This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Fragrant, large-size, spider-like flowers with a blended array of colors are highlights on the Bali Watercolor daylily. It blooms most heavily in very early summer, and will rebloom several weeks later as fall approaches. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid ‘Bali Watercolor' produces huge, 9-inch-wide (23 cm) flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. Patrick Stamile developed this cultivar and introduced it in 2002.
The long, petal-like tepals are floppy and somewhat curled. They are yellow-green at their bases and then blush lavender-pink before finally turning deep rose-violet at their tips. Silvery blush can line the veined tepals, too. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy deep green leaves that are mostly evergreen across winter, particularly in mild-climate regions. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up well before being 24-hours old.
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.
