Double Orange Daylily
Hemerocallis fulva 'Flore Pleno'

1 gallon pot


A midseason daylily that produces large, double, dark orange, 6-inch trumpet-shaped flowers, with a rusty-red center atop leafless stalks. Rising from a mound of arching, strap-shaped, green leaves, each flower typically lasts no more than 24 hours (thus the common name 'daylily'), opening up in the morning and withering that night, possibly replaced by another one on the same flower stalk the next day. An ideal choice for shrub borders or perennial beds, as ground covers on slopes or in containers near the patio.


Thrives in full sun to part sun in average well-drained soils. Tolerates heat and summer humidity, but thorough watering is required to ensure its foliage remains attractive. After flowering, remove spent blooms and seedpods to improve the appearance and encourage rebloom. When all the flowers on a stalk are finished, cut off the stalk close to ground level. Remove dead foliage from daylilies as they die back in the fall.


Daylilies attract butterflies and hummingbirds but are toxic to cats. Rabbits tend to avoid daylilies. No serious pest or disease issues.


The best time to plant Daylilies is in early fall or early spring.
