Home :: Daylilies :: Daylily 'Purple de Oro'

Sorry, we are only shipping hostas and daylilies at the moment. The website will be updated for a select number of perennials in mid to late September for shipping the week of 9/23 and we will post a message when the inventory is updated. We can ship hostas and daylilies now, and orders for those are being processed within 7 days.

The nursery will be closing for good on October 12th and this will be our last year in operation.  We have not put anything into production so our fall inventory will be very limited. We are sorry for the disappointment however we thank you for your years of support.

Daylily 'Purple de Oro'

(DeGroot 2000)

Reddish-purple blooms have a yellow-orange throat and orange backs, held well above the foliage on 24” scapes. It is a very reliable rebloomer with its first flush in early summer then repeating on and off into fall.

Sadly we have seen several different daylilies being sold as 'Purple De Oro' and honestly it is difficult to tell which is really supposed to be correct.  We know that the light purple version is not correct but there are two other variations out there.  One is a reddish purple like we sell and the other is more a basic purple color.  The only reason we believe these reddish-purple plants are correct is that these are from the original batch released over a decade ago and we received this color on multiple occasions.  Later as we purchased different batches the colors started to vary and we sold them as unknowns.  This reddish-purple version is the best rebloomer of the batches.

Height: 16" Bloom Size: 3"
Bloom Time: Mid, Late Foliage: Dormant
Dip/Tet: Diploid Extras: Rebloom

    I have had several clumps of this day lily in my rock garden for years and I just love them! Easy to grow in full sun and they are such beautiful colors.
