| ||Series Name: RAINBOW RHYTHM®|
Common Name: Daylily
Similar to the highly regarded daylily ‘Bela Lugosi’, this variety offers a shorter height, fragrant blossoms, and more prominent veining in the oval shaped petals.
Large 6”, shimmering dark purple, very sunfast flowers with a chartreuse throat and pie crust ruffled petals are produced midseason. A high bud count on well-branched scapes ensures many weeks of bloom.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).

Daylilies are some of the easiest perennials to grow and are a good choice for any gardener, from the beginner to the professional. These are tough, adaptable plants that will grow in any soil, from normal to slightly wet to dry. Older varieties are able to bloom if planted in partial shade, but most of the newer introductions need full sun for best performance. Likewise, older varieties tend to spread more rapidly than the newer hybrids.
Plants should be deadheaded for cosmetic purposes, but in most cases this will not extend the bloom time.
Daylilies were eaten as food in China and Japan.
