I got a free gift Daylily with an order from Great Garden Plants. This one was “Strawberry Candy.” It was planted on May 23, 2008 in Gnome in front of the back yard fence under the Honeysuckle. It was just a piece of root when I received it, but it quickly started growing leaves.

Strawberry Candy is a top performing daylily in the perennial garden. Superb 4 1/2" strawberry pink flowers with a rose red eyezone and edge and golden green throat. Ruffling adds to the appeal on this sun perennial. This delightful daylily reaches 26 inches tall, forms lots of buds then flowers heavily for a show stopping performance in the flower garden.
