Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HEMEROCALLIS 'Chinese Scholar'
Chinese Scholar Daylily, Daylily
This hybrid daylily has large, Chinese-red flowers with yellow throats, held knee-high in branched clusters on upright stalks above the strap-like, arching leaves. Like other tetraploids (plants with extra chromosomes) ‘Chinese Scholar’ is a vigorous plant with uncommonly large flowers. The flowers are double (extra petals) with smaller petals at the centers, surrounded by the large petals. Bloom runs through summer and may repeat in autumn. In warm climates the plant is semi-evergreen.
Like most daylilies, ‘Chinese Scholar’ is not fussy about soil. Nonetheless, it grows and flowers best on moist, well-drained soil in full sun. The plant spreads slowly and needs to be divided every two to three years, more a bonus than a chore. This long-blooming daylily will make a notable contribution in summer to mixed beds and borders and is especially showy in mass plantings.
