This is really a beautiful bitone cultivar. I got "Antique Rose" in the fall of 2006, as a bare root double fan division at a local Daylily Society sale, and it bloomed very well for me in the early summer of 2007. Sometimes the pink was more coral - it varied in the individual blooms, but it was still a lovely specimen. Definitely a keeper!
