Plant Type: Daylilies
Strongly fragrant, huge 6-7 1/2" blossoms which appear first in midsummer and then again later in the summer. The shimmering silvery pink, lightly ruffled, sculpted flowers are of excellent substance, opening wide and flat to show off the radiant yellow-green throat. Each flower remains open for at least 16 hours. The very thick, top branched scapes hold up well in summer thunderstorms. Simply lovely! Dormant tetraploid. 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 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.
