Hermerocallis 'Apricot Sparkles', an outstanding selection from Dr. Darrell Apps' breeding program, is the most prolific Daylily we've come across in terms of blooms. It produces 3in, apricot flowers with a light dusting that makes them glisten in the garden. The show begins in early June and continues into fall with a succession of 2ft stems, each bearing 9–10 buds. The foliage is dark and narrow, an excellent background for its long-running show. 'Apricot Sparkles' is a knockout tucked into a bed of Nepeta, Perovskia, or Lavender. PP 13,223
Daylilies are a gardener’s dream. They offer glorious flowers in every shade except blue, a long season of bloom (though individual flowers last but a day), and a robust disposition that makes them easy to transplant, easy to maintain, quick to multiply, and resistant to pests. Planted together in large numbers, they quickly crowd out weeds and make a carefree and colorful ground cover.
We ship large, 2-year-old field-grown plants that usually bloom the first year. They will outperform lesser grades offered elsewhere. Except as noted, all are "dormant" varieties, which means their leaves are deciduous.
