Plant Type: Daylilies
This is a perfect daylily to plant in large groups to create a beautiful swathe of red color in the landscape. It has some of the best foliage of any red daylily variety, creating big, strong, vigorous plants with well branched and heavily budded scapes. The flowers are clear fire engine red with a yellow throat and pie crust ruffled tepals. The color is very sunfast for a red daylily. Rebloomer! This is considered a premium daylily, which means that it has been selected as a 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 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.
