This elegant and refined daylily forms a very large mature clump topped with gorgeous, fragrant flowers in midsummer and again later in the season.
Very large 6” blossoms are a clear, silky textured, diamond dusted, rose pink with a small citron yellow watermark and green throat. The broad, ruffled petals of good substance open wide and flat, making the flowers appear even larger.
This variety is an extended bloomer, so the flowers remain open for at least 16 hours each. Four to five way branched scapes carry about 30 buds apiece, an impressive number for any daylily.
‘Jersey Girl’ has excellent foliage that looks great all season long. A beautiful, dependable daylily.
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.
All varieties can be divided every 3-4 years by digging up the entire clump and dividing it into smaller pieces with a minimum of 3 eyes each. This can be done in either spring or fall. 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.
