    What a blooming powerhouse Pygmy Plum is! I’ve had Pygmy Plum growing in my garden for a few years now – and it just keeps getting better and better. Pygmy Plum blooms later here in my zone 4 garden – blooming right into early September! And what’s not to love about a daylily that not only is a deep black-plum purple color, is covered with buds and blooms, but also extends the daylily season as well… The only down-side to this daylily is it’s name – unfortunately I’ve seen/heard many a Pygmy Plum admirer do a double-take when they learn the name…Which is unfortunate of course. If you can get past the name, you will find that Pygmy Plum is well worth the investment, and it will reward you with abundant blooms – and a long blooming season.

    This is my 2nd year with Pygmy Plum. I planted 3 last year in a new bed bed (with admittedly marginal sun – some high shade and 4 hours of morning sun). I shares the bed with 3 “Twiggy” – (my new favorite daylily of some 400) and she was vigorous and long blooming first year and this year. Pygmy Plum produced 1-2 scapes per plant first year, but, only one bloomed with a single scape.. The other two produced quite vigorous foliage, but not a single scape. The Feather Reed Grass in this bed was beautiful. This is a gorgeous daylily, and though I’m not giving up, I would call it “touchy” I’ll give it another year and if it doesn’t perform, I’ll move it – though I hate to because it is perfect with Twiggy in this bed. Maybe its the bumper crop of chipmunks that arrived with the mild winter and early spring! Could be they tunneled into that new, rich soil and have been snacking on the scapes as they tried to come up. I would give it a 9 because it is a beautiful color and form, but I’m giving it a 7 for poor 2nd year performance.

    This along with Vintage Bordeaux are the two best daylilies I have ever purchased. If you like really rich velvety color and texture you need to get these. I have thousands of daylilies and these two stood out more than any others. I will be buying more.

    Pygmy plum holds its color in direct sun. It just bloomed yesterday and has lots of scapes. Looks beautiful next to chartruese dwarf bamboos.
