Buy Hemerocallis 'Fragrant Returns' daylily Fragrant Returns: Scented flowers throughout summer

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This easy and adaptable perennial offers a succession of large pale lemon trumpets throughout the summer. Each one of these blooms can grow up to 8cm across, so they are really very showy - and they also have a sweet perfume. Their compact habit makes them ideal for pots, rockeries and filling gaps at the front of a sunny border.

  • Garden care: The Greek term 'hemerocallis' means 'beautiful for a day', and daylilies need regular deadheading to prolong flowering and prevent their unsightly deadheads from dominating the scene. Each stem carries several flowers, so snap off each flower as it fades. When the stem has finished flowering, cut it down to the ground. After the plant has finished flowering altogether, pull out the dead leaves. When the foliage is looking tatty, cut it down to the ground and fresh new growth will appear. Lift and divide every three years in spring to keep the rhizomes vigorous and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Water frequently from spring until the buds appear.
