Rocket City Daylily

It's another stormy day here (*SIGH*) and I decided I needed something to brighten up the day ... say hello to the Rocket City daylily.

Rocket City is an electric orange daylily with a burnt orangy-red eye. Look how bright it is! Trust me, you can almost feel the heat coming from it when you are close by.

Rocket City is a one of the taller daylily varieties and gets to be about 3 feet tall when fully in bloom. It has a 24-36 inch spread and is hardy in zones 3-9. Like pretty much all daylilies, it prefers full sun, but will also grow in part shade.

Rocket City starts blooming in early to mid season and will re-bloom periodically throughout the rest of the summer. My photos here of Rocket City were taken about a week ago, but it's still full of blooms and buds.

Rocket City will certainly brighten up any garden spot, any rainy day, or gloomy disposition... enjoy!
