‘Passionate Returns’ Daylily

Hemerocallis

Fragrant 4" bright clear super-rosy-red blossoms with golden-yellow throats with a touch of apple-green at the deepest point. Near-perfect form.

One of the best daylilies ever introduced by hybridizer Darrel Apps who ambitiously plants out 2500 seedlings every year then watches and waits for those worthy of introduction to appear.

Trouble-free, chokes out weeds. Flourishes under a wide range of conditions, from full sun to shade, wet to dry. Plant 12-18" apart in average soil; benefits from an annual shovel or two of compost.

Long season blooms span a 3-month run from early summer through fall! 17" tall. Z2. (1-yr field-grown bare-root 2-fan crowns)

Additional Information

Daylilies

Champion low-maintenance perennial produces a bush of narrow arched leaves topped with lily-shaped flowers from July to September. Hemerocallis means ‘beautiful day,’ referring to the fact that each flower lasts only a day, but since each scape (or stem) is covered with buds, bloom periods can be extensive and the long stems work well in bouquets. Trouble-free, chokes out weeds.
Flourishes under a wide range of conditions, from full sun to shade, wet to dry. Plant 12–18" apart in average soil; benefits from an annual shovel or two of compost.

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be potted up soon, wet the roots. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If you cannot pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors.

Pot up the rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
