Description
Like golden Stella D'Oro this beautiful little Daylily blooms for you all summer long.

About Daylilies, the most popular perennials: It all started with the original wild orange Daylily. Many Americans think the tough old orange Daylily they see in old gardens and along roadsides is a wildflower, but it really isn't. No Daylily is native to North America; most hail from Asia.

Don't confuse them with the true lilies: Daylilies are not really lilies. In fact, they are quite different. As you know, true lilies grow on tall stems with flowers at the top. Daylily flower stems (called scapes) are generally much shorter, and grow from a fountain of grass-like foliage at ground level. Daylilies are members of the genus, Hemerocallis, not Lilium, which is the genus name of true lilies.

Daylily Roots, not bulbs As all good gardeners know, Daylilies don't grow from bulbs like true lilies. Daylilies form a mass of thickened, fleshy roots. These unique root systems hold so much moisture and nutrients, the plants can survive out of the ground for weeks. This survival system, making them tough, and really easy to handle, is one of the reasons they're so popular today. They're also dependably hardy, so once you have them, you have them for years.

Types of Daylilies for today's gardens: The famous old orange Daylily and the well-known old Lemon Lily are not the only wild Daylilies, just the most famous. There are 20 Daylily species, worldwide. Today from those 20 plants, more than 20,000 hybrids have been created, to satisfy gardeners who love Daylilies, and just cant get enough. Hybridizing Daylilies for various colors and styles is not new. Famous old reliable hybrids like Catherine Woodbury--the lovely lavender and yellow bi-color--have been around for decades.

The re-bloomers for twice the bloom. Today's craze for re-blooming Daylilies all began with Stella D'Oro, the now-famous yellow dwarf Daylily that blooms once during late spring (the regular Daylily blooming season), and then again in late August and into fall. Today, there are hundreds of re-bloomers, from dwarfs to full-size beauties.

The latest and greatest: In any group of highly popular hybrids, there is always something newer and better. Some real break-through successes of new types for their times are Daylilies like Victoria's Secret and Big Smile, with elaborately ruffled petals and clear contrasts of magnificent colors.

              Comments about <em>Daylily Purple D'Oro</em>:

              I purchased these Daylily's because we currently have the yellow but wanted to add more color to our garden. Unfortunately, these have not grown at all. Hopefully, they'll grow in before the end of summer this year, and be perfect next year.

                Colors a little too intense

                Comments about <em>Daylily Purple D'Oro</em>:

                All fans of this daylily are blooming wonderfully year and I'm VERY happy with that. I just wish the colors were a little less intense. I was really hoping for more the soft lavender of the product photo, but they really came out with very rich purples and rich bright yellow/green centers (see attached photo). But different amounts of light and soil yield different colors.

                  Comments about <em>Daylily Purple D'Oro</em>:

                  I have a tiny backyard - only 4' by 45' and two 160 pound mastiffs who love to dig. So, a container garden is my only choice. I am a lily fan, so ordered several types of bulbs. They arrived on time, were beautifully large bulbs and were in perfect condition. I planted them immediately and they are growing like crazy. I can't wait for them to bloom any day now! Thanks American for great healthy products!

                  They have been in the ground under two months and they are all having babies already so I'm very pleased.

                  from Central Texas

                  Comments about <em>Daylily Purple D'Oro</em>:

                  This daylily bloomed darker than I expected, however, it adds depth to my multi-colored bed of daylilies so I'm quite happy with it. I would definitely recommend this one as it also weathered our Texas heat this past summer quite well.
