Not a fast multiplier and modestly budded, but the flowers are large and grand. Scapes closer to 30" here.

Beautiful DL. I never read or hear the word "Corinthian" without hearing Ricardo Montalban saying,
"rich Corinthian leather." Sorry to digress here.

Corinthian Pink is a lovely and hardy daylily in zone 6b. It has good substance and stands up to the rain or sun. Does not multiply fast but is very consistent and blooms are large.

CORINTHIAN PINK is a nice large flower with good substance. It is not a fast increaser. Survives zone 5 without any mulch.
