To swap with Kathy Peck

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Deep yellow with dark purple eye and edge,dramatic and showy very floliferous.
Breeder Stamile 1991, dormant, height 2ft 4inch with 41/2 inch flowers.
I've listed as a 2litre pot but this one has recently been split so is growing in my nursery bed so isn't in a pot, all my plants are sent bare root with the roots washed and leaves trimmed and will be 2 or 3 fans unless otherwise stated, the plants suffer no ill effects and it is the way daylily sellers send their plants.

Plant Finder: about the Hemerocallis genus

Common names

Day lily


Hemerocallis genus (Day lily). These are perennials and some are semi-evergreen or evergreen. There are about 14 species but many thousands of cultivars have been produced. They are grown for their showy, often fragrant flowers which bloom in a vibrant range of colours. The individual blooms will only last for a day, which makes it vital to dead-head them regularly to extend flowering. Fully hardy. Does best in full sun and fertile, moist soil. Slug and snail control is essential in early spring when the young foliage first appears.
