| ||Series Name: HAPPY EVER APPSTER® Daylily|
Common Name: Daylily
One of only a handful of truly everblooming daylilies, this little charmer blooms non-stop for about 3 ½ months straight beginning in mid-June in zone 7 or early July in zone 5.
Each 4", soft peachy yellow blossom with a large, rose pink eye, lemon throat, and romantically ruffled petals is of perfect form. You’ll be impressed with how quickly this daylily bulks up and unlike most daylilies that produce a single flower scape per fan, this one often produces several scapes per fan, making it extremely floriferous in the landscape.
Its short stature and continuous flower show makes this the perfect daylily for growing at the front of the border and in containers.
Dormant diploid. Extended bloom: each flower remains open for at least 16hrs.
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 were eaten as food in China and Japan.
