This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
A glowing yellow-chartreuse throat in a mostly medium coral-pink flower is the highlight of the Glowing Bouquet daylily. Depending on climate, it starts blooming anytime from mid-spring to early summer. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. H. Dougherty bred the hybrid diploid 'Glowing Bouquet' and introduced it in 1989. Although not common, it may produce a few sporadic flowers several weeks after the early summer flowering season ends.
This daylily cultivar produces its flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. Six pink, ruffled-edge, petal-like tepals comprise a flower. The throat is a bright contrasting lemony chartreuse. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that die back each winter. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up 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.
