Petticoat Frills has been in a lot of shade in my garden for the first 6 years after planting it in 2009, so it did not multiply much. Then I moved it to the south side of the house and it has done better, but it still gets a little shade which I think helps bring out the pink in this beauty. In 8 years, it still has probably only got 8 fans.

One of the traits that I have come to appreciate in a daylily is a sturdy scape. Petticoat Frills definitely has that. Even when it was in a lot of shade, the 32 inch scapes leaned a little to get to the light, but never layed over. And the 3-way branching is well-spaced. I probably got 15-18 buds per scape, which I think is pretty good for being in a lot of shade.

June 2011

I've never seen rust on Petticoat Frills, so feel that it is pretty rust resistant.

The blooms open well, although they do fade as the day goes on making it look more like a dull coral than a pretty rose color. Both of these pics were taken after I moved it to the south side of the house. It got mostly sun, but was between two shrubs and got some shade.

This was taken June 22, 2015 after it was moved and Petticoat Frills is the single bloom in the foreground. It is stuck between a boxwood and the large summersweet shrub behind it. It only blooms for about 2 weeks for me, between mid- to late June. But would probably do better without the competition.
