Hemerocallis multiflorus x 'August Orange'
Plant Type:SUN PERENNIALS
Hemerocallis multiflorus x ‘August Orange’ - This hybrid is not often seen in the trade. The very large trumpets of 'August Orange' are bright saturated golden orange - the color glows bright without ever being hot. A grouping draws the eye and is a memorable sight. And 'August Orange' flowers for a surprisingly long period of time with exceptional bud count - and they just keep coming... its mid to late flowering period is no exaggeration. It is certainly beautiful when compared to naturalized roadside colonies of H. fulva, blooms later and much, much longer. We’re still evaluating it but its continual brass band of shining trumpets, larger than the straight H. multiflorus coupled with a very long bloom period have us questioning why it has been ignored.

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.
