Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy

Sowing time/depth , 0.5in/12mm
The large, trumpet-shaped blooms of this sunny plant last only a day, but during the flowering season they appear in abundance. This variety is stunning, with deep-apricot, ruffled petals with a soft lighter streak running down the centre of each. All daylilies come from hybrid stock and will not come true, so seeds, when available, may produce plants with flowers ranging in colour from red through orange, apricot and yellow.

Plants, when offered, will be sourced from the garden to order and sometimes delivered bare-rooted.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow during late winter, a couple of months before the last frosts are expected. You can probably sow in a frost-free greenhouse, in moist, good quality compost, but a surer method is to moisten a folded piece of kitchen towel and place this, along with your seeds, pressed gently into the moist towel, in a small plastic bag. Seal and place in the fridge, checking regularly to see if germination has occurred. Pot up any sprouted seeds half an inch deep, in small pots or modules containing good-quality seed compost and grow on in light, frost-free conditions, ensuring that they never dry out. Plant out when all danger of frost is past. Hemerocallis are generally easy to grow and maintain. They prefer a free-draining, fertile soil, but will tolerate most reasonable conditions. A sunny position is recommended, but daylilies can cope with a little shade.
