    Design IdeasThis dwarf, carefree perennial fits into almost any garden. The soft, grass-like texture of daylily leaves offer dramatic relief between dwarf shrubs, and the wand-like stems provide cheerful color during the warm season. Spot into perennial borders as individuals or small clusters. Mass into a sea of color that functions much like groundcover. You can even arrange daylilies in a row against foundations as a mini hedge.

  • Care
    Care Information
    Thrives in organically rich loam; adapts to most soil types, provided they are well-drained. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Remove old foliage and spent blooms for a neat appearance and to promote continued bloom.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    This new variety is part of the EveryDaylily® series of hardy, dwarf, re-blooming Hemerocallis, and is an offspring of the widely popular Stella d'Oro daylily. Diploid. Introduced by Heemskerk, Noordwijk, The Netherlands in 2015. U.S.introduction by Ball Horticultural in 2016.
    The common name for daylily comes from the flowering habit of the plant. Each bloom survives for one day, but is quickly replaced each morning by freshly opening buds.
