 Series Name: RAINBOW RHYTHM® Collection
Common Name: Daylily
Proven Winners® Perennial

This new and exciting variety stands out from the rest of the daylilies with its uniquely shaped petals. Huge, 6.5in triangular-shaped flowers are light golden yellow with a pronounced raspberry red eye.  Its bottom sepals are smooth, often twisting or curling into a “swirling” motion. This is the perfect companion to ‘Primal Scream’, matching its spider-like look. Daylilies are a perfect landscape plant and possibly the most care-free and easiest perennials to grow.

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.

Plants should be deadheaded for cosmetic purposes, but in most cases this will not extend the bloom time.
