The most beautiful pink daylily ive ever seen. Too have an historic daylily on such tall scapes for a pink, at over 36 inches tall, and such a beautiful color it even puts todays pink cultivars to shame, is absolutely amazing! this is a must have for us this coming year! :-)

Pink Damask is a very pretty deep pinkish/coral flower. Very easy to grow here in RI. Foliage looks great, it increases well, and reblooms! I do always remove spent flowers&scapes. I actually bought this at the local vocational high school for $5!(gotta support the local schools;-) Not a "wow" daylily, but an excellent choice for only $5! I'm very pleased with it!
