Hemerocallis 'Rosy Returns'

Daylily

Hemerocallis 'Rosy Returns' is a dwarf, everblooming daylily. Rose-pink flowers appear in clusters in summer atop naked stems that rise slightly above the foliage. Each flower is rose-pink with a deeper rose eye zone and a yellow throat. Flowers bloom from late May through September (sometimes to first frost). Flowers are fragrant. Each flower opens up for only one day and has a lily-like shape, hence the common name. 

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.
