Hemerocallis IV / Daylily

hembuffysdoll (300x290)Hemerocallis ‘Buffy’s Doll’ (Williamson 1969) – A repeat-blooming daylily which starts flowering midseason and features buff pink blooms with a rosy-purple eyezone and a bright yellow throat. The 3-inch wide flowers are nicely contrasted by the mid green grass-like foliage. Repeat blooms are promoted with regular deadheading and watering. Grows 16″ tall by 18-24″. Zone 3.

hembelalugosi (296x300)Hemerocallis ‘Bela Lugosi’ (Hanson 1995) – A spectacular deep purple daylily that really lives up to its blood-sucking namesake. The 6″ wide blooms are borne on strong scapes and are nicely contrasted by a yellow to lime green throat. This daylily has received awards from the American Hemerocallis Society. Semi-evergreen. Grows 28-32″ tall by 18-24″ wide. Zone 3.

hemwhitetemptation (300x296)Hemerocallis ‘White Temptation’ (Sellers 1978) – A rare near-white (or palest yellow) repeat-blooming daylily for the Alba garden, accented with an attractive lime green throat. It begins blooming midsummer with large 4.5″ wide flowers held over dark green foliage. The blooms are edible on this plant and make a great addition to salads. Grows 26-30″ high by 24″. Zone 3.

hemsouthseas (300x291)Hemerocallis ‘South Seas’ (Moldovan 1993) – The spectacular colouring of ‘South Seas’ is truly exotic with rich coral to mango coloured flowers accented with a salmon-red eyezone and a bright yellow throat. The blooms are fragrant and borne abundantly, although spent scapes should be removed. Divide in early spring or fall. Repeat blooms. Grows 30″ tall by 18-24″ wide. Zone 3.

hemhereliesbutch (300x296)Hemerocallis ‘Here Lies Butch’ (Agin 2009) – The large (up to 5.5″ wide) attractive blooms are fragrant and often described as being pure white with a purple eyezone – what I have seen (in the photo) is more a pale creamy-pink or flesh tone with ruffled edges and a yellowish-green throat. The foliage is evergreen with flowers scapes reaching 22″ high. Grows 24″ tall by 26″. Z3.
