Hemerocallis

Daylily

Named for the fleeting nature of their 6-petaled trumpetlike blossoms, Daylilies are hardy and easy to grow. Their strap-shaped leaves arch gracefully to form clumps of brilliant green. The buds and flowers are considered a delicacy by the Chinese, who enjoy them fresh or wilted in salads. Our selections are deciduous.

Cultivated since 1902, this amenable Chinese denizen presents splendid lemon-toned blooms well above a compact dark green fountain of lustrous tailored foliage. The nocturnal 6 in. wide blooms open late in the day, welcoming butterflies and plant purveyors alike with narrow recurved petals, a pronounced trumpet shape and a lovely fragrance. Well-suited for the rockery, cottage garden or an adequately drained mixed border, pest-free Hemerocallis citrina tolerates bunnies, air pollution plus an array of garden soil.

Blooms June–July

Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 3.

This dwarf Daylily has a refined and dainty, yet in some ways, exotic look. Persistent, richly colored brown buds and mahogany-striped, deep yellow flowers grace numerous branched stems arising from bright green, narrow foot high leaves. With its unusual blend of yellow and mahogany, ‘Corky’ can be celebrated en masse in a bed or individually in the rock garden.

Blooms mid-June – late July.

Size: 20" high x 12" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

Gracing gardens since the 16th century, lovely lily-style bright lemon-yellow flowers promise a sweet fragrance and the earliest bloom time. Shiny strap-like bright green leaves describe a verdant semievergreen mass beneath dozens of narrow-petaled, 3 to 4 in. long blossoms, which are popular in Asian cuisine and favored by hummingbirds. This robust Chinese native can be planted near pathways, massed in mixed borders or allowed to naturalize, where it complements blue-flowering perennials, wards off bunnies and smothers weeds.

Blooms July–August

Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 3.

<i>Hemerocallis middendorffii</i> <i>Hemerocallis middendorffii</i>

Chocolate-brown tipped buds open early into marigold orange-colored flowers above a low growing clump whose narrow, grassy green blades look ornamental even on their own.

Delivering a delightfully bright and fragrant performance in the garden or a bouquet, the broad, six-petaled blooms are held in dense clusters by blunt, cupped bracts. This northeast Asian native acquiesces to dry conditions once established and enlivens the rock garden or a pathway’s edge.

Blooms May–June.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide.

Zone 3/4.

<i>Hemerocallis</i> ‘Speak of Angels’

Conjuring angels colored by children’s crayons, as many as 25 soft pink blooms festoon each stem. Each 6 in. wide flower showcases undulating margins and a halolike lavender band that rims the long, vibrant chartreuse throat above a bed of arching sword-shaped blades.

Blooms June – July.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.
