Red Daylilies, also known scientifically as Hemerocallis spp., are easy-to-grow perennials.
The scientific name means "Beauty for a Day,"--hence the name "daylily." Perfect for borders and edging, tolerant of drought, and unaffected by high temperatures, the Red Daylily is able to grow in most soils and goes well with blooming plants in other colors. The Red Daylily blooms reliably in the spring through late summer. While the most common variety is the Stella D'oro or yellow daylily, daylilies come in shades of red, purple, orange, and pink ranging from one color with different colored stamens to more eclectic polychrome patterns or blooms with three or more colors.
The Red Daylily is resilient and gives birth to strong stems, known as "scapes," that grow continuously from the center of a grassy mound. Red Daylily clumps grow up to five feet tall and span between two to four feet wide. When planting, space the bare roots at least three feet apart. Plant Day Lily bulbs or roots in early spring or fall one month before or after a hard frost. In northern regions, the Red Daylily is best planted in the spring to ensure good root development during the summer before winter arrives.
When planting your Red Daylily, create a two-foot plot and loosen the soil. Next, dig a hole at least one foot deep to accommodate the size of the bulb or roots, and fertilize with compost if the soil is poor. Plant the crown of the root an inch below the soil line, angling the roots outwards and downwards. Replace the soil, spread it evenly, and tamp down to get rid of air pockets. When the hole is two-thirds full of soil, water your Red Daylily generously, fill the hole with the rest of the soil, then water again.
Even though the Red Daylily is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds deer, it should not be eaten by your cat. Planting Red Daylilys with other herbaceous flowering plants will add texture and color to your garden sanctuary.
