Hemerocallis 'Red Hot Returns'
Common Name: Daylily
Brilliant cherry red, ruffled blossoms have a brightly contrasting yellow halo and an apple green throat. They rest just above the dark green foliage, held up there like a bouquet all summer long.
It is a vigorous grower that readily increases its foliage and produces several flower scapes per fan. This daylily begins blooming in early midseason and repeats bloom all the way into fall. And since it's an extended bloomer, each flower remains open for at least 16 hours.
Characteristics (Compared to Other Daylilies)
- Early Midseason Bloomer, blooming in early July.
- Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
- Extended Bloom with flowers staying open at least 16 hours.
- Semi-Evergreen foliage.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils and near pavement that is salted in winter.
Daylilies are some of the easiest perennials to grow and are a good choice for any gardener, from the beginner to the professional. Older varieties are able to bloom if planted in partial shade, but most of the newer introductions need full sun for best performance. Likewise, older varieties tend to spread more rapidly than the newer hybrids. Plants can be deadheaded for cosmetic purposes, but in most cases this will not extend the bloom time.
