Daylily, Parian China Daylily
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Large grapefruit-size flowers that are light apricot yellow with hints of peach bedeck the Parian China daylily. This cultivar blooms in late mid-spring to midsummer, depending on climate, and reblooms several weeks later. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid 'Parian China' was bred by Charles Reckamp and introduced in 1973.
This daylily produces flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. Each petal-like tepal is creamy light yellow and has tiny-wave edges. As the flower ages it attains more peach coloration. 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 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.
