The Happy Returns Daylily is one of the very best repeat-blooming daylilies, starting as early as May and continuing in three big waves of blooming all the way into the fall. It stands about 18 inches tall, spreading about 2 feet, with many flower stems carrying an abundance of blooms. The butter-yellow blooms are a full 3 inches across and stay open from dawn right into the night. The perfect choice for filling all those difficult spots in your garden, like dry areas, slopes, beneath walnut trees and where there is salt runoff.

  • Canary-yellow blooms from May until frost
  • Never-ending blooms on a compact, bushy plant
  • Thrives in cold, drought, heat and poor soil
  • Dense mound of weed-fighting foliage
  • Perfect for filling difficult spaces

Full sun suits the Happy Returns Daylily best, but it will take a little afternoon shade, especially in hot zones. It grows all the way from icy zone 3 to balmy zone 9 without trouble, in heat and humidity as well as cold and rain. It grows in just about any well-drained soil, including heavy clay, urban soils and poor soil. Once established it’s very drought resistant, and untouched by pests, diseases or rabbits. Removing spent flower stalks and cutting back in fall is all the care it needs.
