    There is a very good reason that our database currently shows 160 members owning this cultivar: It's gorgeous. It is very hard to pass by a decent clump of blooming 'Strawberry Candy' without stopping to admire. Top notch performer. I recommend this one regularly to landscaping customers that are just getting started with daylilies.
