Hemerocallis 'Collier'

Common Name: Daylily

Other apricot-colored daylilies will look dull in comparison to this vibrant, crowd-pleasing variety. ‘Collier’ is a polychrome daylily, or in other words, boasts a blend of colors. Colors include pink, gold, cream and yellow. The golden yellow color is concentrated in the center of the petals, just above the tiny lime green throat. Very attractive ruffling make the flower even more pleasing to the eye. Although it’s not registered as such, we have observed very good rebloom in our fields. Daylily expert  Arthur Kroll similarly noted rebloom in his own trials. 

Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).

Characteristics (Compared to Other Daylilies)
  • Early Midseason Bloomer, blooming in early July.
  • Semi-Evergreen foliage.
  • Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
