- Out of all perennials, Day Lilies are the easiest to grow, giving you years of enjoyment
- "Apricot Sparkles" variety produces exceptionally beautiful, ruffled, long-blooming, deep-apricot blooms. These are flawless extended bloomers. They begins to bloom very early and re-bloom until frost.
- "Happy Returns" variety produces fragrant, lemon-yellow blooms with sepal edges that are slightly crimped. This re-bloomer is slightly larger and colored a much purer yellow than its parent, the "Stella de Oro." A reliable performer in warm and cold climates, this flower offers one of the longest blooms of any day lily. It looks great when planted with the "Pardon Me" variety and will be one of the first to bloom.
- "Pardon Me" variety produces fragrant, bright cranberry red blooms with narrow yellow watermarks and bright green throats. Their petals have ruffled edges, smooth sepals and are slightly re-curved. They were voted the best in miniature day lilies and bloom for a long period of time.
- "Rosy Returns" variety produces fragrant, long-blooming, rose-pink blooms with deep rose eye-zones and yellow throats. They're the first ever-blooming pink day lily and will bloom from June until frost.
- "Stella de Oro" produces fragrant, bright gold blooms over green throats with mild pie crust-edging. This is the longest bloomer and is the best known — and perhaps the most widely planted — day lily of all time. It blooms over a long period of time and performs famously in the landscape.
- Grows in almost any soil with any amount of moisture
- Attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and bees
- Blooms best in full sun
- Work the soil 12" to 15" deep into a good loose condition. Incorporate into the hole a mixture of good garden soil and compost.
- The crown of the plant should be placed at ground level. Work the soil around the roots as you cover the plant. Be sure to pack the soil well.
- Plant between 18" and 24" apart on each side.
- Apply fertilizer around the plant 2 weeks after planting.
- Water well at the time of planting.
- Water every three to four days for the first two weeks and then at least an inch of water a week.
- Most day lilies bloom best in full sun. They will tolerate part shade conditions but require a minimum of six hours of direct sun per day.
- If you cannot plant immediately after receiving these plants, please place them in a cool shady, location. Before planting we suggest that you soak the roots in water for 4-6 hours.
- Water at fairly long intervals in dry weather.
- Remove wilted flowers daily to keep a tidy garden, but this is not necessary as they fall off in a day or two.
- Fertilize in early spring.
- In the spring, do not remove the dead foliage from your day lilies until all dangers of late frost are gone.
- A light covering of mulch is recommended.
Delighted with EARLY Results!
W E L C O M E! P Alan! So very glad that HSN has added Moss Mountain as a vendor. Having watched you, and learned from your expertise via the garden shows on PBS, me & my gardens are jumping for joy. Here's my experience thus far. Shipped timely, zone 9. Packaging EXCELLENT! Followed instructions - removed all packing materials, set in a cool place, then bathed roots-6 hours per directions prior to planting. Results already - 2 - 4 inches of growth. I ordered 2 more different collections.LisaKingwood1, TXWas this review helpful? 0 out of 0 found this review helpful
