Plant Features

Rocket City Hemerocallis has blossoms lasting up to 16 hours a day in brilliant shades of orange. The slightly ruffled and curling petals are a bittersweet-orange with a burnt-orange eye zone and slightly lighter orange midribs and throat. The sepals are somewhat more pointed than other Daylilies and the petals even appear more so because of the manner in which they curl. Rocket City ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).

Common Names: day lilies, daylily, day lily

Hemerocallis Companion Plants: Crocosmia, Geranium, Grasses, Nepeta

Rocket City Hemerocallis Plant Care: Besides apply water if the plant starts looking droopy (which is practically never), there is not much else this plant needs. The flower stalks can be cut back after the plant is done blooming for the season. Dividing daylilies is not necessary unless you don't want them spreading. Division can be done in early fall when the foliage is being cut back to the ground.
