Gardeners' Notes:

Some daylilies performance, and color, can vary from region to region and "Elizabeth Salter" is definitely one such plant. I have no problem with stems falling over like a previous reviewer did, but if you review the pictures, you'll notice that it blooms pink for some growers and decidedly peach/apricot for others. It blooms peach/apricot for me, a rich peach sherbet color. possibly because of Michigan's climate but that shade is one of my favorite garden colors so I have no complaints about it at all and have other daylilies for the color pink or rose. It's a terrific grower and has nothing but good garden habits. I wish it were a little taller but it's still one of my favorites.

My only problem with this daylily is that the flower scapes tend to fall over/bend easily in wind or storms. Otherwise it is a lovely plant, very prolific and easy to grow. More of a salmon-pink than a clear pink.
