Daylilies are classic, extremely popular garden plants. They feature long, arching, strappy leaves and long stems of generally 6-petaled flowers, though double flowers are popular as well. Each flower lasts only one day, hence the plant’s common name. Daylilies come in a wide range of colors, from cream and cheery yellow to peach, orange, fiery red, deep burgundy, pink, and purple. Some have contrasting throats and "eye-zones." Daylilies are ideal for a mixed herbaceous perennial border.
This cultivar has thin-petaled, yellow flowers with faint orange eye-zones and grows to 4 to 6 feet tall. It has an extended diurnal blooming habit; its blooms remain open from the early morning until the evening, for at least 16 hours. Each flower lasts for only one day.
Sow seed in containers in spring or autumn. Divide in spring or autumn.
Daylilies are strong plants and relatively pest and disease resistant. Some minor damage from sucking insects like aphids and thrips. Slugs and snails may damage young leaves. Rust is possible.
