Hemerocallis Pink Damask

GardenAward

Daylily

Perfect for a sunny spot

An old variety which is still deservedly popular today. Lily shaped flowers are terracotta pink with a yellow throat and appear for weeks in midsummer.

Where?

Happiest in full sun where the plant will make a large clump over time.

How?

Best in a moist but well drained soil. Enrich the soil with organic matter before planting - homemade compost or well rotted manure is fine. Remove faded flower spikes through the summer to encourage more blooms and cut back to the ground in spring once new leaves are spotted.

This beautiful variety of Day Lily has been given an Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
