Grown mostly for it's lush white variegated foliage this form will also produce double, burnt orange flowers sporadically in summer to 1.2m. Good soil in part shade is ideal.
Although Hemerocallis fulva is a spreading type of daylily this variegated form is much slower and not a trouble in most situations. Occasional all-white shoots are produced which can be removed as they won't thrive. Green reversions do happen but are pretty rare, the amount of white on each shoot does vary, don't worry if there is only a thin line as the next shoot might be mostly white.
I believe this originally came from Japan where other variegated forms are also grown.
Hemerocallis 'Catherine Woodbery'£6.50
A favourite variety with elegant flowers of a pinkish lilac. Happy on most soils in sun. 90cm.
Hemerocallis 'Crimson Pirate'£5.50
A spider type with long narrow petals of a rich crimson red. 75cm. Good soil in sun.
Stunning terracotta flowers on this American Louisiana iris. Best in a warm site with good rich soil. Not the easiest to flower well in the UK but well worth trying! 60cm.
