jun 21, 2012, anniegolden from Dover, DE wrote:

This is my favorite daylily. Fast increase, vigorous, rebloom, every bloom opens perfectly, sails through different weather conditions from year to year. This all makes it a great plant. Then the best part, - breathtakingly beautiful.

Positive OldPerfessor On May 6, 2012, OldPerfessor from Hazard, KY (Zone 6b) wrote:

One of our favorites. Pale yellow ruffled bloom w/red/pink edged petals. A true delight to behold.

Positive ebringe On Aug 12, 2009, ebringe from Holmen, WI wrote:

Have enjoyed long bloom season here in Wi. Consistent bloom color and edging regardless if hot or cold. Plant seems strong and no problem with wind. Biggest problem is remembering that this plant is a dipolid, always trying to cross it with a tet.

Died in ice storm so is too tender. Had two years just fine and then the ice storm hit with no snow before it. Will try again sometime.

Neutral FrillyLily On Jan 26, 2009, FrillyLily from springfield area, MO (Zone 5b) wrote:

blooms above the foliage nicely, and edging is present on almost all the blooms, a pale blossom, but does not have a washed out look. very pretty, my drawback though is that I have trouble with the petals breaking off in the wind. If it is windy at all, you should head out early to see this, as they will not last.

I am growing this daylily for the first time and you can see from the photo that it is magnificent! It has bloomed regularly on 1 scape - I am very pleased so far...I will have to follow up in a year or so to evaluate it fully.

Positive gdionelli On Mar 27, 2007, gdionelli from Huntington, WV (Zone 6a) wrote:

One of the longest bloom seasons of any of my daylilies. Mine actually keeps blooming on the same scapes. Also a rapid increaser. Can't be beat for garden performance and beauty.

Positive TerriFlorida On Nov 26, 2006, TerriFlorida from Plant City, FL wrote:

I have only had BEAUTIFUL EDGINGS for a year, but already it has shown me why it is so popular! It is easy to see why its hybridizer introduced it. I expect it to get even better in years to come. It is so cool that it grows well down here in Florida, as well as in the far northern states.

Positive MikenMyrtle On Aug 22, 2006, MikenMyrtle from Myrtle Beach, SC wrote:

Very pretty flowers, the edging very slight here in my Zone 8 garden. Great substance.

Positive lilystorm On Jan 2, 2005, lilystorm from San Jose, CA wrote:

A gorgeous flower that blooms profusely and then reblooms later. The amount of blush on the edges can vary, but the flower is always lovely.

This plant is quite beautiful in the early morning. The pink edging is not as pronounced in the afternoon as the photos shown here, but in the morning - it is gorgeous!
