Hemerocallis 'Peggy's Pink' (Peggy's Pink Daylily) - Evergreen daylily with large pink flowers. A floriferous variety that was found in an assorted block of tetraploid hybrid daylilys by our own Sales Manager Peggy Koegler. Plant in full sun to light shade. Although tough enough to handle minimal irrigation, plants look better and bloom far more when given a regular watering. It is tolerant of most soils and temperatures down well below 0 F. The flowers are edible and tasty and contain considerable amounts of vitamins A and C, plus some protein. Added to salads they add color and flavor. The different cultivars have widely different flavors and, in general, the lighter colored flowers tend to taste better. Care should be exercised to not eat flowers of any plant that may have been sprayed with pesticides. People with plant allergies should check with their physician before eating daylilies. Hemerocallis comes from two Greek words meaning ''beauty'' and ''day,'' referring to the fact that each flower lasts only a day.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Hemerocallis 'Peggy's Pink'.
