A mix of pastel colors paints the Antique Fringe daylily flower. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid ‘Antique Fringe' was bred by Van Sellers and released in 1995. It produces its fringe-edge flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. The petal-like tepals are peach with hints of pale pink. The minute, rippled "fringe" is deeper peach to gold. The flower throat is golden yellow and a deep rose blotch occurs just outside the throat to create an "eye." The scapes rise from clumps of strappy deep green leaves that die away over the winter months. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up well before being 24-hours old. Depending on climate, 'Antique Fringe' blooms late mid-spring to very early summer.
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.
