Comments about High Country Gardens Reblooming Daylily Purple D'Oro:
I planted last fall as barefoot plants, and already in mid June this year, blooms started (in contrast to many other daylily varieties which wait a year or so before blooming)!
The bloom sequence lasted for over a month, and could likely be longer next year, and will almost certainly be more robust with each passing year.
I watered during dry spells, and mulched with a few dry tree leaves. I also snapped off each bloom as it faded. That was about it for special care for these hardy plants!
My only note to consider if you are picky about exact colors, is that these turned out SIGNIFICANTLY more red-burgundy and less true purple than shown. The current description even goes so far as to describe them as lavender purple, which is grossly inaccurate if lavender is considered a blue-tinted and/or pastel purple.
I have included an unedited, accurate photo of the actual color of the blooms that these wonderful plants produced.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
