My flower looks like it's supposed to too~~darker pink with a bright yellow, very ruffled edge~I love it~I don't believe the color has anything to do with the zone you're in on this one, I'm from MN

Neutral Mainer On Jan 12, 2008, Mainer from Durham, ME (Zone 3a) wrote:

Mine was true to color on the plant label except failing to have more of the yellow edging. It does have a faint yellow edging. The edging does seem to be a problem in northern areas to get. Not hot enough long enough to lighten up to pink or to have an edging. This happens often with southern daylilies which do not survive well in zone 3. Later ones like Great White and Hollywood Lights are beginnind to show more promise.

Not sure about the other two posts but this bloomed exactly like the marker in it. The others must have been mismarked. My marker showed French Lingerie as subtle pinks and purples and yellow with ruffled edges. Multiple perfect blooms...very pretty.

I chose this daylily based on the striking colors displayed and described on its ID-tag, a soft lavender ruffled and centered in yellow, but was most disappointed to find that in the flower it looks nothing like the promised bloom...nor like songbird's.

Pretty daylily but blooms nothing like it is pictured on the plant marker when you buy it or in catalogues. There it is shown as a blue lavender with a thick green edge.
