I have those, but mine are orange and yellowish with no hint of pink! Maybe it is the lighting in your picture.

Thank you for the offer!

I have heard candy lilies come in other colors , they just are not hardy in my zone .
I think they would be in yours.

I will give a few a try but I am zone 5 and have heard they are not hardy here.

By the way , how do you get to be a zone 6 and are in Michigan?(zone envy)
Where abouts? I lived in Michigan 18 years east side, and still vacation on the lake Michigan shore most summers.

I'm east of Detroit, Clinton Township. The zone changed two years ago. I definitely notice a difference from when I lived west of Ann Arbor. Living closer to a big lake makes a difference....and not the lake effect kind from the west side!!

I lived in Belleville on 94 between Detroit and Ann Arbor for 7 years so I know your area .
Lived in a condo so no gardening , just house plants.
I know you get more snow I kinda miss that , We use to sled a lot.
