Moderate to fast-growing, clumping herbaceous perennial to 30” tall and wide. Hemerocallis has long been a versatile landscape favorite, prized for its low-maintenance nature, gracefully-arching foliage and long-blooming display of showy, lily-like flowers. This attractive variety features narrow, medium-green leaves accented with stems of eye-catching scarlet-red flowers that exhibit a sparkly-sheen, and rise above the attractive foliage in summer, attracting butterflies. Well suited as an accent or massed groundcover, as a pond or poolside planting, or in mixed shrub borders as a texture contrast to deeper-colored broadleaf shrubs. Also makes a fine container specimen. Tolerates a variety of soil types and while this variety requires little water once established, a more robust-looking specimen in achieved with regular watering in a partial to full sun exposure.
