Starburst® Red Evergreen Daylily
Hemerocallis x 'Mond'
|Description||Large clumps of tall grass-like evergreen foliage. Spectacular blooms appear in recurring succession throughout the warm months. Effective for borders, specimen or massed as tall groundcover.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, especially when in bloom.|
|Mature Size||Foliage to 2 1/2 to 3 ft. high, flower stalks taller.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Poolside|
|Design Ideas||Fabulous planted along a drive or walkway. Also works well grouped as informal, low hedges to separate different parts of the garden. Mass into a sea of color that functions much like groundcover. Strap-leafed form and flowers on long wand-like stems add relief between dwarf shrubs. Spot into perennial borders as individuals or small clusters, or at the border's edge to add texture and form.|
|Companion Plants||Add more warmth to the red of this Daylily with Paprika Common Yarrow (Achillea millefolium 'Paprika'), then cool it down with the lavender-blue of Benenden Blue Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis 'Benenden Blue') or Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus).|
|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, daylily have been cultivated since 2697 BC. The blossoms are cooked in various dishes and utilized in traditional medicine.|
