DAYLILY: “Stella de Oro” or (Hemerocallis) - Perennial
I took this photo this year in my garden, shortly after the plant’s first Bloom. Isn’t this flower adorable?
Stella de Oro Lily is a fragrant long-blooming flower that attracks butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. I have it in front of my home, where she gets full and partial sun every day. It is a show stopper and it blooms non-stop from early summer to fall. It is not taller than 12” high and about 25” or so wide. This plant is literally carefree and only wants good well-drain soil. Water it well when you plant it, mostly during dry spells; if possible daily until roots established, then about once-a-week after established if there hasn’t been any rain during that period. Since it is a hardy plant, it can survive up to winter temperatures of -40 degrees F.
BONUS: This plant can be divided every year in spring or fall. Therefore, in few years you will have multiple plants in your garden from the one that you originally purchased.
