Like most smoothies, Rainbow Rhythm® Orange Smoothie Daylily (Hemerocallis RAINBOW RHYTHM® 'Orange Smoothie') is comprised of many different pieces that come together to create the most perfect whole!
The show starts in the spring, when deep green foliage burst from the ground to meet the newly changed season. Of course, that's not what you're waiting for. You're waiting, ever so patiently, for the blooms.
Oh, and aren't they worth waiting for! During the summer months, the most intricately colored flowers will flourish. Each petal starts out light green in the center before fading to yellow, rose, and finally finishing a light peach color near the edges.
Rainbow Rhythm is right, that's more than half of ROYGBIV on a single flower! You can enjoy the stunning flowers over and over as Orange Smoothie is a rebloomer!
The neighborhood will watch in awe as you have a fresh set of flowers day after day. They won't be the only ones either. Butterflies will flock from near and far for a chance at some nectar.
Daylilies are a great choice if you're in an urban setting. They're fairly tolerant of polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, and that persistent winter salting.
Orange Smoothie is brought to you by the same hybridizers as Going Bananas, so you can be assured this flower will not disappoint!
As if that weren't enough credibility, this perennial is part of the Premium Daylilies club. This means it's been selected as a high performing plant for having incredible blooms, vibrant colors, and impressive winter hardiness!
Should their gorgeous blooms not be enough to lift your eyebrows, one whiff certainly will be. Orange Smoothie is delightfully fragrant.
The reasons to include this pretty and prestigious perennial are extensive. Don't wait, order a Rainbow Rhythm® Orange Smoothie Daylily for your garden today!
This flower's orange mango petals with a light rose band makes fantastic floral arrangements for your dining room table or kitchen counter. Before picking though, you'll want the perfect spot to plant in the garden.
Daylillies are often used as mass plantings due because the more planted close together, the more dramatic the overall effect!
Orange Smoothie looks fantastic all on its own too. Plant it as an accent in your perennial garden or as a spunky focal point in your pollinator plant section. Its midsized growing habit makes sit great to use as a middle row planting.
Due to its salt-tolerant nature, many people like to use daylilies by their driveways and roads. They create a lovely and colorful border and you won't have to worry about damaging them when winter comes.
Cottage gardens are another area where Orange Smoothie excels. It's quirky enough to fit right into a garden where uniqueness and quality are kings.
Plant it in places that could use an injection of life and vibrant chromatic come fall. This perennial won't just bloom in the summer, it'll rebloom as the season changes as well!
One thing is for sure, no matter where you plant Orange Smoothie, it'll draw eyes and drop jaws of all who come across it!
Daylillies, especially Premium Daylilies, just about take care of themselves. You might think that's an exaggeration but it's not!
Almost nothing bothers Orange Smoothie! Not the cold, winter salt, juglone, or even slopes will slow this show-pony perennial down.
When planting, try to find a spot in full sun to let it soak in the rays all day long. Well drained soils are also a plus but that's just about it. This daylily will thrive in places many other perennials would struggle.
If you'd like, consider adding a layer of mulch around the base. This helps conserve water and keeps the roots cool. As an added bonus, mulch usually helps keep the weeds down and the overall aesthetic of the garden up.
Deadheading isn't necessary as this perennial will do just fine on its own. Once that first round of flowers are done, you can really clean up the look of your planting by removing those flowering stems that are done blooming and at the same time encourage the new flowering stems to develop sooner.
But if you'd like to give a quick cut then wait until late autumn, after it's done blooming for the year and frost killed off your foliage, grab your shears, and give it a trim.
Even those with self-proclaimed brown thumbs can have a thriving garden with Orange Smoothie Daylily. Order yours today from our expert growers at Nature Hills Nursery!
