 Common Name: Daylily

Try this lovely lady to add a splash of feminine color to your summer garden. 6”, lavender flowers are strongly fragrant, with a frilly, ruffled yellow picotee edge and a prominent creamy yellow throat. The lighter color midribs accentuate the star-shaped flowers. According to daylily expert Arthur Kroll, this variety is very similar to Silver Stout Winner ‘Ida’s Magic’, but is a much stronger grower. This daylily has strong, well-branched scapes with lots of buds for an explosion of boom in midsummer.

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.

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.
