Commonly called daylilies, these lovely perennials are hardy and bulk up, but happily, these modern ones don’t run.
I started collecting daylilies many years ago, my first were from Diana Grenfell at Applecourt, among others, and later from America. I was especially interested in collecting the sought after (and expensive) ‘blue’ ones as they were hybridised. The upshot is that I eventually ended up with over a thousand different, named plants. Sadly, we can no longer import them from America so some of them have become quite rare.
Our daylilies have been growing in large pots for about four years without being touched, ( I was concentrating on trees and shrubs!) so last autumn I split them and put them into 2 litre pots. They all have strong root systems and have been fed with a long term fertiliser. As you can imagine, we may only have ones or twos available so when they’re gone…. there will be another four year wait for more!
We will have Hemerocallis tables at CGS show at Wadebridge and Devon Plant Heritage at RHS Rosemoor, but any orders can be collected from any of other shows listed, just give us a ring or email us.
