    Completely Lovely!

    One of favorite daylilies with a beautiful peachy-pink color, Fairy Tale Pink can take both afternoon shade and 14-hour sun and color doesn’t fade. In middle TN it has a good blooming season for me and blends well with other daylily colors.

    Lovely and elegant

    I go for rich, dark, and bright shades, but I felt I needed something lighter to balance the colors out, and Fairy Tale Pink was it. I planted this one in October 2016 (coastal southern New England, zone 7a), and the first year, it bloomed for a whole month, starting 13 July 2017 through mid-August (daylily nerd alert: I keep track!). This year, it started blooming on 10 July, and looks like it will continue for a couple weeks yet. While it doesn’t put out as many blooms as some of my more prolific varieties (like Mexican Maiden), it blooms steadily every 1-2 days with large, fluffy pale-peachy blossoms that are just wonderful.

    Great starter daylily was easy to grow and not expensive.

    Utterly impressed

    What is your hardiness zone? Zone 6

    In my Zone 6a/ W. PA garden, I’m always wowed when an Oakes daylily blooms its first season and this is exactly what she is doing in the most pleasing way. Planted her last fall, and now mid July she is robust for her first year and full of big healthy blooms. She is very much like her picture, but somehow, I didn’t think the blooms would be so big for the first year, but they are!!!I It is planted in front of a tall Ruffled Apricot ( one of my other very favorites ) and I think the colors really offset each other. She really softens the boldness of the RA and then I have a short orange cosmos planted in front of it all to tie it together. Really beautiful combo. I couldn’t be more pleased and look forward to the coming years. Extemely impressed.

    I received this as a bonus. Planted in september 2014. Many beautiful large blooms this summer for it’s first growing season. Beautiful peachy pink daylily. I have clay soil in Denver, colorado.

    this is, of course, a classic daylily, with beautifully-formed wide, ridged, and ruffled petals. i see it as a light peach, with an absolutely gorgeous (granny smith) apple-green throat. a must-have! p.s.- if you want a true pink, i recommend ‘pink attraction’.

    This smaller bloomed is a piece of art. The color is just soooo pretty in pink and highlights any plant that grows next to it no matter what color the other plant is.

    What it may lack in stunning foliage, Fairy Tale Pink more than makes up for in complex irresistability. No one simply walks by it. Everyone stops and remarks on its colors, ruffled petals and understated grace. Its place in my yard is in diffused sun and light shade and does quite well. I will add more of this lovely daylily!

    A very interesting flower with what I would describe as a chartreuse throat (hard to find), and very pretty banding. Not a profuse bloomer for me. I prefer Barbara Mitchell for flower beauty alone, and Chorus Line for more profuse blooms, but this one is unique.

    Gorgeous, high quality flower and strong preferential rebloom (new stalks emerge as old are finishing), though no secondary rebloom. But, unfortunately, the foliage is truly awful, and even with adequate moisture and fertitlity it degrades to the point where it needs to be groomed away so as not to be an eyesore, sometimes before the flowering is even over. It breeds well though, both pod and pollen, so cross it with parents that have better foliage.

    I planted several daylilies this summer and this was one of my first. It is such a beautiful shade of pink and such a nice size. Very pleased with this one!

    Grown in full sun this beauty rewards you with huge pink ruffled blooms. It reminds me a lot of Barbara Mitchell and that’s about as high a compliment I can give.

    This daylily was one of the first I had ever bought. When the sun shines on the petals, it looks like it is sprinkled with suger. The scapes are heafty and the flowers substantial and can cope with its windy location. I’ve found that the color can become washed out if not given full sun.It continues to be one of my favorites and I look forward to its return every year.

    This is the most beautiful flower I have. It bloomed a long time with multiple blooms in the first season I planted it.

    A very pretty pale pink. It is more pink in an area of my yard that gets some shade during the day. However, I have another plant in a full sun location (8+ hrs) and it has a ton of blooms and is still very pretty.
