General Description

Extra petals fill the center of the Yazoo Jim Terry daylily's flowers anytime from mid-spring to early summer, depending on climate. It's known to rebloom several weeks later, too. 'Yazoo Jim Terry' was released in 1992. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty.

The hybrid diploid ‘Yazoo Jim Terry' produces 6-inch-wide (15 cm) flowers atop a branching naked stem called a scape. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy deep green leaves that remain partially evergreen over the winter months. The numerous petal-like tepals are variable rose and light pink, but their bases are lemon yellow to lime green. Tepal edges are attractively ruffled or wavy. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but shrivels up once between 16- to 24-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.

Enjoy this tried-and-true herbaceous ornamental in mixed beds and borders, containers and large mass plantings.
