Rolling Thunder Daylily


Like a dark storm cloud rolling across the field, this dramatic deep red daylily with a yellow halo and green throat commands a presence. If you look closely, you'll notice a wiry, cream edge halfway around the pie crusted, velvety textured petals. The 5.5", fragrant blossoms appear on thick, branched stems atop robust, vigorous plants in midsummer. This is an extended blooming, nocturnal daylily so its flowers open the day before in late afternoon and remain open for at least 16 hours. 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).
