Hemerocallis 'Desert Flame'

Hemerocallis ‘Desert Flame’

The intense color of this daylily is quite amazing. Flaming red on most of the petals turns to oranges near the throat. Flowers are large – perhaps around 5″. The plant itself is about 2 ½’ tall. Blooms for us start in mid July. It is meant to produce a second batch of flowers later in the season, but we have problems keeping our going through the dry season given that we are such free draining soil.

Cultivation Notes

Plants do not usually require dividing for several years and are easily split apart in fall or early spring. All old leaves should be removed in fall.
