Quick Overview:

One of only a handful of truly everblooming daylilies, this little charmer blooms non-stop for about 3 ½ months straight beginning in mid-June in zone 7 or early July in zone 5.  Each 4″, soft peachy yellow blossom with a large, rose pink eye, lemon throat, and romantically ruffled petals is of perfect form. You’ll be impressed with how quickly this daylily bulks up and unlike most daylilies that produce a single flower scape per fan, this one often produces several scapes per fan, making it extremely floriferous in the landscape.  Its short stature and continuous flower show makes this the perfect daylily for growing at the front of the border and in containers.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Daylilies perform well in a wide range of well-drained soils, but prefer a deep, fertile loam. Deadhead spent flowers daily for neatness and remove scapes when flowers have completed bloom. Tolerant of summer heat and humidity, but appreciate deep watering in dry spells to keep foliage attractive. Daylilies should be divided to maintain vigor when the clumps become overcrowded.

Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
