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 ‘Corky’  full sun  partial shade

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.

Chinense Daylily
Hemerocallis middendorffii Hemerocallis middendorffii

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.

Hemerocallis ‘Speak of Angels’  full sun  partial shade
Hemerocallis  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: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
