Bloom: Midseason, repeat (constant) bloomer
Colour: Lavender blooms with yellow throat and ruffled edges.
Several varieties of continuous blooming daylilies have been introduced over the past few years. In addition to the traditional Stella D’oro I have Happy Returns (light yellow), Rosy Returns (pink) and Purple D’oro (lavendar). Of the pinkish varieties I like Purple D’oro better than Rosy Returns as the colour is more intense and the blooms are a little higher over the foliage although it does not start blooming as early. Blooms start mid-season and continue through summer with sporadic blooms still appearing in September. Blooms are abundant with each scape having between 15 and 20 individual flowers.
