Hemerocallis 'August Flame' (Woods 68)

Hemerocallis 'August Flame' (Woods 68)

SunZone: 3-9 40" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! In August, when most daylilies are just a memory, there are a few that stand alone...in full flower. One of our favorites is the '60s hybrid (you remember the '60s...free love, ban the bomb, get outta 'Nam), Hemerocallis 'August Flame'. From mid-July through August, the 3-4' tall flower stalks are topped with clusters of large, bright red flowers, each centered with a dramatic yellow-orange blotch. Because of its height and late season of flowering, Hemerocallis 'August Flame' is an excellent choice for the perennial border. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04323

Hemerocallis 'Autumn Minaret' (A.B. Stout 51)

Sun to Part SunZone: 3-9 62" tall Origin: Hybrid    alternate image
Open House/Web-Only! This reliable, old deciduous Stout hybrid still ranks high on my list of favorite garden-worthy daylilies. In July and August, the clumps are topped with rigid, 5'+ tall, see-through stalks of fragrant yellow flowers with a dark peachy "eye" marking on every other petal. I can think of few other daylilies that blend as well in the perennial border during a time that color is so valuable. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #02107

Hemerocallis 'Black Eyed Susan' (Stevens 83)

Hemerocallis 'Black Eyed Susan' (Stevens 83)

SunZone: 3-9 28" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! With well over 150 different daylilies growing in our garden, Hemerocallis 'Black Eyed Susan' is at the top of our list every year. This amazing tetraploid daylily blooms for a long period of time in the South, starting in June (NC) and reportedly re-blooms well in the North. The 28" tall stalks are topped with 5" wide brilliant golden flowers, each highlighted by a contrasting wide, red, central blotch. Every year I think we must offer this great daylily, so finally, here it is. Give this a special spot in the garden! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08551

Hemerocallis 'Challenger' (Stout 49)

SunZone: 3-9 72" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! This amazing old Stout hybrid sends flowering scapes into the stratosphere before opening in midsummer. Each 6' tall flower stem is home to clusters of large, spidery, bright red flowers. Each flower has a large central pattern of yellow-orange and a matching streak that runs to the end of each petal. Because of the exceptional height, we use this in the middle and back of the perennial border...a true stunner! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04322

Hemerocallis citrina 'Yao Ming' (Yao Ming Daylily)

Hemerocallis citrina 'Yao Ming' (Yao Ming Daylily)

SunZone: 5-9, at least 60" tall Origin: China
When we acquired this from China as H. multiflora, we didn't know what to expect, but were rewarded with an amazing daylily. In midsummer, this gem produces 5' tall flower spikes that are well-branched toward the tip and topped with large, golden yellow, sweetly fragrant flowers that open in the afternoon. The long bloom time, sturdy stems and great branching make this a superb garden specimen. Unfortunately, it doesn't match H. multiflora, but more closely resembles a superb giant form of H. citrina, hence the name commemorating another well-branched giant from China. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #06875

Hemerocallis 'Forsyth White Buds' (W.  LeFever 95)

Hemerocallis 'Forsyth White Buds' (W. LeFever 95)

SunZone: 3-9 26" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! This splendid daylily comes from the hybridizing work of NC plantsman Wyatt LeFever. The 26" tall stalks are topped with balloon-like white buds that open to a brilliant red flower, highlighted by a golden throat. Hemerocallis 'Forsyth White Buds' starts flowering for us in late June and continues for a while, thanks to numerous side buds...one of our favorites. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08666

Hemerocallis 'Freewheelin' (P. Stamile 05)

Hemerocallis 'Freewheelin' (P. Stamile 05)

SunZone: 6-9, at least 34" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! This wild tetraploid daylily comes from the Stamile's breeding program in Florida. Hemerocallis 'Freewheelin' has been quite the attention-getter in our garden with a long blooming period during which the 34" tall, 6-way branched flower scape produces up to 50 large spider-like flowers. Each flower starts with a large central eye zone of chartreuse, outlined with a wide band of red and then ending with bright yellow petal tips. This is truly a stunning evergreen daylily.

