Set your benches and gardens ablaze with the large 5½”, flaming red-orange blossoms of this reblooming daylily. Its color is so vibrant, you’ll need sunglasses to even look at it! Daylily expert Arthur Kroll calls ‘Desert Flame’ “the most beautiful in its color class, a terrific daylily”, and we completely agree!
It is an excellent garden performer too, producing its beautifully ruffled, recurved flowers of excellent substance with a lime green throat and orange stamens first in midseason and then again later in fall. This is a taller daylily with very strong, well-budded and branched scapes and foliage that stays nice looking all season long.
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).
This is considered a premium daylily, which means that it has been selected as highly performing plant with exceptional bloom performance, substantive, vibrantly colored flowers, complete winter hardiness in northern zones, and a vigorous habit. Out of the hundreds of varieties we have evaluated for our catalog, we consider this to be one of the 20 best we have available.
