PLANT DESCRIPTIONS & FACTS
Hemerocallis 'Red Rum'
Red Rum is another compact daylily selection we have decided to grow & offer in our growing list of daylily varieties. Red Rum provides an extremely high bud count, and tons of bright cherry red blooms throughout the late spring & summer season. Cherry red blooms are approx 4" in diameter, and are accented by a pale yellow mid rib on each petal, and a nice bright lime green throat.
Blooms start in late spring, 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 semi-evergreen in most all climates - will tend to keep some foliage through the winter in warmer climates, while many times going completely dormant in areas that are on the colder end of this varieties' hardiness range.. 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.
Red Rum is an excellent daylily choice for tons of bright color in areas where there is not enough room for the height of taller, more full sizes varieties. Great as a foreground planting, or low growing border / accents.

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.
