This splendid pink daylily will quickly become one of your favorites for its gorgeous, bountiful blossoms.
Fragrant, light pink flowers with a hint of peach and a deep green throat edged in gold measure a full 6-7 inches across and since they open flat, they appear even larger. The broad, rounded, sculpted petals are heavily diamond dusted, glittering in the summer sun. They are of very thick substance and retain their color very well. Soft ruffles add to its appeal.
‘Patrician Splendor’ blooms in midsummer and then again later in the season on thick, 4-5 way branched scapes carrying 30-35 buds apiece. It is an extended bloomer, meaning each flower remains open for at least 16 hours.
You’re going to love this splendorous beauty!
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.
