Dramatic 2-3" dark purple blooms have yellow and green throats. They bloom first in early to midsummer and then produce a second wave of blooms in the fall. Same dwarf habit as Stella de Oro but with a beautiful dusty lavender shade.

Able to plant anytime the ground is workable. At least one month before a severe freeze going into winter.Adaptable to most soils except water-logged heavy soils. Partial Shade/Full Sun

Maintenance

Remove spent flower stems low to the base to encourage repeat blooms

Practical Use

At 15-20" tall, these hardy reblooming daylilies are perfect for edging borders and walkways as well as for patio containers due to their compact growth habit. Purple d'Oro looks best when planted in clusters.
