Orange Daylily - Hemerocallis fulva
Orange Daylily is a perennial which, in the blooming season, produces violently orange flowers and emerald green leaves. The Orange Daylily is clump-forming, and can slowly spread on its own to fill areas and act as a semi-evergreen ground cover. The Orange Daylily is particularly cold-hardy, though in mild winters it is likely to begin blooming somewhat early. The flower is a great plant to have in your landscape because of its bright, vibrant bloom that it can give you come spring to summer months. The flower is a great centerpiece to have. Buyers should note that a daylily will almost certainly bloom the first year it is planted, but that it is unlikely to reach its full height until the second or the even third year after planting.
These beautiful flowers can grow to be up to eighteen inches tall and also bloom through the autumn months if the weather is good.
These plants are very easy to grow and are beautiful perennials as they grow back each year after being planted. They usually grow back thicker than the year before. They supply a very natural look and feel and look amazing when added to gardens and natural areas. These flowers also work great to create beautiful borders as they can grow to become very thick.
Orange Daylilies are well-known for their vibrant, orange blooms that you can sometimes see growing along roadsides around the country. It is an extremely hardy, adaptable perennial that does well in most any type of soil, whether in the sun or shady gardens. They will grow around 48” tall and up to 20-24” wide, so when planted, they need their space to reproduce. Butterflies and hummingbirds love them. However, they require little to no maintenance. Besides its deep orange trumpet of color, it also has long slender leaves and works wonderfully in adding texture and color to a flower bed, borders or natural area.
