I Love Hemerocallis ‘South Seas’

Jun 24, 2016 | Love This!

Name:  Hemerocallis ‘South Seas’ aka the South Seas daylily

Type of Plant: A perennial for full sun that flowers from mid-July into August. Hardy in zones 3-9

Why I love this: I love plants with a clear coral color in the garden. Coral blends well with yellows, purple, blue, white and beyond, so what’s not to love? Coral also shows well in a bright light, mid-summer garden. Daylilies are dependable, easy to grow plants and this is one of my favorites.

 A Word to the Wise:  Be sure you have at least five hours of dead-on sun including the noon hour to grow daylilies well. All Hemerocallis look best when the flower stalks and any browned leaves are removed after flowering in order to improve how the perennial garden looks from August into fall.

You can see the clear, deep coral flowers of 'South Seas' on the far right of this photo. It's a daylily that blends well with other daylilies, not to mention a host of other perennials and annuals.

Here's a garden shot showing 'South Seas' on the right of the path and on the left. See how well this daylily works with Echinacea 'Even Saul', Calamintha, Nepeta and 'Blue Horizon' Ageratum.

    The deer ate almost all my day lily buds.. I just listened to you show, Wireless Deer Fence is on order. Hope to see your garden in the future. We live in MD.
