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.

Hemerocallis citrina (P-2097)

Each $8.75

AVAILABLE SPRING 2020

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.

Hemerocallis middendorffii (P-1318)

Each $8.25

AVAILABLE LATE APRIL 2020

<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.

Our featured plant: Athyrium niponicum var. pictum

Fresh Fern Fronds, Early-blooming Clematis, Marvelous March Foliage!

Fresh Fern Fronds...

Coveted for their artfully hewn fronds, the deciduous ferns featured above unfurl spritely new fiddleheads every spring. Varying shades of green, silver, henna and burgundy embellish their delicate-looking foliage. Tailor-made for shady nooks, these easily-grown flowerless perennials can be planted as specimens or en masse in shade gardens, mixed borders and woodland settings. They also lend exquisite feathered accents to patio containers or cut arrangements. Ferns flourish in cool moist well-drained locales enriched with compost or well-rotted manure. Feel free to peruse the Perennial section of our website for other Athyrium & Dryopteris species.

Exquisite early Clematis and marvelous March foliage...

Early-blooming Clematis herald spring with charm to spare. The armandii, alpina and montana Clematis species are generally the first to flower, with some even wafting sublime scents. Clematis armandii ‘Snowdrift’ and Clematis montana ‘Elizabeth’ sprout larger statures than the more petite Clematis alpina ‘Constance’ or ‘Jan Lindmark’, while all showcase beguiling blooms. These delightful vines can twine up arbors, trellises, walls or trees, offering vertical accents to the fresh flourish of head-turning foliage that blankets the beds beneath. The new growth featured in this newsletter was photographed this week in our garden and nursery.

All of us plant wranglers at the nursery, along with Boobah, our wee greeter and self-appointed nursery manager, and shy kitty, Parker, wish you countless happy hours digging in a garden of your own!
