Upon visiting the nursery where I purchased "Frank Gladney," I viewed literally hundreds of daylilies in bloom in numerous beds. A group of pots of Frank Gladney was in bloom in the sale area. This flower was one of three that REALLY stood out to me (Mary's Gold and Point of View being the others).

Frank Gladney's color has been described as tropical--it's a rich pink with coralish overtones, unique from anything else I've seen. The flowers have a sort of crepe paperish texture.

I'm looking very forward to seeing how this flower performs in my home garden.
