    Fairy Tale Pink is a very reliable bloomer. It even performs well in a small container. I had it in a narrow windowbox for years and that never stopped it from blooming. I moved it out of the windowbox a couple of years ago and it hasn't made the transition well. It still blooms but has lost fans and hasn't seemed as vigorous. I'm hoping that it does much better this year now that it has had a chance to settle in.

    I have always considered Fairy Tale Pink to be the perfect daylily. My favorite daylily color is pink, and this one doesn't disappoint with the color! I really love everything about it. It has bloomed very well for me in zone 5a, where I had it in partial shade, and in zone 7a, where it is in full sun. Nothing seems to bother it, and I always smile when I see it! It's perfect!

    Hemerocallis 'Fairy Tale Pink' is a wonderful daylily. Pretty pinkish color and perfect flower when it blooms. A great grower in areas throughout the U.S.
