Sunfast Daylilies

Jan 15, 2015

Looking for daylilies that hold their color all day and don't melt away in the heat? So am I. The key words when searching for such cultivars are "sunfast," and "heat and humidity tolerant." Sunfastness is particularly important when searching for dark colored daylilies. Below is an alphabetized list of sunfast daylilies (dark and otherwise) that I've identified so far. If you know of others, please email me. My email address is located at the bottom right of this page. I'll recognize your contribution when I add it to the list by including your name behind each cultivar name you send me.
