The Stella de’ Oro thrives best in moist well drained soil and hot full sun. Be sure not to over fertilize this plant during the blooming period on the soil surface! Can grow up to 2 feet tall and 12 inches wide or more.
Grows well in most of the United States. Best USDA plant hardiness zones are 4-9. Growing season for the continued blooms depends on your zone but can bloom for long periods. The daylily stella d’oro is a great choice when you are looking for a pop of color with ground cover features.
You may be asking how to care for Stella de Oro Daylily. This reblooming daylily is easy to care for and the biggest benefit of removing the spent flower stalks is so more can appear. It can benefit from adding a slow release fertilizer in early spring to improve seed pod production. The golden yellow flowers will act in a spreading nature when the oro blooms drop the seed pods to the ground.
