Easily grown in average, moderate wet, well-drained soil in full sun to
part shade. Does well in a wide range of well-drained soils. Deadhead
spent flowers daily for neatness and remove scapes when flowers have completed
bloom. Divide to maintain vigor when the clumps become overcrowded.
Sometimes called citron daylily. This large species daylily features 6’
diameter, trumpet-shaped, lemon yellow flowers on scapes rising up to
45’ tall above a thick clump of arching, blade-like, leaves up to
40’ long. Flowers are very fragrant. This species is a nocturnal
bloomer. Flowers typically open up near sunset and close the morning of
the following day.
No serious problems. Daylilies are extremely adaptable perennials. They
are easy to grow and virtually pest free.
Provides color and contrast to the perennial border when grown in clumps
or when massed over larger areas. The fountain-like leaves provide elegant
foliage, color and texture for the garden when the flowers are not in
bloom. Daylilies can crowd out weeds and form a verdant ground cover.
