This is a very pretty daylily. However, for me, it has never opened very well. It has been growing in the partial shade of an evergreen tree. This fall we trimmed a lot of the bottom branches from the tree. I hope next year, having more sun, Pink Super Spider will open better.

Pink Super Spider has been a good grower for me. The color is so clean and huge blooms are gorgeous. Have had this in the garden for at least 5 years. Consider a keeper.

Pink Super Spider is a good grower here in Zone 5 southern NH. Increases fairly rapidly; we divide every 3rd year. Blooms are huge which accounts for the scapes falling down during wind / rain storms. It's very hardy here in Zone 5 (we've had some pretty cold winters of late).

splotchy, didn't open correctly, always had thrip like a magnet, even though the others around it did not. Texture seemed frumpy. Flat out ugly for me, and after 4 years or so I threw it away. It was in no way super.

I had "Pink Super Spider" for several years, and it never did anything .......... finally dwindled to one fan and was discarded. I assume it needs a warmer climate.

I acquired 3 fans of Super Pink Spider in September 2015. It was transplanted into a new raised bed in October 2015. It has not bloomed for me yet, even a year later (2016). No stats this year. So hopefully next year I'll see some blooms!

It currently has 4 fans, so it increased by 1 in a year. I did notice thrip damage on the very tips of the leaves, but not the entire leaf. No rust. It makes a nice, thin, compact clump. Leaves are thin and short. It is planted in an area of the raised bed that may be getting too much shade during parts of the day. Will see how it does next year (2017).
