Auburn and gold, the Proven Winners® Rainbow Rhythm® Ruby Spider Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruby Spider') is one variety of Daylily you just have to have in your garden! It will be a showstopper with immense 9-inch spider-style flowers that are pure, saturated deep-auburn red with a golden-yellow throat and midribs! Being a truly extraordinary form of Daylily, its large petals are long and spoon-shaped.

Multiple buds sprout in turn, lasting just a day each, atop their sturdy scapes. Pollinators flock to these lofty landing pads and you'll even be enchanted by the occasional Hummingbird as well! Backed by a fountain of grassy green foliage that arches and cascades around the stems like pretty fringe, Ruby Spider grows 34 inches tall and can spread up to 18 - 24 inches wide at maturity.

Ruby Spider is an herbaceous perennial (dormant tetraploid) which means its foliage dies back in winter, only to pop back in the spring bigger and better! This is an important consideration for cold climate gardeners since this variety is a great choice for the far northern growing zones of USDA growing zones 3 to 9!

Planting and Application:

Individual flowers of the Ruby Spider Daylily may last only one day, but since each plant produces many buds, the total blooming time of a well-established clump may last more than a month! Allowing you to utilize Ruby Spider for spectacular groupings of color in shrub borders, pollinator gardens, and in perennial beds! They're also fantastic to include in your Xeric and Fire-Wise landscaping plans!

Use the Ruby Spider as a marvelous specimen plant, or it can make a grand statement when planted in masses. Once established, the Ruby Spider can be an excellent groundcover on slopes because it has roots that hold soil in place, preventing erosion. These are tough plants that are so much more than a pretty face! Tolerating drought, salt spray, poor soil, and deer without being fazed in the slightest!

Where Daylily really excels is as edging and facer plants, fringing walkways, defining garden edges, and filling in between larger plants and perennials! They are fantastic thrillers in containers and planters on hot poolside decks, porches, patios and balconies, and add that special something to any sun garden!

  • Large Spider-Type Spoon-Shaped Auburn Red Petals
  • Fragrant Golden Throats & Midribs
  • Tall Scapes & Fountains of Arching Grassy Green Leaves
  • Great For Xeric & Fire-Wise Landscaping
  • Hummingbird & Pollinator Friendly
  • Fantastic Container Accent, Specimens, En Masse & Erosion Control

#ProPlantTips for Care:

This easy-to-grow perennial is widely adaptable to different soil types, this variety prefers full sun situations, tolerating a bit of afternoon/partial sun locations in the hotter of its favored hardiness 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. It's recommended to divide the clumps every 3-5 years, or when the number of flower buds and the size of the blooms begin to decline.

  • Maintenance Free in Full Sun
  • 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
