Trahlyta Daylily Features:

‘Trahlyta’ daylily is one of the coolest looking daylilies we sell. Large 6 1/2″ blooms are a dusky grey-violet around a wide purple eyezone  and gets noticed thanks to its color and impressive height (around 30″ tall in our East Tennessee garden). A very unique bloom that always gets noticed—and gets lots of comments!— in our display garden. Very photogenic, we see lots of this variety entered in our annual photo contest.  Quite stunning.

An early to mid season bloomer, we typically see Trahlyta first appear in early June. If you are to our north, you’ll likely see it a couple of weeks later. If you live to our south, you’ll get to see it a few weeks before we do. Good rebloom means you’ll get to see these gorgeous dusky blooms off and on throughout the season.

Trahlyta is a dormant daylily. This means it is best grown in gardens that get a sustained winter cold period, like those in zones 8 and lower.

A beauty on its own, this lovely daylily looks even more beautiful when planted with deep purple or bright yellow daylilies. Try it with bold orange or attention-getting near black daylilies for added pizzazz.

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, you get to choose what you’d like at checkout.

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.

    Eyezone pops!

    Mary

    Trahlyta is an eye catcher when next to yellows or light colors. It preforms well in full sun and clay soil. Does not fade in full sun and has a good amount of blooms each season. In my garden, this lily is not as tall as described, but no problem, just moved it closer to the front. 2 thumbs up from me.

  2. Just a beautiful Lily

    Carrie Meyers (verified owner)

    I bought this lily several years ago when we lived in Kentucky. She did beautiful there. We moved back to Iowa and I dug up half of her and brought her and many more of my Oaks day lilies. She had done so well here also. In KY she was more of a gray purple but here she is a vibrant purple. She is one of my favorite

    Trahlyta

    Susan Skelly (verified owner)

    Trahlyta is such an unusually beautiful daylily; with a color that is just not so easy to describe – When planted in a shadier location the colors will be more of a mauve purple. In a sunnier location the colors will be more of a violet purple. But either way, Trahlyta will surprise and delight you.

    "Love That Face"

    This daylily has a beautiful face and is so vigorous in my yard. Beautiful with yellows and darker purples!

    A disappointment. The colors looked muddled, the flowers were much smaller, only about 3″ and very sparse. It has been in the garden for two seasons and in a full sun location.

    Received my plants at the end of April and they are already blooming. Early in the morning the lilies are tri-colored much like the picture and then as the hot Texas sun shines on them they turn to the darker purple by afternoon. I’m amazed at at how many blooms they are producing so soon after planting.

    July 20, 2011 This is a gorgeous flower! This is the first year to bloom and I love the unusual coloring. It does look like the picture, but this summer has been very hot and humid in our area. The rating of 8 is because in the hot, humid, full sun days, it makes the coloring turn dark purple with a darker purple center and not the wine color. Looks just like any purple lily. I did have 1 bloom that was just like the picture and Yes, it was a 10. Hopefully next year will not be as hot and humid, so I can really enjoy the beauty of this day lily.

    This is a truly gorgeous daylily. The colors are so unusual — very rich, and each individual flower is large! The thing that impresses me the most though, is that three or four large flowers will be open on each scape at a time — and each plant has several scapes going at a time. The effect is a mass of beautiful smokey lavender/purple color with pops of yellow. We grow many daylily varieties in our garden and virtually no others grab your attention like Trahlyta!

    Second year in our garden and ‘Why did I wait so long?’. Such a gorgeous daylily and so prolific. We love this beauty.

    The petals are like pearlized steel. “Stunning” is so true. Very different and worth the price as it’s in a league all it’s own. Looks lovely picked and laying on a table for continual up close looks all day.

    I’ve had this in my garden for years, and this photo is more reddish-purple than the smoky-blue-gray edges that it actually has. Trahlyta is one of the most beautiful and unusual in my garden, and so much of a favorite it has front row placement so the colors can’t be missed. Outstanding.

    This is another favorite of mine. The thing I like about it is that it is not one of your average daylilies. The bloom is quite different, and adds a contrast to your daylily bed. Also, it is quite prolific.

    ‘Trahlyta’ has been a consistently reliable bloomer for me. The soft purple-grey colour mixes well with other flowers (especially lavender and artemisia) and it also divides like mad. A must for those who love purple!
