El Desperado Daylily

Availability: Out of stock

Purple Accents Add Distinction

The Daylily El Desperado, Hemerocallis 'El Desperado' (Stamile, '91), has large, mustard yellow flowers with a bold and contrasting purple eye above a green throat with green foliage.

‘El Desperado’ is a popular daylily among daylily lovers!  It adds an extremely high bud count and an extended 16-hour bloom time that lets you enjoy blooms in the late afternoon and evening.

It will bloom early in the season and then repeat bloom late in the season.  It can survive harsh conditions that many other plants cannot and prefers full sun for the best performance.

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.

In areas that receive less than 6 hours of sun during the day, your daylilies will probably produce fewer and smaller blooms, and the foliage may not be as robust.

Use 'El Desperado' 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.

Because it blooms in late summer when other plants begin to lose their luster, ‘El Desperado’ is a tried-and-true first class performer that stands out in any landscape!
