I tried growing this DL several times w/no success. I got a clump from Oakes DL and it finally took. Very soft, lovely pink flowers.

Seems to be very hardy in my zone. Can see Janice Brown in many daylilies like Dragon's Eye, Elegant Candy and Lavender Blue Baby. Love it having the whole stalk in bloom at once, is quite a show. When I see Janice Brown in the lineage I can bet it will be hardy in my zone.
