Sombrero Way Daylily
The Daylily Sombrero Way, Hemerocallis 'Sombrero Way', is fast becoming one of the most popular daylilies for gardeners! It produces large clumps of long grass-like leaves with showy clusters of ruffled, rich orange lily-like blooms on tall stems.
It is hard to find a good quality daylily with a nice, solid orange color, but that's what ‘Sombrero Way’ provides! This mid-summer bloomer is ideal for the middle to back of a border plant because it will grow 2’ tall and as wide.
The grass-like foliage is attractive all season long, and it will be back again every year with only minimal winter protection.
Try 'Sombrero Way' in mixed beds and borders, containers and large mass plantings. Plant as a ground cover on slopes, where they form a dense mat in just a few years.; attracts butterflies.
This daylily is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season.
Divide 'Sombrero Way' every 3-5 years, or when the number of flower buds and the size of bloom begin to decline. Deadheading spent buds and removing old scapes will improve overall look, but not improve plant performance.
Individual flowers last only one day, but since each plant produces many buds, the total blooming time of a well-established clump may last more than a month.
'Sombrero Way' flourishes in northern regions because it thrives with minimal attention and care. The most inept gardener couldn't stop these beauties from brightening up his or her garden!
