Go Back Blackthorne

Hemerocallis 'Blackthorne'

Plant Type: Daylilies

Very light creamy yellow blossoms with a hint of peach display a prominent wine purple eye and matching picotee edge half way up the attractively ruffled petals. The broad, rounded, recurved petals, glowing chartreuse throat, and diamond dusting make this flower even more beautiful. Branched stems carry the 4.5-5" blossoms first in midsummer and then again shortly after the first round of bloom (though it is not officially registered as a rebloomer). Semi-evergreen tetraploid.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:


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).
