One of the Best! Great Color, 100’s of Blooms, and Lush Foliage!
• Striking Color Combination on Large Flowers
• Blooms – and then Blooms Again!
• Extremely Easy to Grow!
Vibrant and Unusual Colors on Blooms with a Beautiful, Rounded Form
What a glorious color combination! Diamond-dusted ivory glows against the deep, deep purple of the central eye and narrow edging – all presented on broad, overlapping petals that curve back to make a rounded shape, very much in the modern style for Daylilies! Add lush, arching foliage and unusual vigor, and you see why this Daylily is considered one of the best!
Hundreds of Blooms Each Year on One Mature Plant!
This plant is so vigorous that each scape, or stem, holds 20 to 25 buds; imagine the glorious sight of a mature plant with 20 or 30 stems or more – over the course of the season, you’ll enjoy hundreds of these beautiful blooms! Even better, after completing its huge midsummer show, Blackthorne is such a strong grower that it will start blooming all over again in late summer, providing fresh color just when it’s needed in the garden! The blooms are 4½ to 5 inches, and each lasts a day, which is why it is so important for a Daylily to produce a lot of blooms!
Tough as Nails, and So Easy to Grow!
The delicate beauty of the blooms belies the sturdy constitution of the plant! Not only is it impervious to summer’s worst heat and winter’s worst cold, it also takes drought and humidity in stride and can survive harsh conditions like polluted city environments and positions near roads that are salted in winter; they will even grow in that most difficult of places, under Walnut trees!
Plant in full sun to dappled shade. It will grow in most any soil and takes drought well, but will grow most lushly when given water during dry spells, and soil with plenty of compost or humus added at planting. But, basically, all you have to do is sit back and let the plant do its thing!
