5 1/2″ bloom, 30″ tall, Mid Season + rebloom, Dormant

‘South Seas’ daylily commands attention. Nicely shaped 5 1/2″ blooms are coral with a coral band and lightly ruffled edges. Something about this unique color makes it appear to glow in the garden. Not only beautiful, but a great bloomer and rebloomer, too. Fragrant.

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.

  1. Bright and fantastic bloomer!

    Brant Mauthe

    I got this from Oaks years ago and all of their daylilies are strong healthy plants. It has grown well and blooms well with spectacular color in hot or cool weather (we seem to get all the extremes here in zone 8a Dallas, TX lately). I have even crossed it with other daylilies and it shares its strength and color well. Like Alabama Jubilee, neighbors will walk a block or more to tell me it is one of their favorites! It’s one of mine too.

    Gorgeous and love the rebloom!

    hemilyday

    It is September 9 and South Seas is the only Daylily still blooming in my Atlanta, GA garden. I have 12 blooms on South Seas still to open! I highly recommend it! (I have 25-30 daylilies in my garden and I love them all, but South Seas is special!)

    Stunning Variety

    Statesboro, GA

    South Seas is one of my very favorites. It really puts on a show, even here in zone 8b with hot, humid summers and clay soil. It has rapidly increased in size, blooms profusely, and by the second year showed off an impressive rebloom. The color is dazzling. Love it!

    The color of South Seas is very rich and vibrant. Definitely has a Tropical vibe. The first year the blooms were large and plentiful. It is planted in full sun and the color stays true. I cannot recommend South Seas high enough!!

    South Seas is Breath taking!! God sure knew what He was doing when He created this plant…beautiful mid-sized blooms in a pretty orange-coral color…I have one of these, and last year it was COVERED with at least 20-25 blooms at a time! Stunning and is a nice size…Love it! Worth the money.

    I bought one of these based on the review by the gal in Manhattan Beach, CA (2008). First year it did bloom but there were only a couple fans since it was new. This is it’s second or third year here now. It has multiplied very quickly and has 11 very thick strong scapes and is blooming its head off. The other reviewers are correct; I grow close to 250 different daylilies and this color is absolutely unique. And it does tend to “glow”. Good growth habit, fast multiplier, beautiful color, blooms well above foliage (pretty tall), every bloom is perfect – can’t beat a combo like that. We are zone 7 and it’s a winner! I’m ordering three more plants of this for fall delivery. A true “must have”.

    The photo does not do justice to the fabulous color of this bloom. The rosy/orange color is very bright, almost flourescent, and doesn’t fade. This one is a knockout, especially from a distance.

    My favorite. Though planted late last fall, I already have 2 scapes. Stunning coral/tangerine color (think of a lighter version of “blood orange”). Color does not radically fade over the life of bloom (which is lengthy). Note: I live in zone 10 (Sunset Western Gardening Book zone 24) so though the plant is receiving full sun, it is seldom over 80. I bought more than one of these plants and the ones that are in shadier areas have not bloomed (yet).

    Great color & substance, bloomed the fist year with many flowers of big heavy petals. The picture is very true to acctuall color. I gave it a 10 because this is one of my favorite colors and it’s preformance was great. I would buy this one again in a heartbeat. Can’t wait for it to bloom again this year. It will find a home in more than one place in my yard
