Hemerocallis 'Little Gypsy Vagabond'

Overall Description

A newer addition to our growing selections of Daylilies, Little Gypsy Vagabond is a hybrid daylily that has actually been around for quite some time ( hybridized back in 1979 ). It is a proven performer that offers nice 3" blooms that are a pale creamy yellow color, with a purple eye zone, and lime green throat. Little Gypsy Vagabond is a early to mid season bloomer - mid May thru mid June being their peak here in East TN. Known to be a great re-bloomer, Little Gypsy Vagabond will provide plenty of color & contrast throughout the entire season......just not as heavy as during their normal peak blooming time.

Foliage is semi-evergreen in warmer climates, but will look rather rough during the winter months.........and will go completely dormant in colder climates. We actually suggest trimming, or "mowing" the foliage back to a height of about 3 or 4 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.

This variety makes a great foreground planting, and provides a splash of lighter colors. Carefree, low maintenance, and easy to grow. We highly recommend giving this little powerhouse of a daylily some serious consideration.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
