The lavender-purple flowers of Purple D' Oro Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Purple D' Oro') attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, as well as second glances from the neighbors.

Love the carefree yellow Stella D' Oro Daylily that looks so good all growing season long? Well, this is a fabulous purple version of that famous plant. Purple D' Oro Daylily takes the charm of its sister, and adds a deep, delicious color on the petals.

They will be amazingly ornamental from late spring through fall. Just think of these as a plant version of the Energizer Bunny. Purple D' Oro Daylily is famous for its continuous blooms from May to October.

The luxurious blooms are reddish-purple in color and feature a slightly ruffled edge to the main petals. A bold yellow throat coordinates beautifully with its popular sunny sister, the yellow flowering Stella D' Oro. Why not add both to your planting plan?

The beautiful bladed leaves arch outward surrounding the stems rising out of the center of the plants. This plant is classified as a miniature, with the flowers rising above the compact mound of strappy green foliage.

Purple D' Oro is one of the easiest perennials to grow and is a marvelous choice for any garden. Order yours today from the expert growers of Nature Hills. How nice to receive your plants straight from the field directly to your door!

How to Use Purple D' Oro Daylily in the Landscape

There is nothing like a mass planting of Daylilies in bloom. Use a long ribbon of individual plants or use rows after row of them as a bedding plant to completely fill the interior of a garden bed.

Choose to run these graceful, easy-care plants along the edge of all your garden beds. Repeating the use of Purple D' Oro Daylily will tie together your entire landscape.

Don't forget to include a few in your large containers on the patio or porch. They also look marvelous as a low edging for walkways and around the mailbox.

The deeply colored flowers are restful, sophisticated, and you'll never grow tired of them. The plants stay compact and low. Even out of bloom, the strappy mounds of green foliage add an elegant look to your design. And you'll appreciate their carefree nature!

To create a continuous display, plant 2 feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one plant to the center of the next.

Pair with Stella D' Oro to create dynamic color patterns in the landscape. Bright yellow Stella D' Oro will coordinate beautifully with the yellow-throated Purple D' Oro. Both of these low growers look great when repeated in a mixed perennial garden. We recommend using at least 3 of each variety to create a big visual impact.

Add D' Oro as a Filler in large containers of mixed flowering plants for the patio or pool deck. Or, feature them by themselves in a series of smaller individual containers for continual summer color. Please ensure your pots have good drainage. Style them your way to personalize your landscape!

These rugged plants can handle themselves in rock gardens and make beautiful partners at the base of Ornamental Grasses. Add to commercial landscape projects to soften the forefront of the planting and add delicious color interest.

Did you know that the flowers of the Daylily are edible? All parts of the Daylily can be eaten. Add to your Kitchen Garden to jazz it up a little. Harvest the flower shoots when they first appear in the spring when they are tender. Chop them up and add to stir fry or pasta dishes. The flowers are also a popular, colorful addition to green salads. Amaze your guests!

#ProPlantTips for Care

The D' Oro series can survive harsh conditions that many other plants cannot. They require little maintenance throughout the year to keep performing their best. The plant prefers full sun with at least 8 hours of direct sunlight for the best performance. It might appreciate partial shade in the afternoon in the hottest summers.

Purple D' Oro is very tolerant of extreme heat and humidity. Just provide extra water when unexpected heat spikes occur. Mulch them in the hotter climates to cut down on evaporation and keep roots cool.

They will grow in almost any well-drained soil. They are adaptable and durable once established in your soil. After the first few seasons, they'll be able to handle limited exposure to drought, and even survive periodically wet soil conditions, if the drainage is good.

Spent blooms can be removed during the summer to keep the plants reblooming. In colder hardiness zones 4-8, the foliage of the semi evergreen Daylily may die back to the roots for winter and regrow from the crown in the spring.

For a low-maintenance, colorful garden, you can't go wrong with a D' Oro. Order your healthy Purple D' Oro Daylilies from Nature Hills today!
