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.

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' high x 18" wide. Zone 3/4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
