Daylilies are one of the easiest perennials to grow -- they tolerate almost any soil and show off their brilliant blooms in sun or partial shade. Best of all, the show goes on for months and months! The color selections in our Charming Daylily Collection are well balanced to produce a vibrant display.

FRANS HALL - Truly original! First introduced in 1955, this warm bi-color sports alternating rusty, cinnamon-red and yellowish-apricot petals. The red petals display striking creamy midribs. Each bloom is 4 ". Grows 24-28" tall. A hardy, prolific rebloomer, flowers mid to late-summer.
 
MARDI GRAS PARADE - Lightly ruffled, bright rose-lavender blossoms 4" across make this an extremely festive daylily. A green throat is surrounded by a light lavender band which blends into the darker wine-purple eye. Blue-green foliage with good form. Grows about 25" and blooms in mid-season or longer.
 
MY WAYS - 'My Ways' features 5" velvety ruffled, red-violet flowers with large, cool green throats. This cultivar is especially tall reaching 36" in height. Quite sunfast, My Ways blooms in early to mid-summer.
 
PRAIRIE BLUE EYES - Introduced in 1970, this majestic variety has bluish-purple blooms with shining, bright-yellow centers, subtle white midribs and dark veins. Petals are finely ruffled with slight seersuckering. In cooler weather, the flowers show more of a raspberry hue. Grows to 28" and blooms mid-season.
 
MARY TODD - Introduced in 1967, Mary Todd is one of the brightest yellow daylilies on the scene and a multiple award winner. Blooms show luxurious ruffles with a heavy texture. Grows 26" tall with each bloom measuring 6". Blooms in early summer -- one of the first.
 

GROWER'S TIP:

Reliable daylilies grow in just about any soil type as long as it is well-drained. Full sun is preferable, but they will also grow in full shade with fewer flowers. Daylilies are very hardy and drought tolerant thanks to their thick fleshy roots which enable them to store water. Little care is required. However, it is a good idea to deadhead spent flowers - the plant will look better and you are also preventing it from going to seed which can weaken it. You may also want to trim your daylilies back to 6-8" from the ground at the end of the season to spur regrowth next year.
