Summer-Long Daylily Collection
Moss Mountain Farm 10-piece Summer-Long Daylily Collection
I always recommend daylilies to anyone interested in growing flowers in their garden because they’re low-maintenance, showy, and the late-blooming varieties will offer bold, trumpet blossoms until fall. I plant them everywhere at the farm—in the terrace gardens, near the house in containers, and even in the vegetable garden.
In this particular collection, we’ve included the best of the long-blooming daylilies. Most daylilies have 1, maybe 2, bloom cycles, but those included in this collection are all bred for 3, 4, or 5 bloom cycles. Here at the farm, the showstopper is ‘Stella de Oro,’ which will have as many as 5 bloom cycles.
- Stella de Oro
The bright gold complete self with its mild pie crust edging sits above a green throat. This is the longest bloomer of any we list and are the most widely known and perhaps planted daylilies of all time. The plant blooms over a long period of time and performs famously in the landscape.
- Happy Returns
Lemon yellow bloom has tepal edges that are slightly crimped. Descended from ‘Stella de Oro,’ this re-bloomer is slightly larger and is a much purer yellow than its parent. ‘Happy Returns’ is a reliable performer in warm and cold climates. It’s one of the first daylilies to bloom and has one of the longest blooms of any daylily. I particularly love how great ‘Happy Returns’ looks when planted with ‘Pardon Me.’
- Pardon Me
Bright cranberry red self with a narrow yellow watermark and bright green throat. Petals have pie crust ruffled edges, sepals are smooth, and both are slightly recurved. Voted best in miniature daylilies. Very long blooming. Great garden combination when planted with Happy Returns for a full season of bloom!
