I have those, but mine are orange and yellowish with no hint of pink! Maybe it is the lighting in your picture.

Thank you for the offer!

Could be the lighting Shrug! .

I have heard candy lilies come in other colors , they just are not hardy in my zone .
I think they would be in yours.

I will give a few a try but I am zone 5 and have heard they are not hardy here.

By the way , how do you get to be a zone 6 and are in Michigan?(zone envy)
Where abouts? I lived in Michigan 18 years east side, and still vacation on the lake Michigan shore most summers.

I'm east of Detroit, Clinton Township. The zone changed two years ago. I definitely notice a difference from when I lived west of Ann Arbor. Living closer to a big lake makes a difference....and not the lake effect kind from the west side!!

I lived in Belleville on 94 between Detroit and Ann Arbor for 7 years so I know your area .
Lived in a condo so no gardening , just house plants.
I know you get more snow I kinda miss that , We use to sled a lot.
