Hemerocallis, also known as daylilies, make wonderful garden plants. They are easy to grow and maintain, providing fresh green foliage from as early as February and flowering throughout June, July and August. Woottens of Wenhaston has been growing Hemerocallis since 2004 and now houses one of the biggest collections in the UK comprising over 600 different varieties. For spring 2020 the nursery has put together these special selections especially for Gardens Illustrated readers, offering both reliable colour and plants of particular interest.
Plants are field grown and lifted as needed throughout the year allowing them to be planted all year round, although Woottens recommends that the prime times are in spring and autumn.
