Blooms are 5 1/2″ on scapes 22″ tall in our East Tennessee garden. An Early Season bloomer, we typically see the first of these gorgeous blooms around the first of June. If you are to our north, you’ll see them a few weeks after we do. If you live to our south, you’ll likely see them a bit before us. Fantastic rebloom means the lovely purple blooms of Always Afternoon will be seen off and on throughout the season.

A Semi-Evergreen daylily means that everyone can grow this beauty!

We love to see Always Afternoon paired with hot pink, orange, or bright yellow or gold daylilies. When paired with darker purple daylilies it absolutely pops!!

HOW TO GROW DAYLILIES: Daylilies are very easy-to-grow. They like a lot of sun and they like a lot of water. For more information on how to care for daylilies, click here.
WHAT DAYLILIES CAN I GROW: Most of you can grow any of the daylilies we sell. If you live in an area with a sustained cold period like we do in East Tennessee, you can grow all the varieties. However, If you live in an area that doesn’t get freezing weather in the winter (like zones 9 and 10), dormant varieties won’t work for you; you’ll need to choose evergreen or semi-evergreen varieties.

BIG PLANTS! When it comes to daylily plants, bigger is better! All of the plants we ship will be three fans or larger — two or three times (or more) what you might receive from other companies. Larger plants get established faster and bloom more quickly!

FARM-FRESH TO YOU! All of your plants will be freshly dug when you order. The leaves are trimmed and the plants are washed and air-dried. Your daylilies will be out of the ground less than 48 hours before they’re headed your way.

BONUS DAYLILIES: We send free daylilies (we call them “bonus” daylilies) with every order. These daylilies are equal to about 20% of your order and are the same huge, healthy plants we sell. Just leave the decision up to us and we’ll pick something you’re sure to love!

ABOUT US: Oakes Daylilies is a family-owned daylily farm that’s been in business for three generations. Our daylilies grow in home gardens, city parks and botanical gardens across the nation– including Hawaii and Canada. We are known in the industry as Daylily Experts and grow over 1000 varieties of daylilies on nearly 70 acres in East Tennessee. But over 50 years ago, we started just like you—with one daylily in a home garden.

    A great daylily,growers in the colder zones should not expect a lot of rebloom on most daylilies.I get some small amount of rebloom in zone 6b even without rebloom this daylily is worth growing.

    Compared to some of my other well established rebloomers, this lily’s rebloom is pitiful even though it is repeated several times through the summer. One bloom on second bloom period and a shortened height and life of bloom in the third bloom period. This plant was given the best soil location in our yard and yet, on year three, it is struggling to bloom again. Fertilizing seems to make no difference. Perhaps this mild winter will help this year in 2012 but we are without the usual snow cover that encourages new spring growth as it melts. As much as I hate snow…..Pray for more snow!!

    I have six or more plants of Always Afternoon in my garden. The beautiful mauve/purple blooms just makes me, well drool, when I look at them in full bloom. They have good size blooms, lots of them and bloom often during the season here in zone 6. I hope that you will give them a try and love them as much as I do.

    Excellent bloomer. Long initial bloom period, then a nice re-bloom. The color looks just like the photo. We like the large flowers on short scapes. Highly recommended.

    A beautiful daylily that can be recommended to gardeners just about everywhere. Cold-hardy and a vigorous grower here. Has a reputation for growing well in most climates. The flower color is sometimes lighter or darker than shown in the picture but is always attractive. Holds up well on hot & steamy, sunny midwestern afternoons. The scapes are short but display the flowers well, and there are plenty of them. A clump in bloom is a treasure. Ours usually produces some rebloom scapes after the first set has finished, for an even longer blooming period. This is one I rate as a “keeper” that likely will always be in our garden.
