Fire King Daylily
Daylily Fire King, Hemerocallis 'Fire King', has bright, radiant orange, 5.5" ruffled petals with halos that are darker red-orange. 'Fire King' absolutely fits this flower's name!
The throats and stamens are a golden yellow-orange. Hemerocallis 'Fire King' has many buds that are produced on strong, straight, leafless flower stalks that will open in the evening for your next day's viewing pleasure. This extended bloom lets flowers last at least 16 hours each.
'Fire King' is considered a "Designer" daylily because it has been selected as a highly performing plant with exceptional bloom performance, substantive, vibrantly colored flowers, complete winter hardiness in northern zones, and a vigorous habit.
A dramatic improvement over older orange daylilies, this large flowered selection sets the garden ablaze with color. Daylilies are some of the easiest plants to grow and are a good choice for any gardener. They will grow in almost any soil and handle drought to wet soil conditions.
Use 'Fire King' for stand alone plantings, 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 including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
'Fire King' is an absolute “must have” in any garden!
