Hemerocallis 'August Flame'
Item #: 4323
Zones: 3a to 9b
Height: 40" tall
In August, when most daylilies are just a memory, there are a few that stand alone...in full flower. One of our favorites is the '60s hybrid (you remember the '60s...free love, ban the bomb, get outta 'Nam), Hemerocallis 'August Flame'. From mid-July through August, the 3-4' tall flower stalks are topped with clusters of large, bright red flowers, each centered with a dramatic yellow-orange blotch...a hummingbird favorite. Because of its height and late season of flowering, Hemerocallis 'August Flame' is an excellent daylily for the perennial border.
