A mini version of America's favorite Daylily!

Stella de Oro is the bestselling Daylily in America! It works hard and makes a gardener look good without any fuss. So, when we heard that there was a miniature version of this beloved plant we knew that we needed to have it so we could offer it to you!

Mini Stella (Hemerocallis 'Mini Stella') has the same sunny yellow trumpet-shaped flowers, the same fragrance, the same spring-green grassy leaves, the same months upon months of hot color in your garden - but at half the size! The flowers are only 1 inch and the plant gets less than a foot high, but the flower power is amazing! Much to the delight of every native bee and pollinator in your garden!

The flushes of blooms start in the spring and then repeat all summer and into the fall. The blooms are lavish and continue for several weeks or more on each plant! Hardy like its perennial big sister, Mini Stella thrives throughout USDA growing zones 3 to 9, tolerating both cold winters and hot summers with ease!

Planting and Application:

Mini Stella is a phenomenal container plant! Brighten seating areas around the pool deck or patio, grace your front entry urns, or plant them in containers on a balcony or in a window box! These space-saving lovelies will love shining in the sun no matter how much room you have for them to spread.

Use Mini Stella in rows, groupings, and en masse, alone or with its big sister in a perennial border, in front of shrubbery, as an edging along a walk or rock wall! Daylilies are must-haves for Perennial and Cottage borders, and in your bulb beds, where they hide the aging foliage of spring ephemerals like Tulips and Daffodils.

The cheerful color bedecks some of the harshest conditions your landscape has to offer! From the hell strip along the road and the sidewalk, to driveways and paths, to hillsides that are hard to mow and eroding, to Rock Gardens! And they look great doing it! They're also fantastic to include in your Xeric and Fire-Wise landscaping plans!

  • Bright Miniature Yellow Trumpets
  • Under A Foot Tall
  • Compact Clumps of Grassy Green Foliage
  • Fragrant, Pollinator Friendly & Great in Containers

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Trouble-free and maintenance-free perennials, they tolerate most soils and conditions if they get at least 6 hours of sun and some partial shade in the afternoons of its hotter growing zones. Plant in mulched garden beds with 3-4 inches of arborist bark chips and enriched well-drained soil for best results. Provide new plants with moderate moisture on a regular basis, but once established, Daylilies are drought and occasionally soggy soil adaptable.

Deadhead to encourage rebloom, then trim the entire scape to the crown of the plant once all the buds are spent to clean up the mound. In late autumn after frost, remove all foliage to the ground and dispose of it away from the site to prevent rusts and diseases from overwintering. Divide the clumps only every 10-15 years compared to full-sized Daylilies that may need to be divided every few years.

  • Trouble-Free & Tolerant In Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Adaptable in Any Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture - Low Once Established
  • Prune Late Fall, Deadhead Regularly & Divide Every 3-5 Years
  • Seldom Bothered By Deer, Rabbits, Salt & Pests
