Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi'

Daylily

Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi' is a mid-season bloomer with large 6" very dark, deep purple blooms with a lime green throat. Strong plants with sturdy stems, excellent branching with good bud count and considered one of the best true purples with very sun-fast color.

Daylily Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Daylilies perform well in a wide range of soils, but prefer deep, fertile loams. Deadhead spent flowers daily for neatness and remove scapes when flowers have completed bloom. Plants are tolerant of summer heat and humidity, but appreciate deep watering in dry spells to keep foliage attractive.

For best performance, daylilies should be divided every 3-4 years in either fall or spring (spring is best in cold winter climates such as the St. Louis area). Hybrid daylilies will not come true from seed.
