Yellow Day Lily
The South Border
A hardy perennial producing elegant,
trumpet-shaped flowers 6cm in width, bright
yellow, strongly tinged reddish-brown on
the reverse. Each plant produces
many flowers from June to August.
Site and Care:
Daylilies thrive in well-drained, fertile soil, but will tolerate poorer soils and heavy clay in sun or partial shade and will benefit from a winter mulch.There is no particular need to deadhead after flowering, but this will improve their appearance, and can help reduce infestations of hemerocallis gall midge. Large clumps can be divided in spring or autumn, replanting 10-15cm (4-6in) wide sections 30cm (1ft) apart.
