The Plants

Hemerocallis 'Pardon Me'


Photo of Hemerocallis 'Pardon Me'


A striking daylily producing fragrant wine-red, funnel-shaped flowers with yellow throats from mid-summer to early autumn. The Greek term 'hemerocallis' means 'beautiful for a day', and the prolific, lily-like flowers only last one day. Dead-head regularly to prolong flowering.

Care instructions

Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Snap off each flower as it fades. When the stem has finished flowering, cut it down to the ground. After the plant has finished flowering altogether, pull out the dead leaves. When the foliage is looking tatty, cut it down to the ground and fresh new growth will appear.
