Hemerocallis 'The Last Melon'
Plant Type:DAYLILY (HEMEROCALLIS)
Hemerocallis 'The Last Melon' - We have special affection for this beautiful late season pastel cantaloupe melon; it's one that we always look forward to and one with which we would not be without. Single fans often produce multiple scapes and many of them. 'The Last Melon' offers an enormous bud count, it increases quickly and flowers for a long time. The color is soft, warm and gentle.

From Jan H. (CT) on 9.10.2015: Hello Wayne - The Agapanthus and Hemerocallis arrived early Wednesday afternoon ... What gorgeous looking plants ... so healthy and so big! They traveled very well. A bargain I'd say. Now if they do as well as the lovely woodland Peony I bought from you a few years ago I will be very happy. Thank you so much for your loving care of the earth! Jan

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.
