Hemerocallis 'Fairy Tale Pink'
For someone who doesn't like pink flowers in the garden I sure do have a lot of them. I bought this 'Fairy Tale Pink' Daylily at a Home Depot garden center last year after it was discounted. It was on a rolling cart among other plants that were discounted because they were damaged or looked beat up. Two ladies were looking at it but put it down because they thought it was dead.
Since it was the end of summer it looked really bad and the two ladies put it down and instead picked up some annuals. Knowing that it wasn't dead and just going dormant for the winter I bought it for three dollars and planted it when I got home.
It has been performing great in my garden and the large, ruffled, pink blooms with the yellow throat really adds color to the entrance of my garden. Watching this plant bloom I can see why it is an AHS Stout Silver Medal Winner.
