First blooming its orange-yellow and dark red flowers in late spring, the All Fired Up daylily conducts an encore bloom several weeks later in summer. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid ‘All Fired Up' produces 6-inch-wide (15 cm) flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. Each petal-like tepal is orange-yellow to yellow and edged in dark red ripples. A wide-banded, dark red eye is seen just above the yellow throat of the flower as well. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that remain evergreen across winter. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning, but shrivels up before being 24-hours old. 'All American Star' was bred by Patrick Stamile and introduced in 1996.
Daylilies are clump-forming and spread slowly via rhizomes. The blooms are commonly held in branched clusters on long leafless stems that stand above the foliage. All daylilies are easy to grow if provided full to partial sun and average soil with good drainage. Deciduous daylilies are the hardiest and survive in the coldest reaches of their range; however they may struggle in areas with mild winters. Evergreen types grow well in all but the most tropical regions but require protection where winters are harsh and cold. Their clumps spread over time and may need to be divided every three to four years. After plants bloom, it is wise to shear back their foliage to allow for a fresh flush of growth.
