Easily grown in average, moderate wet, well-drained soil in full sun to
part shade. Daylilies do well in a wide range of well-drained soils, but
prefer a deep, fertile loam. Deadhead spent flowers daily for neatness
and remove scapes when flowers have completed bloom. Daylilies should
be divided to maintain vigor when the clumps become overcrowded. Tolerant
of summer heat and humidity.
“Little Business” is a small-flowered, tetraploid cultivar
which features 3.5’ diameter, rose-raspberry flowers with darker
veining and chartreuse throats. Flowers appear on naked stems (scapes)
above a clump of arching, linear, blade-like leaves. Scapes typically
rise to 15’ tall. Individual flowers open for one day. Blooms in
early mid-season with repeat bloom. Winner of AHS Annie T. Giles award
(1975) for best small-flowered daylily cultivar.
No serious insect or disease problems. Daylilies are extremely adaptable
perennials. They are easy to grow, quick to multiply and virtually pest
Borders. Mass over large areas or grow in clumps. Fountain-like leaves
provide elegant foliage, color and texture for the garden when not in
bloom. Daylilies can crowd out weeds and form a verdant ground cover.
