Truly a vivid bicolor display when in bloom, the Raspberry Goosebumps daylily has yellow ruffle-edge flowers of purplish red-violet. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. In very early summer, the hybrid tetraploid ‘Raspberry Goosebumps' produces flowers atop a naked stem called a scape. The six petal-like tepals are variably burgundy to red-violet with yellow ruffles. Three tepals are narrower and not ruffled. The flower's throat becomes vibrant yellow. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that die away by wintertime. Each grapefruit-size blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up before it's 24-hours old. 'Raspberry Goosebumps' was bred by Joel Thomas Polston and introduced in 2004. This cultivar will rebloom several weeks later if given good growing conditions.
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.
