|Lore||In China, the native yellow daylily was more commonly a food crop than an ornamental.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Foliage to 1 1/2 ft. tall, flower stalks taller.|
|Design Ideas||This miniature Daylily is a carefree perennial that fits into almost any garden, no matter how small. Spot into perennial borders as individuals or small clusters. Mass into a sea of color that functions much like groundcover. These little fellows are great in containers, pots or troughs and window boxes. With its strap-leafed form and flowers on long wand-like stems, Daylily offers dramatic relief between dwarf shrubs.|

|Companion Plants||A beautiful plant to take the place of finicky Asiatic Lily. Use this Mini with the exotic but very easy Sword Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata) or Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria Hybrids) with its pretty Azalea-like flowers. Try in alternating clumps with Little Grapette Miniature Daylily (Hemerocallis hybrids 'Little Grapette') woven into a carpet of the lovely blue-flowered Dalmatian Bellflower (Campanula portenschlagiana). For more cottage-garden charm, add the casual Wayne Roderick Fleabane (Erigeron x 'Wayne Roderick').|
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.
