When you want a garden bed that pops or a border that really sings, look no further than Bela Lugosi. This amazing, award winner features rich, deep purple daylilies that are nearly black, punctuated with bright, citrusy hued throats. A staff favorite for its prolific nature, well-branched habit and sunfast color, Bela Lugosi keeps its promise of delivering a bevy of dark blooms that won't fade in the sun. Planted in groups along a well-traveled walkway, it creates a dynamic floral path that visitors will love. We suggest making it a focal point planting where it can be seen by curious passersby from midsummer onward. It naturalizes well, tolerates drought conditions and easily adapts to nearly any soil type. Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi'

Is Jumbo the Way to Go?
This daylily is available in a Jumbo Bareroot size. Ideal for gardeners who hate to wait, jumbo bareroots have a considerable head start over our standard #1 size.

Jumbo bareroot benefits:

  • Instant landscape impact
  • Faster plant growth
  • Earlier blooms—likely within the first year
SAS comparison
Our jumbo bareroot, multi-fan clumps have larger, more established root systems to produce more blooming scapes per plant than standard #1 bareroots.
