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.
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.
