Product Details

Product Details

It has been hard to ignore the remarkable enthusiasm of a popular Daylily called 'Happy Returns.' In a genus known for vigorous growth and heavy flowering, this descendant of the now ubiquitous H. 'Stella de Oro' puts on a show that shames its neighbors. Bloom starts in mid-June, very much the early side of the Daylily season, and persists deep into October. The soft lemon yellow blooms are upright and perky on 18″ stems that seem immune to weather. They float just at the upper edge of the foliage, creating an impression of lushness and abundance that stays fresh even in baking heat. Each collection contains 18 H. 'Happy Returns.'




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

The Show Goes On & On & On!

JP Guy from Jamaica Plain, MA

We live in Boston, and planted these on either side of our front walk. The blooms started to appear in mid-June and re still flowering as I write this in mid-October. We've been getting complements on the flowers all season long. I can only hope they are breeding additional colors!

Busy mom, love low-maintenance plants from Richmond, VA

Bought my first batch about 8 years ago to put in the sidewall of our drainage ditch along the front of our property. They multiply every year and are just beautiful as well as helpful in keeping the wall from eroding. I've just purchased my second batch to put in the smaller ditch on the other side of our driveway. Have tried to mix in other Apps rebloomers from other sources, nothing has approached the quality of the WWF plants. I wanted to make the ditch a rainbow of reblooming color but this is the only color that WWF offers in large quantities for a great price (hint hint...) Love them, though!

My Favorite Daylily!

Corbycat from Olympic Peninsula, Washington

I bought the "Johnny One Note" collection several years ago and I've been extremely happy with the purchase. The daylilies are everything I wanted - long season of bloom, healthy, and best of all a lovely soft lemon yellow. I plant them in groups of 3 and the soft color goes well with everything. Friends beg for divisions.

Unbelievably long blooming season

Annie from Woodbridge, CT

We have these near the entrance to our home. They bloom from the end of May through Oct. Beautiful pale yellow. Put you in a good mood.

Super Fast Growing!

Bijioux from SOFLO

Maybe this is too soon to write a review, but I am so excited about the progress of my plants in a little over a week! I live in South Florida (Zone 10/11). I received my plants and planted them a few days later. In just over a week, they are already about 4" tall, beautifully green and healthy. I wanted to add some color into my tropical garden and I am anxiously awaiting for these guys to bloom. Will keep you posted, but so far so good and so happy!
I will order more plants from this site.

Of exceptionally easy culture, these long-lived stalwarts of the garden come in every hue but blue. Hardy, pest-resistant, and quick to multiply, Daylilies are ideal perennials with many landscape uses: as specimen plants in the garden or massed to stabilize a slope or to act as a carefree ground cover. Dwarf forms are good container subjects. Although each flower only lasts a day, the blooms open over a long period. Early, mid-season and late varieties are available and by planting some from each group it is possible to have almost continuous bloom throughout the summer. Hybridizers continue to expand the list of reblooming varieties as well.

Planting: When planting your bareroot Daylily, dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the roots. Spread out the thick roots in the hole and place the plant so the crown—where the leaves meet the roots—is 1″ below the surface of the soil. Holding the crown of the plant, push soil into the hole, working soil around the roots. Firm the soil around the crown, pressing down with both hands.

Light/Watering: Daylilies will grow in full sun in the North and will tolerate the same in the South with sufficient moisture. Plants grow well in partial shade, which is preferred for varieties with pastel flowers. Daylilies are drought-tolerant once established, but perform best with consistent moisture.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: These perennials prefer a well-drained loam with a pH approaching neutral. Soils rich in organic matter encourage profuse blooming, although many of the older hybrids will grow well even in a sandy situation. Fertilize lightly once the plants are established, but avoid using mixes high in nitrogen. A summer mulch is appreciated, since it will help soils retain moisture and buffer soil temperatures.

Pests/Diseases: Daylilies rank high on the list of plants resistant to insects and diseases. Thrips occasionally feed on buds or flowers, distorting the blooms and causing cork-like lesions on the flower spikes, which may then break at the affected area. Use insecticidal soap to discourage these tiny pests, and remove and destroy any infested buds or flowers. Spider mites can infest the foliage during hot, dry weather; wash them off with a forceful water spray regularly, or use an appropriate insecticide. Yellowing leaves and brown leaf tips result from normal senescence after flowering; regular grooming will keep plants looking fresh. If foliage becomes unsightly, cut it back to the ground, water well, and in time new foliage will appear.

Companions: Platycodon, Rudbeckia, Liatris, Shasta Daisy, and Echinacea are all fine companions for sunny situations; Ferns, Hosta, and Solomon's Seal are lovely with Daylilies growing in shadier spots. If you underplant Daylilies with Daffodils, the foliage of the former will hide the foliage of the latter as it dies back, and you'll get two gorgeous seasons of bloom from one area with very little maintenance.

Reflowering: Many reblooming varieties are now available; these require regular removal of old flowers to perform at their best. On all types of Daylilies, spent flowers should be snapped off daily and the entire flower scape should be cut off after all buds have passed.

Dividing/Transplanting: Daylilies should be divided every 3 to 5 years, and repeat-bloomers every two years since new growth supports the rebloom. Two spading forks held back-to-back and prised apart makes this chore easy. Transplant anytime the soil is workable, watering well after planting in the new location.

End of Season Care: Simply remove old foliage by cutting back to the ground or pulling off. Daylilies are very cold hardy, with the exception of some evergreen varieties, so a winter mulch is little more than a nicety.

Calendar of Care

Early Spring: Apply a light application of balanced or slow-release fertilizer low in nitrogen or side-dress with compost and organic amendments when new growth appears. Divide or transplant as necessary, watering well afterward.

Mid-Spring: Water well if it is unseasonably dry, as plants prefer evenly moist soil.

Late Spring: Remove spent flowers daily. Watch for flower thrips and treat accordingly.

Summer: Continue to deadhead as needed, and cut away flower scapes after all buds have opened. Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves. Supplement natural rainfall to provide an inch of water a week, and apply 2–3 inches of mulch around plants, keeping it an inch or so away from the crowns. Monitor plants for spider mites and spray if needed.

Fall: Remove old foliage by cutting back to the ground.
