Daylily - Strawberry Candy
Pink, Red, and Ruffles
The Hemerocallis ‘Strawberry Candy’, also known as a Daylily, has a wonderful color of a strawberry-pink blend with a rosy-red eye zone, a golden green throat, and ruffled edges.
It has a flower size of 4.5”, and its dark green foliage will reach a height of 26” and a plant spread of 12-24”.
It won the Stout Silver Medal in 1998, the Award of Merit in 1996 and Honorable Mention in 1993; one can see why!
‘Strawberry Candy’ will bloom from May through July, with outstanding color and is a definite rebloomer.
‘Strawberry Candy’ prefers a full sun area that is well-drained.
Although the blooms will last only for one day, there are many blooms on strong stems that rise above tall grassy foliage.
Remove dead foliage in late fall.
‘Strawberry Candy’ attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. It is considered to be pest and deer resistant.
Use ‘Strawberry Candy’ for cut flowers, massing, edging, in borders or in mixed containers and tubs.
Planted together in large numbers, they quickly crowd out weeds and make a carefree and colorful ground cover.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot. This includes city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
‘Strawberry Candy’ is one of the best daylilies you can have in your garden!
