This is a large reblooming variety, producing masses of 12cm wide deep red flowers with golden yellow throats. When in flower it can grow to 90cm high and 60cm wide after 3-4 years, it is voracious at this size, so plenty of organic fertiliser in winter will help it reach this size.
Daylilies will flower repeatedly throughout the spring and into our early summer. They like moist, deep, well-drained soil and respond well to a layer of compost and mulch in winter. As herbaceous perennials, the foliage dies back in winter and reappears at the end of February, although the foliage will also die back in midsummer if the plant is deprived of water. They are easy to grow, drought tolerant and only need a sunny spot in the garden. They are a gardener's plant that will add a splash of colour and lush green foliage to a border or close to a patio, they are not suitable for xeriscaping or dry, unimproved soils, just give them some care and attention and they will continue to flower year after year.
Plant 30-40 cm apart, depending on the quality of the soil. Although they like full sun, this can be a little harsh in an Algarve summer, so some shade from other plants or a building is preferable. Once established, they require little maintenance other than feeding with compost and organic fertiliser and mulching each winter.
We are a plant nursery in the Algarve specialising in dry mediterranean species. We propagate and grow our own stock in conditions they are likely to endure when they are planted out.
We grow plants that are adapted to the dry land conditions in Portugal and southern Spain, both mediterranean perennials and succulents.
We choose plants that require very little water and maintenance. We produce a range of dry land plants that are typical of the worlds mediterranean regions. These are available to order ready for planting in the wetter months of the year. Please order the plants you need and we’ll have them ready at the best time for planting.
To ensure your new plants adapt and establish quickly, we produce them in special anti-spiral root pruning containers and a range of fibre pots (no plastic waste) with our own tried and tested growing media.
Please note we have no retail outlet or garden centre and are not open to the public. For more information you can contact us here.
