Back Draft Daylily Features:
Not for the faint of heart! Brilliant orange blooms with a vivid red eyezone are a huge 6″ and grow sturdy on scapes around 27″ tall in our East Tennessee garden. Everyone wants to know what these are and what they’re called. They can—and will (read the reviews!)— stop traffic! Back Draft is a prolific bloomer so get ready for a bloom show!
Speaking of blooms… they are big and bold and simply gorgeous— especially when planted en masse. We also love them when paired with purple or lavender daylilies or you can plant it with other red daylilies to crank that heat up even higher!
A mid-to late season daylily, we usually see Back Draft around mid June to early July in our East Tennessee garden. If you are to the north of us, you’ll see them a bit later. If you are to our south, you’ll see them a couple of weeks before we do.
Back Draft is a dormant daylily which means it grows best in planting zones that get a sustained cold period in the winter.
Back Draft is part of our The Eyes Have It collection. If you love eyed daylilies, you need this collection!

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!
