Flowers: June-August.  Plant in sun or light shade.  HxS 1mx1m

This is a large plant, ideal for the bigger garden.  It has huge (15cm/6″) double, orange flowers, with gold and crimson markings, which are held well above the foliage.  It is ultra hardy and makes bold clumps quite quickly.  This daylily is good on ditch banks or as a waterside plant, as well as being tolerant of clay and other heavy soils.

Care & Maintenance.

Clear the old foliage in late autumn, winter or early spring as the new shoots of Hemerocallis are amongst the first to appear in spring.  The clumps are easily split as they start to come through.  Many Hemerocallis set seed, but only the species plants will come true.  Clumps should be split every four or five years so they maintain vigour.
