|Lore||In China where daylilies originate they were first cultivated as food and medicine rather than garden flowers.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Foliage to 1 1/2 ft. high, flower stalks taller.|
|Design Ideas||An elegant daylily is a stand out in the perennial border and is quite at home in the casual cottage garden too. Large enough to create bold accents between larger shrubs in the mixed bed. Daylily also looks quite natural around the edges of water gardens and pools. Strong foundation bed component to highlight entries and focal points. Plant as a single, in irregular groups or large masses for a see of flowers. Even works well lined up as a division within gardens or along a boundary. This color is outstanding against white picket fence or Victorian wrought iron.|

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.
