Stella De Oro Daylily
The Stella De Oro Daylily is popular for many good reasons, one being their beauty! This hearty perennial grows best in full sun, putting out more of the golden trumpet blooms, but will also survive in part sun. You could even enjoy them planted in containers, admiring their height and also the foliage that cascades over the sides.
I look forward to early spring when these bloom, getting me out of the rut of winter. They make me smile when I see them putting off buds, because I know that they are about to pop and keep going until late summer!
Pretty golden yellow flowers sit about 12-14″ high. The plants name truly means “Star of Gold” and I think I know why!
Coming back every year, these plants are super low maintenance and drought tolerant, which doesn’t mean that they don’t need to be watered in our long, hot Oklahoma summers.
To keep these babies blooming, you may need to deadhead if necessary, cutting the stem and all. But truth be told, I never do this and my day lilies are blooming all summer long!
This daylily has reached about maximum width for my liking, so I am going to split it up and replant both sections, giving me double the use from just one plant. This happens after about 3 years or so.
Splitting is fairly easy and can be done in early spring or fall, just before cutting them to the ground for winter (which, again, sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t, just depends). To split, dig them up carefully and cut the root ball in half with a shovel. Replant one section and find a new spot to admire its twin.
This is one of the many daylilies that we carry, but definitely our most popular!!
