Gardeners' Notes:

I planted this 2 years ago, and still have yet to see it bloom..I had almost forgot that I had it in the garden until I came across it in my flower journal. I investigated, found the plant, and still no bloom...

Neutral Mainer On Jan 25, 2009, Mainer from Durham, ME (Zone 3a) wrote:

I placed this plant in the most direct sun I could find that is in my wooden raised maltese cross flower bed and it survives beautifully in the colder flower bed and even produces an edge on the really warm days. Otherwise it produces pink flowers with no edge showing. Seems to multiply at a good rate. Strawberry Candy in my opinion is still the best pink edged daylily for my zone.

I was disappointed in the bloom on this one. Doesn't look at all like photos you see with the red edge ot it. That was one of the reasons I purchased it. I have since found out that it needs a lot of hot sun to produce the edge, which we do not get in Michigan.
