Massive blooms 6 inches wide fill the sunny garden on this vigorous, color-saturated, absolutely beautiful Daylily! Sporting cerise-red tones, 'Cherokee Star' flowers throughout mid- to late season in border, meadow, and container, keeping the garden colorful with no labor on your part.

These flowers are richly painted, with a yellow-green throat that just intensifies the look of the intense deep red. Descended from 'Latin Passion' x 'Big Apple,' 'Cherokee Star' was introduced by Santa Lucia in 1995, and gardeners have never looked back.

If you're new to Daylilies, welcome to the easiest perennial in the garden! They love sun but tolerate a bit of shade, and they need well-draining soil. Other than that, all bets are off -- these powerhouses thrive despite heat, humidity, drought, cold, poor soil, and just about anything else. Pamper them the first season to get their root system established: plenty of water, rich soil, all the nice little touches -- and then let them go. The only thing you'll have to do is divide them every once in a while as they spread. (After a few years, they'll begin to lose bloom strength if they aren't divided.) Dividing them is as easy as a whack of the shovel, so that's no problem. Try Daylilies among your Daffodils -- they hide the dying foliage of the Daffodils and follow them in bloom, keeping the garden colorful for two seasons instead of just one. They are also nice friends to Bearded Iris, among many, many others.

'Cherokee Star' is going to sell out, so please order early! Zones 3-9.
