    Ruffled golden edges pirouette around lavender-pink petals with a soft golden halo, leading into a green-lemon throat. Generally trouble-free, salt and rabbit tolerant, ‘Lavender Tutu’ will encore later in the year with its repeat blooming of impressive 15cm (6") flowers. The foliage is semi-evergreen in milder areas and this daylily has been selected for its abundance of blossoms, vibrant colours, and toughness in a range of climates and soils.

  • 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.
  • Cats: TOXIC if eaten
