Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi' Daylily

Item #29251


This Daylily Has Sunfast Color

Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi' Daylily is a showy, semievergreen perennial blooming in midsummer. A dramatic, reblooming variety with a long bloom period, 'Bela Lugosi' produces 6-inch, trumpet-shaped, true purple flowers with a lime-green throat. The color is sunfast, unusual for a dark color. Each flower lasts one day, but each plant contains several long scapes with multiple buds that open in succession. So, it blooms for weeks, attracting butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.

A Hemerocallis hybrid, commonly called daylily, 'Bela Lugosi', an herbaceous plant, is a strong grower with a well-branched, mounding habit. This daylily is a tetraploid, with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants. The full, grass-like, deep green foliage lends texture and color to the garden, so the plant is attractive even out of bloom. Although it is an excellent specimen, suitable for a container, 'Bela Lugosi' shows to best effect when grown in masses in large areas or in groups in beds and borders. It's an excellent choice for erosion control. Blue oat grass, mums, and phlox are good companion plants for daylilies.

Cold hardy, easy to grow, and low maintenance, daylily grows best in sunny to dappled shade locations with deep, fertile, medium moist, well-draining loams. But it is extremely adaptable and grows well in a wide range of soils, including poor, dry, clay, chalk, and loamy soils. 'Bela Lugosi' is drought tolerant and rabbit, salt, pollution, and black walnut resistant.
