A wild, bold but shockingly pleasant marriage of rose-coral and hot orange colors paint the Breed Apart daylily flower. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid ‘Breed Apart' was bred by Elizabeth Salter and released in 1996.
Depending on climate, 'Breed Apart' blooms late mid-spring to very early summer. Flowers appear atop a branching naked stem called a scape. The petal-like tepals are bright orange but become deep coral-rose the farther away from the throat. The minute, rippled "fringe" on the tepal edges is orange. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that remain semi-evergreen over winter, more so in mild-climate regions. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up well before reaching 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.
