Handwriting on the Wall is a must-have for lovers of all things romantic and multi-hued, At the center of each flower, pastel tones blend like watercolor paints. This is an award-winner from renowned breeder Karol Emmerich, and we definitely see why. Lightly fragrant, 6" blooms open in midsummer and return in fall for a second show. Very drought-tolerant, and a reliable rebloomer, Handwriting on the Wall is the perfect purple picotee. Daylilies survive harsh conditions with ease, so even a newbie gardener can have great success with Handwriting on the Wall.

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.