Hemerocallis 'Gold Dust' (Tax Day) (Gold Dust Daylily)

Hemerocallis 'Gold Dust' (Tax Day) (Gold Dust Daylily)

Sun to Part SunZone: 4-9 18" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! Thanks to a customer, we have a name for this 1913 heirloom daylily hybrid, Hemerocallis 'Gold Dust'. The interspecific cross of Hemerocallis dumortieri and Hemerocallis flava comes from the late George Yeld of England. This is the first daylily to think about flowering in our garden, starting shortly after tax day and continuing into early May in NC. The short flower stalks are topped with bright orange, very fragrant flowers with dark brown stained backs. For the early season, this is a wonderful daylily that we wouldn't garden without!

Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus (Night Blooming Daylily)

Sun to Part SunZone: 4-9 40" tall Origin: China
Open House/Web-Only! Unfortunately, the newer "flower show" hybrid daylilies have gone far from their origin. This native Chinese species is truly one of my garden favorites. In July, the clump of Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus by our deck puts out 3-4' bloom scapes topped with dozens of very fragrant, narrow-petaled, lemony-yellow flowers...that's right...fragrant! The flowers open in early evening and close early the following morning, making them perfect for those that like to enjoy their garden at night after a long day at the office or for insomniacs who tire of the Psychic Friends Network. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #03170

SunZone: 3-8, at least 72" tall Origin: Hybrid
This 2000 H. citrina hybrid from Ohio's Curt Hanson (which originally sold for $100+) makes a statement in any garden. The masses of 6' tall branched flower stalks begin opening in late June to reveal large, yellow, fragrant, nocturnal (opens around 4pm) flowers. Shouldn't we all be looking up to daylilies? I think so! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07549

Hemerocallis 'Secured Borders' (W. Przypek 05)

Hemerocallis 'Secured Borders' (W. Przypek 05)

Sun to Part SunZone: 3-9 12" tall Origin: Hybrid
Open House/Web-Only! After years of breeding with a streaked Hemerocallis 'Hyperion', Virginia's Walter and Sybil Przypek hit the jackpot with this stunning, variegated daylily that is sure to be high on collectors' lists. The leaves of Hemerocallis 'Secured Borders' emerge in spring with a narrow green center surrounded on both sides with wide white borders. The small, 12" tall x 18" wide clumps make a stunning statement in the spring garden. As the weather warms, the variegation gradually disappears and the leaves turn green. The clumps are topped with short stalks of yellow flowers in early summer. The quantities are limited, so don't miss this opportunity. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #05626

Hemiboea
Hemiboea subcapitata (Glossy False Sinningia)

Hemiboea subcapitata (Glossy False Sinningia)

Light ShadeZone: 6b-9, at least 12" tall Origin: China
We have been stunned by the performance of this little-known Chinese African violet relative. The 1' long, glossy, dark green leaves are borne on opposite sides of a 1' tall, fleshy green stem. The plant spreads rapidly via rhizomes growing just below the soil surface, forming a 5' wide patch in just 2 years. Although the incredibly bold foliage is plenty reason to grow it, the clumps are topped in late September with clusters of up to 25, 2" tubular white flowers, spotted purple inside. Although we have only grown this in Zone 7b, we are already hearing reports of hardiness in Zone 6...amazing! Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07180

Hepatica
Hepatica acutiloba (Sharp-lobed Liverleaf)

Hepatica acutiloba (Sharp-lobed Liverleaf)

Part Sun to ShadeZone: 4-9 4" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! Finally, we have enough to offer of this great native woodlander that can be found from Canada south to Georgia. This 4" tall x 8" wide clumper has thick clover-shaped foliage, appearing similar to a cutleaf asarum. The foliage on many clones is attractively mottled with muted silver patterns. In a hot, dry summer the foliage may go dormant in mid-to-late summer. Hepatica acutiloba prefers a well-drained to dry woodland site. The tiny flowers, which range from white to blue, appear on 6" stalks in early spring...extremely cute! Our offerings are nursery-propagated from seed which takes about as long as waiting for Paris Hilton to make an intelligent statement...okay, maybe not quite that long. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #01847

Herniaria glabra 'Sea Foam' PP 15,989 (Striped Rupturewort)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 4-8 1" tall Origin: E. Asia
Open House/Web-Only! Since thyme is quite limited in our climate, we were thrilled to find a wonderful ornamental thyme substitute. Okay, it has no fragrance or culinary value, but Herniaria glabra 'Sea Foam' looks to all the world like a variegated thyme. This discovery comes from Hortech's Dave MacKenzie. The tiny green leaves are edged in creamy white...very cute! The ground-hugging mat makes a slowly spreading patch to 1' wide in two years. If that's not enough, rupturewort is great for urinary problems, since it increases urea and sodium emission without increasing urine flow. Aren't you going to be the popular one in the neighborhood?

