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.
