I just purchased this lily and agree that it looks peach instead of cream in my southwestern area of Maine. Very pretty double flower.

This is new to my garden, but the reason I purchased this particular daylilly is that it states it is hardy to -20 F. So, I have high hopes of this coming back and know that I can share it with others in colder regions.. I'm anxiously awaiting the double flowers.

Hardy in my zone though it tends to be peach in color tone.
