Plant details

Daylilies are available in a wider colour range including pink and red, and with many named varieties. Although each flower only lasts for a day, there are several buds on each stem, and new flowers open daily. 'Stafford' is an outstanding variety which reliably produces many new stems of glowing, mahogany red flowers throughout the middle of summer. The arching, strap-shaped stems provide good foliage to back up other flowers for the rest of the season, and being evergreen should not be cut back in autumn - just tidy up dead or damaged leaves.
