- Comments:Gardeners love this daylily for its clean, bright flowers and contrasting, dark purple eyes, its neat mound of foliage and delicious aroma! Individual blooms are not huge, but there are so many it creates an extremely showy plant. Its strong fragrance can be enjoyed when planted near an entrance or patio. 4″ blooms on 20-24″ stems. Award of Merit 1987. Low-growing, creamy flowers with a vibrant maroon eye. Blooms nonstop during June and July. Evergreen growing 18 – 20 inches tall.
The flowers of this vigorous daylily are awash in rich cream color with striking violet-purple eyezones and vibrant green throats. As the 4″ ruffled blooms appear in early to midsummer, they bring an amazing look to perennial beds and mixed border plantings. Mounds of dark, evergreen foliage make a fantastic backdrop to the lightly colored flowers. But what really makes Pandora’s Box special is its extended bloom time. Unlike some daylilies, this stunning award winner’s flowers stay open for 16 hours per day—sometimes even longer! Plus, it is disease- and pest-resistant, making it a wonderful go-to plant for any garden. Daylilies are easy to grow and require little maintenance to look fabulous all season long. Long-lived and hardy, it will come back year after year with ease. Zones 3-9.
