Hemerocallis 'Strawberry Candy'

Common Name: Daylily

  • 4½", strawberry-pink self with a bright raspberry-red eyezone notched at the midribs
  • Orange-gold watermark and a small green throat
  • Tightly compressed ruffles on the raspberry-red edged petals; smooth sepals
  • Excellent propagator; one of the very best daylilies available
  • 1998 American Hemerocallis Society Silver Stout Medal Award Winner (AHS highest honor)

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.
  • Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
  • Extended Bloom with flowers staying open at least 16 hours.
  • Semi-Evergreen foliage.
  • Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
