With up-turned flowers that are ruffled and delicately yellow, the Perfect Peace daylily is among the prettiest available. Blooming in early summer, the flowers are a pleasant blend of creamy pale yellow with a lemon yellow throat. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid diploid ‘Perfect Peace' produces flowers atop a naked stem called a scape. The six petal-like tepals are round and very ruffled. These fragrant, grapefruit-size flowers rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that are semi-evergreen across the winter. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning, but then shrivels up by the time it's 24-hours old. 'Perfect Peace' was bred by Charles Applegate and introduced in 1989.
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.
