Get Ready for the Alabama Jubilee!

Scintillating Color All Summer Long
Heat up your summer garden with this high-performing hemerocallis. The blooms are huge, brilliantly colored, and appear all summer long on vigorous plants that go totally dormant in winter, making them successful in northern gardens where semi-evergreen daylilies often struggle with rot. Feature 'Alabama Jubilee' in your sunny border, foundation, meadow, or driveway garden this season, and watch how it outperforms nearly every other plant in the vicinity!

The colorful, thick-petaled blooms are excellent in the vase, adding an exciting dash of fiery orange that will last for several weeks. And these cutflower-quality blooms are also a boon in the landscape, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to sip at their nectar all summer long.

'Alabama Jubilee' is a tetraploid, meaning it has twice the chromosomes of traditional (diploid) daylilies. This is significant for several reasons. First, it gives the plant greater vigor, resulting in larger, brighter, more substantial blooms that repeat in late summer after a heavy early season flush. Second, it increases the growth potential of the plant, helping it stand up to adversity and send out new flowering stems quicker than older varieties. Third, it takes off more quickly in spring and then goes totally dormant in winter, making maintenance a breeze!

Thriving even in intense heat and humidity, 'Alabama Jubilee' blooms reliably every summer from July to August. The sizzling scarlet-and-orange blooms are the perfect warm accent for a summer garden. While this radiant daylily does well in the sunny or partly-shaded garden bed, you will probably want to feature it in your front yard, where its glory can be put on full display!

'Alabama Jubilee' reaches up to 30 inches tall and 24 inches wide with very little help. All it needs is watering the first season or two to get its root system established. Like all tetraploid daylilies, it withstands cold, heat, humidity, and drought without turning a leaf. Deer leave it alone. Other pests and diseases seldom trouble it. All it asks is good soil drainage and plenty of sunshine! Zones 3 to 9.
