Very beautiful daylily! The foliage of my Raspberry Pixies are nearly 30" high, and the stems rise nearly 8"-12" above the foliage! Love these!

My plant was bought from a reputable grower, and looks the same as the others pictured in the database, but is much taller (26") and very weedy in appearance. It grows very slowly and I have never divided it, which is good because I wouldn't want any more of it.

I grow this lily in my zone. It is in a protected spot and shows wonderfully with companions that also have small blooms.
