The color (soft pink, rosy eye, slight gilded edge) is alluring. But as I recall, it was a slow morning opener and could curl in the afternoon.

In another thread I have talked about this daylily and the fact that it is one of mine that has the most open scapes at one time. It is a very fast increaser and I have had to give it a special place of its own, otherwise it would crowd out my other daylilies. Mantis is correct in saying that it sometimes takes awhile to open if mornings are cold. It is not pod fertile. Otherwise stats are pretty accurate on this one.
