We have been busy building stock of this incredible daylily for nearly a decade because we KNOW it’s going to be a big hit when we introduce it! We’ve watched it perform in our gardens year after year and it has consistently been one of the very most outstanding red daylilies.
Foodies delight! ‘Sun Dried Tomatoes’ is the perfect name to accurately describe the rich red tones of this large flowered 6" daylily with a blended golden green throat. You’ll be pleased how it keeps its red color all day in the sun. Its recurved petals are edged in perfect pie crust ruffles and covered with a thick coating of glimmering diamond dusting.
A must-have for your daylily collection!
This is considered a premium daylily, which means that it has been selected as highly performing plant with exceptional bloom performance, substantive, vibrantly colored flowers, complete winter hardiness in northern zones, and a vigorous habit.
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.
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.
Daylilies were eaten as food in China and Japan.
