Design Ideas Daylilies are traditional candidates for the perennial border. They also blend perfectly into mixed and shrub borders. Compound color by massing or combine two complementary colors for a dramatic composition. Excellent edging plant for rigid sidewalks, naturalistic flagstone footpaths and for tidy color at the edge of the lawn. Lovely for nesting rough edges of landscape boulders, or for color around rock strewn water features and dry stream beds.
Flower Color Yellow
Foliage Color Variegated
Care Thrives in organically rich loam; adapts to most soil types, provided they are well-drained. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Remove old foliage and spent blooms for a neat appearance and to promote continued bloom.
