Happy Returns is the definition of "classic for a reason." This happy yellow daylily has been around the world and still can't be beaten for cottage gardening and summertime joy. Happy Returns Daylily is among the best in this size class, with bright yellow flowers at just the right height. Standing at just 18 inches tall, this trumpet-shaped daylily is a true workhorse in borders, containers, or along walkways. A prolific bloomer with an early start date, Happy Returns blooms in early spring and again, sporadically, through summer. Lightly ruffled, trumpet-shaped flowers grab the eye and bring a smile to the face. Hemerocallis 'Happy Returns

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.
