    This is one of the "rebloomers" I got last April, 2017, from Gilbert Wise & Sons. I don't have many pink daylilies and this one is so pretty with a deep rose eye and greenish throat and recurved petals. It resembles 'Elegant Candy,' which I also have, but 'Exotic Candy' grows taller. It bloomed all of May 2018.
