    • Widely Adaptable

    Bela Lugosi Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi'), is a Designer Daylily™ with 6" flowers that are a deep true purple with a vivid lime green throat. Recipient of the American Hemerocallis Society's Honorable Mention in 1998 and Award of Merit in 2001.

    One of the best purple daylilies on the market! The flowers are very sunfast for such a dark color. You will not catch this flower fading!

    An excellent grower that boasts lots of buds and wonderful branching. An absolute must have for a Daylily garden!

    'Bela Lugosi' is considered a "Designer" Daylily, which means that 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.

    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 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).

    You will enjoy watching the hummingbirds as they visit this stunning deep purple daylily. Order yours today at Nature Hills.
