Easily grown in a wide range of conditions, the daylily is a trouble-free plant with single or double flowers. As its name suggests, individual flowers last only one day, but they are produced over a long period. They come in a wide range of colors, the main ones being shades of yellow, orange, red, magenta, and purple. The clumps of grassy foliage may be from 10-39 inches high; some are evergreen while others die down in winter. We carry the unique and rare "Siloam Peony Display Daylily", which is a true treasure in its bountiful blooms. Daylilies have been divided into five categories which list them according to flower type. The divisions are circular, double, spider-shaped, start-shaped and triangular. Most are single; hot weather can produce extra petals and stamens. We do carry some of the dwarf forms such as "Stella d'Oro". They are good to try and can grow in pots. They grow to be 12 x 18 inches tall. Mass plantings of dwarf or tall forms create the best effect. Daylilies are not plants that should be dotted about in the garden. Use large numbers of either the one variety or use varieties of similar color and plant a mixture of types of colors. In a mixed border they give a very pleasing effect as the foliage is very full. They grow best in full sun but tolerate semi-shade. Can be mass planted on banks or sloping ground as the roots are very efficient soil binders. Grows in any type of soil, wet or dry, but to get maximum growth from the newer hybrids the soil should be enriched with manure or compost before planting. Sow in February and March. Transplant in April-May and divide in October. It flowers from June to September.
