Common Name: Daylily
A twist on the old classic! ‘Double Pardon Me’ has the same color as its namesake but with dramatically more tepals. Instead of the standard amount of 6 tepals, according to the breeder, these flowers can have as many as 18 tepals. The unique look of this daylily will get you talking-it certainly did for us.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
Attracts bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Rabbit resistant.
