The unusual and powerful colors of deep purple and rich cream gallop across these blooms! 5-6" blooms open abundantly in early summer and again in late summer on strong 30-37" stems. Zones 3-9. Bareroot. Hemerocallis 'Wild Horses'. Full sun to Partial Shade.
Daylilies are one of the best plants for American gardens, with their carefree dispositions, reliability, and wide range of bright colors. Once established, they can take heat, drought, poor soil and humidity with a smile, though foliage is most lush and blooms most numerous if they have plenty of compost added to the soil and receive water during dry times. Give them a spot with good drainage and plenty of sun, and they will delight you for years! We have selected some of the more unusual and also some of the more robust varieties for you, so you get to enjoy them two or even three times over the course of summer.

My plant is in it's second year and has been blooming for a month. Hope to see blooms later in the summer. Beautiful flowers.
I planted these daylilies in a triangle in the full sun.
Confident they will be a "5"! I have wanted these for some time and I think this is the time. Amazing how they actually give the image of "free galloping horses".
