Hemerocallis 'Pardon Me'

Hemerocallis 'Pardon Me'

Common name daylily
Family hemerocallidaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers red (July)
Size 18"
Light sun-part shade

One of the tried and true daylilies (it was introduced in 1982), 'Pardon Me' is known as a rebloomer. It may do so sporadically, but at least in our garden it mostly focuses on its main period of bloom, in mid-July, when the deep red flowers with greenish yellow eye start appearing – in a good year, they come in great numbers, which makes up for their relatively small size. For some reason, it took our original plant two years before it decided to bloom, and wasn't all that enthusiastic for several additional years. But happily, it has forgotten about its reluctance by now.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
