Purdy Rich Daylily

* 6″ bloom, 29″ tall, Mid Season, Dormant
‘Purdy Rich’ daylily is what Ken Oakes calls a “fancy type.” We can’t disagree: Large, pinkish-lavender blooms have a heavy gold edge and make quite a statement in the garden. Even though Ken calls it “fancy” it is as low maintenance as all daylilies. It opens easily, which isn’t always the case for those with a thick ruffled edge, and is a reliable bloomer. It has become a new favorite of not just Ken’s, but many of us here at Oakes Daylilies. A sophisticated addition to the mid-summer garden.

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!
