Hemerocallis x multiflorus

Daylily

Plant Type:

HEMEROCALLIS (Daylily)

Hemerocallis x multiflorus - This sweetheart of a daylily was sold to us many years ago as H. multiflorus. It is not pure H. multiflorus but rather seems to be a simple hybrid between the species and another unknown parent. The resultant progeny is notable. The golden yellow trumpets, very near in appearance to the species, open a bit earlier but overlap with straight H. multiflorus on stalks that rise from 46 to 52 inches. Trumpets display for about 4 to 6 weeks, handsomely and perfectly spaced on the branched upper portions of each stalk... of course, a completely subjective analysis though I think many would agree. The trumpets are slightly more yellow than the yellow-gold of straight multiflorus though the color differential is truly subtle. The flowers are self-cleaning. It is of moderate increase making a weed-proof clump over time. It is also a daylily that has captured our hearts... we faithfully look for it every growing season and our delight in its charm is replenished. The foliage is broader and less grassy than the straight species. The foliage also remains medium green and better looking into the late season with only minor deterioration. I wish we had a name for you but if names aren't of importance we can strongly recommend this sweetie.

Genus Overview: Hemerocallis

Common Name: Daylily

The well-known daylily. We have become increasingly taken with the late and very late bloomers. Those glorious daylily trumpets add such rich and contrasting texture to mops and strands of goldenrods, Joe-pye weeds and late season daisy flowers that occur in abundance at this time; they are splendid with the broad flattened domes of ironweeds, the spikes of Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Firetail’ plus the seeds and berries that so opulently populate the landscape in the late season. We are offering a handful of mid-season bloomers. Of course, most of the breeding has centered about these and for this reason many of these cultivars are fancier. But we find there is elegance in the simpler flower form and gentler colors, often soft pastels, in the later selections. Most of the late bloomers but not all have originated with Olallie Daylily Gardens in South Newfane, VT. All cultivars are hardy in USDA zones 3 to 9 unless otherwise marked. All of the following are sent as bareroot divisions of our plants.
