Starburst® Mauve Evergreen Daylily
Hemerocallis x 'Monve'
|Description||Spectacular blooms appear in recurring succession throughout the warm months. Effective for borders, specimen or massed as tall groundcover. Large clumps of tall grass-like evergreen foliage.|

|Mature Size||Foliage to 1 1/2 ft. high, flower stalks taller.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Poolside|
|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.|
|Companion Plants||Group this beauty with other bold perennials such as Streamline Agapanthus, (Agapanthus africanus 'Streamline'), White Volcano Phlox, (Phlox paniculata 'Barthirtytwo'), Paul M. Wild Peony, (Paeonia x 'Paul M. Wild') and Joan Elliott Bellflower, (Campanula glomerata 'Joan Elliott').|
|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.|
|Lore||In China where daylilies originate they were first cultivated as food and medicine rather than garden flowers.|
