 Common Name: Daylily

This is not your average yellow daylily—in fact there’s nothing average about it!  This daylily is a blooming machine that amps up into high gear at the end of summer, just when many other perennials are finishing for the season. 

Tall, supremely well-branched scapes (up to 8 branches per stem!) carry a myriad of fragrant, 4", golden yellow flowers with nicely overlapping petals.  An extraordinary bud count of 50 or more per scape is not uncommon for this daylily. 

The brilliant gold flowers are a great color to blend with other late blooming perennials such as orange and red Heleniums.  And unlike some older daylilies, this one has nice foliage all season long so when it blooms in late summer the leaves still look great.

Dormant diploid.

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).

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

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.

Daylilies can be divided every 3-4 years by digging up the entire clump and dividing it into smaller pieces with a minimum of 3 fans each. This can be done in either spring or fall. Plants can be deadheaded for cosmetic purposes, but in most cases this will not extend the bloom time.
