Special Attributes

The winner of the 1997 Stout Silver Medal, the reblooming 'Always Afternoon' Daylily produces large, raspberry-pink flowers nearly 6 inches in diameter with eye catching green to yellow throats and deep plum centers. Its long-blade, grass-like, green leaves are the perfect compliment to the flowers which appear in early summer and continue into fall! A must have variety for daylily lovers!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to about 24 inches tall and gradually spreading to form a 24 inch wide neat clump, the Always Afternoon Daylily is ideal for use in groupings, stunning mass plantings, or as a border along paths and walkways in landscape borders or mass planted on embankments, hillsides and slopes. Also nice as an accent or small grouping in small garden spaces or as a solo or mixed with other sun-loving plants in combination container gardens. A fine addition to daylily gardens, perennial gardens or yellow color theme gardens. 

Spacing:  15-18 inches for mass plantings or as a solid border edger; 36 inches or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

When planted right and in the right spot, Daylilies are exceptionally easy to grow. Though they will perform well in a wide range of soil types and conditions, they prefer a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility. Full to mostly sun is preferred however plants will tolerate some lightly filtered sun or shade.We suggest at least 5 hours of direct sunlight for best flowering. Daylilies don't require deadheading but the removal of spent flower scapes (stems) encourage rebloom. When established, daylilies are moderately drought tolerant.
