Hemerocallis “Stella de Oro”

Seen here in the early evening , Stella de Oro has a delicious, buttery glow to it that lights up the front of a sunny border.  Growing to a mere 40cm or so in height, it is one of the shorter Hemerocallis available making it particularly suitable for small spaces. Given plenty of water and a nutritious soil it performs well in full sun or partial shade, though the shadier the situation, the fewer flowers will be produced.

In my garden it’s a trouble-free “do-er” that I’ve grown in quite a number of locations, usually taking the opportunity to split clumps and increase my stock whenever I’ve moved it.
