Daylily - Spider Type

Plant Type:

HEMEROCALLIS (Daylily)

Hemerocallis 'Iktomi' - Spider type. 'Iktomi' is a late-blooming spider form. Its wine red self sports a yellow throat which extends into the petals. Petals are narrow and recurved and not at all casually relaxed as in some of the larger-flowered spiders. Fascinating is that Iktomi is a mythological character in Lakota lore. Iktomi is a robust and impish character who learns the ways of the Lakota people through sometimes precarious and sometimes funny situations. A cultural hero.

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.
