Daylily 'Autumn Red' {25 Bare Root plants}

Picture a spring-green meadow filled with miniature campfires ablaze in gold and red; this is Autumn Red. One of our more unusual daylilies, Autumn red features robust red 4 to 5 inch blossoms with golden throats. The flowers are non-fading and bloom profusely throughout mid-summer.

Unlike most daylilies, it re-blooms throughout summer with sufficient reliability to be categorized as everblooming. For her flaming petals of pleasing color and lush clumps of green foliage, Autumn Red is highly sought after.

Things to Note
If you seek the everblooming capabilities of Autumn Red, be certain that she has regular watering for optimal blossoms.

This variety is dormant and remains without foliage for some period of time that is variable by growing region.

Gardener Tips
We adore a garden with Aztec Gold and Autumn Red (see our discounted package), Butterfly Blue and Black-Eyed Susan. You will achieve lush textural elements combined with staggered bloom times and even multiple bloomers at once.

You could, of course, skip the Butterfly Blue if you prefer to stay within a yellow and red color scheme and replace it with Red Astilbe if your location is part shade instead of full sun.

Please read about bare root plants (especially the paragraph about bare root grasses) so you know what to expect.
General information about Hemerocallis (Daylily):
If you love lilies, you will adore our selection of daylilies! Offering a look-alike blossom in such a range of colors and bloom times that you can actually achieve a full season of color from a single species of flower, our daylilies are among the hardiest and most prized. Essentially, we’ve done the work for you, isolating the best options from pale yellow to dark golden hues and from mauves to pinks.

Basal, blade-like foliage arches gracefully from the daylily creating a complete groundcover useful for erosion control on slopes, as specimen plants or background plantings. Of course our selections are also reliable favorites tolerating a wide variety of soil conditions. Varieties are listed below by color and include individual plant information such as bloom color, bloom characteristics, height, bloom time and winter habit in zone.

A garden of daylilies looks like a summer tea party with orange and yellow china cups suspended amidst a tablecloth of green foliage. Why are they so beloved? Simply put, few garden perennials are easier to grow than daylilies. They are tolerant of poor soil, salt, high heat, and drought, but do bloom better with regular watering. They’re also pest resistant. Daylilies form a dense groundcover, choking out weeds in the process. They attract butterflies and hummingbirds, and some are fragrant.

Otherwise undemanding, daylilies will do best with at least six hours of sunlight and reasonably fertile soil. They perform well in a wide range of well-drained soils; however, they will steal the show if you give them a deep, fertile loam. Impervious to just about anything nature throws at them, you will still observe climatic conditions, seasonal weather variations, and general plant health all play a factor in a plant's ability to re-bloom. They are used for borders and edging, cut flowers, massing over large areas, in clumps as color accents, as backgrounds, and in containers.

Mixing early and late season bloomers in the same bed creates wave upon wave of color month after month. Most people are familiar with the versatility and vivid fusion of color daylilies bring to gardens, but what you will find among our selections are the cream of the crop offering color and bloom-time variety in addition to reputations for excellent performance. You just can’t go wrong!

Things to Note
Our daylilies are field grown single-fan divisions and have been in the ground at least two growing seasons, resulting in a large, hardy plant you will love. After you have placed your order, the daylilies are freshly dug, any long tops are cut back, and the plants are packed in peat moss. This ensures that the daylilies will quickly establish themselves in your garden while experiencing little transplant shock.

Keep in mind, most daylily plants shipped during summer will probably not bloom the same year. Daylilies delivered in early spring will have just begun to break dormancy, thus will tend to have smaller, tenderer top growth, and most will develop flower buds the first year.

Some people ask about daylily rust. We assure you we have never had daylily rust at our nursery.

Some of our daylilies are described as "semi-evergreen", meaning that they retain at least some of their green foliage well into winter (shedding leaves in cold climates but not where winters are mild).

Interesting Facts
Daylilies are edible. The young green leaves are edible raw or cooked. Older leaves become fibrous. Tubers are also edible raw or cooked with a savory, nutty flavor. Young tubers are best, though the central portion of older tubers is also good. Steam or boil the tubers as a potato substitute, or toss them raw onto a salad instead of croutons. The flowers can be eaten raw or cooked. The petals are thick and crunchy, making very pleasant eating raw, with a nice sweetness at the base because of the nectar. They taste somewhat like fresh peas. They can be fried for storage and used as a thickener in soups and stews, or used as a relish. Leaves and young shoots can be cooked and used as a substitute for asparagus or celery. Take small shoots, strip away the larger leaves, sauté in a little garlic and oil, add raw to salads, or simply steam and drench in butter for a nice, crunchy treat.

These lilies are very healthy and standing in a strut. I haven't seen them bloom yet, but it's a little early yet. Well packaged and fast shipping for these plants.

I just finished putting them in the ground…
Excellent service and quality!
I'll be back for sure in the Spring… if not sooner.
Although not a large flower, I ordered Daylily 'Autumn Red' for mass planting adjacent a wet area (slightly elevated ground). The plants simply took off and have multiplied over the past three years to fill a large area nicely. While in bloom, the flowers... Read full review >

Daylilies will do best placed in a wide planting hole, preferably amended with bone meal, rotted manure and some balanced fertilizer. Spread out the roots and plant the crowns about 2 inches below the soil surface. Water well after planting, and do not let them dry out until established.

Applying a balanced fertilizer in the spring as plants emerge will promote the amount and duration of blooming. It is recommended that you remove old foliage in late winter for best spring results. Be aware that daylilies will not thrive in poorly draining soil and will rot under soggy conditions. Fertilizing your plants immediately after each bloom period will promote re-blooming. In Zones 3 and 4, mulch with 5-6 inches of well-draining mulch in winter. Remember to remove mulch away from the crowns in spring.
