Background history:

'Pink Flamingo' is a dormant diploid introduced in 1948 by Ernest Plouf. On a side note, The L. Ernest Plouf Consistently Fragrant Hemerocallis Award was given out annually but was discontinued in 2003.

This cultivar is a mid-season bloomer that is orange red light polychrome. There are no photos in the Plant Database or the AHS database. If you have a photo of this cultivar's bloom, please share it here on this thread.

This plant can be found in the ATP Plant Database at:
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Pink Flamingo') .

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.

Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Pink Flamingo')

I am wondering if someone meant to request Jamie Gossard's Neon Flamingo rather than this fairly obscure plant that isn't widely grown? Neon Flamingo is a bright pink in color.
