Additional Information about Hemerocallis 'Rosy Returns'

The name "hemerocallis" is derived from the Greek words for "day" and "beautiful," referring to the individual flowers lasting for about 24 hours. 

Both the flower buds and open flowers of the daylily are edible, with the petals and sepals frequently used for colour contrast in salads. 


Growing & Maintenance Tips for Hemerocallis 'Rosy Returns'

Hemerocallis grow best in an average to moist, well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade. Daylilies with very dark flower colours benefit from more shade. They are adaptable to many soil conditions, even heavy clay soils and once established, will tolerate heat and drought. Prune the flower stalks down after blooming to improve the overall appearance and lengthen bloom time. They spread (some slowly, some more aggressively) by underground rhizomes. Easy to grow.
