PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
Hemerocallis 'Night Beacon'
Night Beacon has an extremely unique color combination on its rather large 4" diameter blooms - a very dark purple / wine color.....so dark that it almost looks black at times.....contrasted by a neon bright chartreuse eye & throat. The two colors are on complete opposite ends of the color spectrum, yet work beautifully together on this easy to grow Daylily variety.
Blooms start in early summer, and extend all the way through till very early fall in most climates. This variety is an excellent re-bloomer, meaning that it is known to produce several "waves" of blooms throughout the summer months, rather then just one heavy bloom period in early summer. Re-blooming can be further increased & encouraged through the removal of old, expired blooms & stalks ( scapes ).
Foliage is evergreen in most climates, but will tend to look rather ragged & tattered in very cold climates. We actually suggest trimming, or "mowing" the foliage back to a height of about 5 or 6 inches at the end of the fall season. This way, the foliage can have a fresh, new start when spring rolls around, and will look its absolute best all season long.
Night Beacon is one of the more recent additions to our Daylily category - we simply couldn't resist the very unique color combination seen with this variety. Makes a wonderful, eye popping low growing ground covering or foreground planting.

- 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance
Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend
for use with all of our daylily varieties. However, either water soluble ( Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6-12-12, or 10-10-10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting.
may be used at anytime.
