HEMEROCALLIS 'Stella De Oro'
Daylily, Stella De Oro Daylily
The ever-popular Stella de Oro daylily is an everblooming, dwarf perennial developed by Walter Jablonski in 1975. Neat clumps of bright green strap-like leaves appear in mid spring. Its single, lily-like flowers of gold first appear in late spring atop leafless stems. These are mildly fragrant and attractive to many pollinators.
Daylily is easy to grow if provided with full to part sun and fertile to average, well drained soil. Its clumps slowly spread over time and need to be divided ever two to three years. When foliage begins to look shabby, it is wise to shear it back to allow for a fresh flush of growth. Enjoy the heavily blooming 'Stella de Oro' in mixed beds and borders, containers and large mass plantings.
This cultivar must have ample winter cold in order to prosper as a perennial. In warmer areas of USDA cold hardiness zone 8 and 9 the Stella de Oro daylily will deteriorate. For a similiar daylily effect that is well-suited for milder winters, seek out the cultivars 'Sun Locket' and 'Black-eyed Stella'.
