I bought several last spring for the first time. This year the bed really took off with lots of blooms on each plant starting around the first of May. The bed gets full sun from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. I've been dead-heading some the past week. This day lily is much prettier and hardier than the popular Stella d' Oro, plus it is a great re-bloomer.
Rainbow Rhythm® 'Going Bananas' Daylily Hemerocallis hybrid
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
One of the very best reblooming daylilies. Lightly fragrant, lemon yellow flowers open fully just above the relatively short clump of attractive green foliage. Blooms early in the daylily season and continues through the heat of summer into fall. Use in mass plantings or anywhere low maintenance perennials are needed.Fragrant FlowerContinuous Bloom or RebloomerFall InterestSalt TolerantErosion ControlAttracts:BeesButterfliesHummingbirdsResists:Rabbits
