The Roger de Longchamp daylily boasts creamy yellow flowers with lime green throats. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. In very early summer, the hybrid tetraploid ‘Roger de Longchamp' produces flowers atop a naked stem called a scape. The six round, petal-like tepals are pale lemon yellow with tiny-ruffled margins. Blossom diameters approach 6 inches (15 cm). The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that die away in the frosts of autumn. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up by before it's 24-hours old. 'Roger de Longchamp' was bred by Steve Moldovan and introduced in 2005.
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.
