When summer has its firm grip, the rich red flowers of the Red Razzle Dazzle daylily finally appear. This cultivar blooms in very late spring to late midsummer, depending on climate. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. The hybrid tetraploid 'Red Razzle Dazzle' was bred and introduced in the mid 1980s.
This daylily produces 5-inch-wide (13 cm) flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. The scapes rise from clumps of strap-like green leaves that die back over the winter. Each petal-like tepal is rich, eye-arresting red while the flower's throat is yellow-green. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning, but shrivels up before reaching 16-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.
