Hi All, I would be interested in hearing what your favorite Pink was in 2014.

Seeing these bloom this year has renewed my interest in pink cultivars.

Recieved a couple fans of this one from John Kulpa this past summer and it bloomed it's little heart out.
Barbara Delisle (Kulpa, 2006)
height 28in (71cm), bloom 6.5in (16.5cm), season MLa, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, Fragrant, 12 buds, 2 branches, Rose pink polychrome with lavender pink watermark and yellow eye with cream ruffled edge above green throat. (Ed Brown × Bella Sera)

I guess a close second to Heartbeat of Heaven would be DARLA ANITA. Still love seeing this one bloom.

Pretty seedling. If I were to have a favorite pink, looking at all the photos above it would have to be Lilydaydreamer's 'Victorian Blush' now to me that is what I think of as Pink!

I've been hearing for years that Pink Lemonade Party is a true pink (for a daylily) so I finally got around to ordering it this year. Nice, encouraging picture of it Betty..... I'd say my favorite pinks for 2014 would be one I doubled up on. Our harsh winter of 2013 left me with only a few fans of Leslie Renee and I like her enough that I bought more fans. Wouldn't want to be without her. The other true pink daylily I love was fine with the winter but I got nervous about it anyway as I only had one large clump, so I divided her into two.

Debra, gorgeous seedling! Here are a few of my favorite pinks.
'Crystalline Entity' (M. Reed) ; 'Crystal Smith' (Harry -Smith FR); 'Flamingo Flambeau' (Michaels) - ADORE the color!
Thumb of 2015-01-25/floota/7ba435
'Miss Piggy' (Gossard); 'Neon Flamingo' (Gossard); 'Once Upon a Time' (Reed)

'White Eyes Pink Dragon' ( another Gossard) he does good pinks! 'Sebastian The Crab' (J. Joiner)


I'm certain there are more, but these came to mind first. A couple of years ago, I did a blog on pinks.
