Hemerocallis 'Corky'


Plant Type:


Hemerocallis 'Corky' – LIMITED AVAILABILTY - no more than 1 per customer. Beautiful small bronze-backed yellow trumpets en masse emerge in midsummer. The flowers set atop dark red-bronze-purple stems rising from the strap-shaped leaves. Buds make a gorgeous display unto their own with gold, lime green and red-bronze-mahogany with a touch of gloss. 'Corky' produces an enormous bud count and flowers for a long, long time atop wiry stems. A single stem on a mature fan can produce as many as 40 buds. Foliage is quite narrow and grassy. Each fan is also small and narrow. Because of this we are offering this wonderful little daylily in our 3.5 square deep size pot, multiple fans per pot. A very nice relatively rare 1959 Fischer intro, now an heirloom, acclaimed by Christopher Lloyd, Ken Druse and Pamela Harper. Best in USDA zones (4b)5 to 9.

Genus Overview: Hemerocallis

Common Name: Daylily

The well-known daylily. We have become increasingly taken with the late and very late bloomers. Those glorious daylily trumpets add such rich and contrasting texture to mops and strands of goldenrods, Joe-pye weeds and late season daisy flowers that occur in abundance at this time; they are splendid with the broad flattened domes of ironweeds, the spikes of Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Firetail’ plus the seeds and berries that so opulently populate the landscape in the late season. We are offering a handful of mid-season bloomers. Of course, most of the breeding has centered about these and for this reason many of these cultivars are fancier. But we find there is elegance in the simpler flower form and gentler colors, often soft pastels, in the later selections. Most of the late bloomers but not all have originated with Olallie Daylily Gardens in South Newfane, VT. All cultivars are hardy in USDA zones 3 to 9 unless otherwise marked. All of the following are sent as bareroot divisions of our plants.
