An exquisite combination of lavender and blackish purple paints the flowers of the Jane Trimmer daylily. This cultivar blooms in mid-spring to very early summer, depending on climate, and will rebloom several weeks later. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid 'Jane Trimmer' was bred by Dan Trimmer and introduced in 2002.
This daylily produces 5-inch-wide (12 cm) diameter flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. Six petal-like lavender tepals comprise each blossom that has a green throat. Tepal edges are minutely ruffled and black-purple, matching the wide bands that create a large "eye." The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that persist across the winter, particularly in mild climates. 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.
