Plant Type: Daylilies

5", diamond-dusted, fully double blossoms are soft peachy-pink with a yellow halo and green throat. Petals have perfect pie crust edges; sepals are smooth. Renowned for its incredible sweet fragrance. Blooms in early to midsummer. Extended bloom–flowers last at least 16 hrs. each. Recommended for everyone–grows well everywhere except in the deep south. Diploid. This is considered a "Designer" 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.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

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). 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. All varieties can be divided every 3-4 years by digging up the entire clump and dividing it into smaller pieces with a minimum of 3 eyes each. This can be done in either spring or fall. Plants should be deadheaded for cosmetic purposes, but in most cases this will not extend the bloom time.
