Hemerocallis / Daylily Bela Lugosi

Back to Daylily Catalogue                                                               

Bela Lugosi takes a year or two to reach full potential. The flowers are deep purple and very large. At 75 cm (30inches) it is a tall daylily, and the 15 cm (6 inch) flowers are a very unique addition to your garden. In our garden it shows even darker than this photo. On of our top all time selling daylilies.

Daylilies or Hemerocallis are easy care perennials for sunny areas. With several varieties mixed together you can have flower from Mid-June to mid September. Daylilies attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
Care: Deadheading (cutting off spent flowers to prevent seed forming) will make plants tidier and prolong bloom, especially for Tetraploid and re-blooming varieties. If soil quality is poor adding compost and fertilizer like bonemeal (high in middle number) will increase flowers. Cut foliage down in late fall or remove in spring. Daylilies may be divided every 5 years or when clump starts to die in center. Divide in spring or fall, using two forks to tease plant apart.                       Not deer resistant.
