Additional Information


Low-maintenance perennials which produce a clump of narrow arched leaves topped with a scape of lily-shaped flowers from July to September.

The genus name Hemerocallis means beautiful day, referring to each flower lasting only a day; but since each flower scape has many buds, bloom periods can be extensive. To aid rebloomers, deadhead the scapes after flowers fade, before they form seed capsules. Rebloom generally less intensive than the initial bloom.

A single daylily flower has three petals and three sepals, all six together called tepals, each with a midrib in the same or a contrasting color. A “self” has all tepals and ribs the same color, though the throat may be the same or a different color.

Plant 12–18" apart in average soil; benefits from a shovel or two of compost. Very hardy, flourishes under a wide range of conditions, from full sun to shade, wet to dry. Once well established, divide every 4-5 years.
