|Companion Plants||This Daylily's clear peach or apricot flowers blend well with the pastel blue blooms of Maries Balloon Flower (Platycodon grandiflorus mariesii) and Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus africanus). For a pretty pale-yellow companion, try the understated My Signature Daylily (Hemerocallis hybrids My Signature) and Dwarf Euryops (Euryops pectinatus 'Munchkin').|
Thrives in organically rich loam; adapts to most soil types, provided they are well-drained. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Remove old foliage and spent blooms for a neat appearance and to promote continued bloom.
