Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HEMEROCALLIS 'Barbary Corsair'
Barbary Corsair Daylily, Daylily
The daylily is a reliable perennial that everyone knows and loves. The flowers of the midsummer blooming ‘Barbary Corsair’ are violet plum-purple with lime green throats. They are triangular to circular in shape and open during the day. Later in the season they often re-bloom, especially if deadheaded. The flowers are borne above semi-evergreen foliage that appears in spring. The plant forms tidy, small to medium-sized clumps of bright green strap-like leaves.
Daylilies are easy to grow if provided with full to partial sun, and average soil with good drainage. Their clumps spread over time and may need to be divided every three to four years. Otherwise, they require little care, though it is good to cut their foliage back if it starts to look worn in midsummer. Enjoy them in mixed beds, borders, containers and large mass plantings.
