There is a very good reason that our database currently shows 37 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.

Bought at Lowe's on clearance, 2 pots for $3 each. I've got to say, though, that those plants were Patient Zero for a nasty rust outbreak later in the year.
