Hyperion Daylily


Hyperion Daylily

Hemerocallis 30" tall.

On dense foggy mornings, bright clear Hyperion peers through the gloom with intensely fragrant 5" trumpet-shaped lemon-yellow flowers. Widely planted on old farmsteads in Maine, where it became popular in the 1920s. Famous for its heavenly scent, extended blooms—flowers stay open for nearly 16 hours—and ability to rebloom later in the season. Hyperion remains a favorite and is a must-have in the naturalized perennial border.

Midsummer blooms. Z2. (1-year field-grown rootstock with two fans)

Additional Information


Champion low-maintenance perennial produces a bush of narrow arched leaves topped with lily-shaped flowers from July to September. Hemerocallis means ‘beautiful day,’ referring to the fact that each flower lasts only a day, but since each scape (or stem) is covered with buds, bloom periods can be extensive and the long stems work well in bouquets. Trouble-free, chokes out weeds.

Flourishes under a wide range of conditions, from full sun to shade, wet to dry. Plant 12–18" apart in average soil; benefits from an annual shovelful or two of compost. Native to eastern Asia.

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. Store plants in their packaging in a cool (35–40°) location until you are ready to plant. If it’s going to be awhile, you can pot up your perennials.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
