Gardeners' Notes:

I absolutely love 'Lilting Belle', she is one of my very favorite pink spider variants as her year of into 1983 is an important one for me. Her petals can get quite long so although she is classified as a spider variant i would say in some instances she can achieve being a true spider in petal length. She reminds me much of the newer 'Spirit of Sapelo' and also 'Skyhooks' daylily by Hanson[1990], which is exactly the same color and blooming characteristics but is a ufo with shorter petals..just a lovely, classy, and classic daylily..peace..mike
