Clouds of Kisses is new to me as of last summer. I bought this plant at my favourite local daylily nursery. I first saw it about four years ago, and fell in love with the delicate colours. I asked about it, but was told it was being propogated and wasn't ready for sale. I patiently waited and last year went to get it when it first appeared for sale in their catalogue. I was told that they had sold out! Thankfully, the owner overheard this exchange, and since I have bought so many plants from her, she went back to the field and got me a lovely clump. It bloomed for me last year in my garden, but since it is new, I cannot give a report for its performance in my garden. However, I can say that it has been hardy in our area since the local nursery I bought it from grows all cultivars for several years to check for hardiness and performance in our climate. I am anxious to see it in my own garden this year.

This one is a keeper. Clear soft Pink eye - looks delicate but it is not fragile at all.
Medium-fast growth at registered specs (maybe slightly shorter than 26" tall for me).
I have not tried to hybridize with it so no fertility report.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!
