Plant Type: Daylilies
Gigantic 7" flowers of incredible substance are rich cream with a glowing yellow-green throat. The ruffled, shimmering diamond dusted petals open wide and flat, making the flowers appear even larger. Thick, 4-5 way branched scapes carry the fragrant blossoms in early summer and then again later in the season. This would be a beautiful perennial to use for summer weddings in the garden. Dormant tetraploid.
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).
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. 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.
