A reliable performer. The edge is prominent, but not bright. But this one is very hardy here.

I have had SWEDISH GIRL for about 18 years. I first acquired it when I lived in MD and it performed well. It came with me to NY and continues to perform well. I love it.

I first saw this plant at the Tidewater Daylily Society Plant sale in 2015. It was displayed as an offscape and I and many others decided we had to have it. Luckily, Sterretts Garden on the eastern shore had it in stock and I picked it up shortly after. It looks good in my garden, 'Swedish Girl' calls people over to it. The pink perfectly outlines this near white daylily.

There is also a Tet conversion of Swedish Girl that passes on similar traits to it's offspring. Both the dip and tet version are still being used in modern day breeding. This is a plant I don't own but need to add to my garden. I have a few seedlings that would look great crossed with it. I'm glad to hear so many people are pleased with it.
