This lovely lily is cream with a blue violet eye that fades gradually to a lighter shade before meeting the chartreuse throat. Registered at 22 inches(56 cm) with a bloom that is 5 inches(13 cm), but for us she is not that big, allowing her to comfortably hang out at the front of the border. A mid season blooming, evergreen, tetraploid with 8 buds on 1 branch.

Daylily Chick Flick

By Douglas 2011

Hey, you gotta love the name.  If you love bright baby pink then this is the one for you.  Bright pink self with a hot pink eye that almost looks like lips to me.  She has a little green throat, a white mid rib and a nicely ruffled edge.  The shape is perfectly round and the sepals are a lighter shade of pink and there is an added bonus; diamond dusting.  The flowers are almost 5 inches and this dormant, diploid stands 2 feet tall.  The bloom is midseason with rebloom and it blooms well (20 buds on 4 branches).