Hesperaloe
Hesperaloe parviflora (False Red Yucca)

Hesperaloe parviflora (False Red Yucca)

SunZone: 5-9, at least 18" tall Origin: USA
Open House/Web-Only! This is one of the little-known native gems from the southwest US that is completely adaptable to most of the moist eastern US as well. Hesperaloe resembles a yucca but is a little more socially acceptable (safer around kids and bending gardeners) because it was born sans spines. The thick upright-growing, blue-green foliage makes a nice clump, especially from May through July, when it is topped with 40" spikes of rich salmon-pink flowers in late summer...a truly wonderful plant, especially in mass plantings. While hesperaloe is very easy to grow, it will perform much better in very dry soils. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #00917

Heuchera 'Caramel' PP 16,560 (Caramel Coral Bells)

Sun to Part SunZone: 4-8, at least 12" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
I first saw the handiwork of French breeder Thierry Delabroye on a trip to Holland. I returned home with a plant of H. 'Caramel', and I planted it beside other coral bells that were on trial. By the end of the summer (more than 100 days over 86 degrees F), most of the coral bells were dead. However, H. 'Caramel' loved the weather. The reason is the use of the heat-loving H. villosa in the breeding line. The 1' tall x 2' wide hairy clumps emerge with butterscotch foliage which changes to peachy-orange as the season progresses. These sun-tolerant plants are topped in summer with tall spikes of small white flowers. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07126

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 4-8, at least 12" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
If you like the yellow-leaf coral bells but they haven't proven to be heat tolerant in your climate, your solution is here. From France's Thierry Delabroye comes Heuchera 'Citronelle', a gold leaf mutation from his wonderful H. villosa hybrid, H. 'Caramel'. Like its parent, H. 'Citronelle' makes a 1' tall x 18" wide clump of golden foliage, topped in summer with tall spikes of small white flowers. H. 'Citronelle' doesn't seem to enjoy full sun like most of its siblings...must be a blonde thing. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07703

From the great breeding work of Charles Oliver comes a vigorous new coral bell, thanks to the inclusion of our native H. villosa in the parentage. The attractive, pink-purple foliage with darker veining adorns the huge 2'+ wide clump. In late spring, the clumps are topped with 30" flower spikes of small, light pink flowers. This is a real winner...especially for East Coast gardeners. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #04995

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 4-8, at least 14" tall Origin: USA Hybrid
Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' is the newest coral bell hybrid containing the heat-loving H. villosa. We were particularly impressed at how well they looked after our 3 weeks above 100 degrees F. This vigorous Terra Nova introduction makes a 2' wide clump of large peachy-red leaves, each highlighted by darker red veining. The 14" tall clumps are topped in late summer with 30" spikes of small white flowers. Although H. villosa hybrids are much more tolerant to adverse growing conditions, we still recommend a well-drained soil. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #07876

Open House/Web-Only! Heuchera 'Miracle' is the latest from French plant breeder Thierry Delabroye, who revolutionized coral bells for hot climates with the addition of Heuchera villosa to the gene pool. Heuchera 'Miracle' forms a 1' tall x 2' wide clump that grows through late spring and summer with chartreuse gold leaves, but once the cool weather of fall approaches, the leaves develop a subtle red veining. As the cool weather continues, the red color in the leaf intensifies. After the plant has spent the winter outdoors, the spring effect of a red leaf with a yellow margin is simply stunning!

The clumps are topped from mid-April through early July with 15" tall sturdy spikes of small rosy-red flowers. This is unquestionably the best flowering coral bell we've ever trialed. As with all coral bells, we'd recommend a well-drained garden site as well as dividing them every 2-3 years. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml) #08503
