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.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Hemerocallis 'Peggy's Pink'.
