Reblooming Daylilies for Vibrant Summer Color

Reblooming Daylilies for Vibrant Summer Color

in Perennials | 0 comments

Daylilies are a classic plant for southern gardens. Not only do they produce large, spectacular flowers, they can withstand our heat and tolerate periods of drought. Previously a daylily would bloom for a short period in early to mid summer, then leave behind declining foliage. Later the Stella D’oro daylily was introduced which gave gardener’s a repeat blooming flower.

Today your color choices go beyond the yellow of the original Stella D’oro. You can now find repeater blooming daylily in pink, cream, orange and red. Some are called ‘super bloomers’ because they can produce up to 500 flowers after 3 years. For color in your landscape repeat blooming dailies can be a great choice.

There are many varieties of reblooming daylilies on the market but here are a few samples of the new colors you can find:

Pandora's Box

‘Pandora’s Box’ is creamy yellow with a purplish maroon throat. This combination looks good when placed among darker leaved shrubs such as Loropetalum.
