 Beautiful Orange Day Lilys are super easy to grow, even for someone without a green thumb, no joke! Anyone can really grow a daylily! They grow star-shaped 6 petal orange-colored flowers that will grow on stems that range from 3-to 6' feet tall. These are typically one of the first plants you will see emerging in the spring from the ground. Daylilies die to the ground every year, but they are perennial, so they then grow back fully every spring, but they grow big and fast by the second or third year of being planted. They can grow in nearly any kind of soil and has very few problems with pests. Some call these orange daylilies a ditch lily because over time they can get larger and spread. They can be found planted by the hundreds growing along the ditches in the countryside here in Missouri. They are so nice to see every spring when they bloom. There are many different varieties of daylilies out there now, but this is considered to be the original daylily! This daylily is super hardy from zone 2 - 9, which is pretty well all of the United States! They are known to attract hummingbirds, work great for mass plantings, are low maintenance, attract butterflies, are good for erosion control, and grow well in full sun to half shade.

Sizing can vary, but the average height of the plant will vary. Plants (perennials) such as this one grow all new foliage every year so these are not judged on how tall they are when shipped, instead, they are judged solely on how big the roots are based upon the size of the pot they are growing in. The larger the root ball, the larger the plant will be right from the start. 

Quart pots will contain at least 1 rhizome with a shoot, Gallon pots typically contain 2 or more with a larger root system from growing in a larger pot. There will not be any flowers growing when you receive your plant, if the plant is flowering during the time of your order, the flowers will be removed so the plant can have the energy to make it through the mail and stay healthy.


All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.

Easy to grow for those without green thumb

If you don’t have a green thumb, just like I don’t have a green thumb. Day Lilly like this is for you. My plants came from this nursery a few days ago and they look great. Excited for them to grow up and then bloom. Anymore it’s hard to find this old school original daylillys orange color with so many new colors out there being sold. Happy someone is offering this older original day Lily like my gramma and grandpappy had back all along the fence rows in front of the house on their farm. They were always so pretty I remember as a kid seeing them all bloom in spring. Hundreds of them. Love day Lilly’s and love this weaver nursery business

You are right! Thanks so much!
