With a primary flowering display starting by late spring, the Lace Cap Blush daylily will rebloom several weeks later in late summer to early fall. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid ‘Lace Cap Blush' was bred by Victor Santa Lucia and released in 2004.
This daylily produces its grapefruit-size, ruffle-edge flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. Petal-like tepals are medium pink-lavender with some streaks of light pink. Just above the light yellow and light green throat is a faint lavender watermark and a thin, darker lavender "eye". The scapes rise from clumps of strappy deep green leaves that die away each winter. A blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up well before being 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.
