The surprising blend of colors on wide open petals sets Desert Flame apart from typical red and orange blooms. In a pot by your front door, all along a garden bed, in a pretty vase on your kitchen table, these exotic blooms are a work of art. And it's not hard to get the look—daylilies are extraordinarily sturdy perennials. Desert Flame is great in a mixed perennial border too, as it's a reliable performer that'll extend the interest with a late-summer rebloom. Hemerocallis 'Desert Flame' We provide such a great selection of daylilies, like Desert Flame, because they're so easily long-lived. You can expect a handsome mound of foliage from spring into fall, joined by tons of one-a-day flowers through a long bloom season. Come drought, deer, poor soil, slopes, pests and diseases, these daylilies will shine for years to come.

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.
