    This was my first year growing Webster's Pink Wonder, and I was not disappointed. I love this daylily's color and form. It steals the show in the section of the border where I placed it. I grow it in front of Thalictrum rochebruneanum. The dainty sprays of the 'Lavender Mist Meadow Rue' provide an interesting backdrop for the big floppy blooms of Webster's Pink Wonder. The strong scapes stayed erect even in severe storms.

    I LOVE how huge the blooms are on this flower. I'm not a huge fan of pink daylilies, but I imagine I will always have this one in my garden. There is something about having those giant blooms come up and meet you at your level and being able to just hold them in your hands.

    Another member (FrillyLilly) commented on something that I've also noticed: The blooms are so big that they are fragile. It's a shame, but when it gets moderately (or more) windy, the petals rip right off the plant, leaving it looking really silly at times. It's a trade-off, I suppose, to having such a big, beautiful bloom.
