This is an important consideration for northern gardeners since ‘ Ruby Spider’ is a great choice for the far north! Individual flowers last only one day, but since each plant produces many buds, the total blooming time of a well-established clump may last more than a month.
Use this daylily for color in shrub borders and in perennial beds.
Once established, the daylily can be an excellent groundcover on slopes because it has roots that hold soil against erosion.
Divide every 3-5 years, or when the number of flower buds and the size of bloom begin to decline.
It also attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
