Design Ideas This carefree perennial fits into almost any garden. Spot into perennial borders as individuals or small clusters. Mass into a sea of color that functions much like groundcover. You can arrange them in a row against foundations as a mini hedge. With its strap-leafed form and flowers on long wand-like stems, Daylily offers dramatic relief between dwarf shrubs.
Flower Color Red
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants A red Daylily like this one is an extremely potent source of color in beds and borders. Use sparingly as accents in a bed of lavender Prairie Blue Eyes Daylily (Hemerocallis hybrids Prairie Blue Eyes) and apricot Children's Festival Daylily (Hemerocallis hybrids Children's Festival). Makes a fine bright spot amidst the blue-flowering Variegated Common Periwinkle (Vinca minor 'Variegata') or in a sea of emerald green English Ivy (Hedera helix).
CARE
Care 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.
HISTORY
Lore The name, hemerocallis is derived from the Greek for beauty and day because each flower blooms for just a single day.
