Plant Type: Daylilies

The broad, rounded flower is a sunny golden yellow complete self. All parts of the flower are the same color. Edged in unusually fringed, frilly ruffles. The petals open flat, making the flowers look even larger than they are. They remain in this perfect condition all day even though they are open for at least 16 hours apiece. Strong, well-branched, heavily budded scapes carry the large 5.5-6″ blossoms in midseason. Sometimes it reblooms in late summer, though it is not officially registered as a rebloomer. Outstanding! Dormant tetraploid.

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.
