This daylily does show rust resistances. It also blooms constantly through the summer.

Hemerocallis 'Barbara Mitchell' is an outstanding daylily. Gorgeous pink and with perfect blooms every time, it's a popular daylily. Great grower and reliable.

I've had many amazing blooms from Barbara Mitchell. It makes a very beautiful clump, and is covered with blooms all season. It has increased very quickly for me, in both my zone 5a garden, and in my zone 7a garden. It is a bit taller in the 7a garden, but not too short in the colder zone. It has been a perfect plant, and I have been very happy with it.

If you love pastel pink daylilies, this would be a great addition to your garden!
