Hemerocallis 'Cranberry Baby' is one of the smallest daylilies available. This resilient dwarf daylily has a compact habit and tidy foliage with sweet, pinkish-red mini blooms that will thrive in the California landscape and look beautiful in the garden for years.
There are so many daylily varieties to choose from but not all varieties are suited for the California climate. Some daylilies only have one bloom cycle or are susceptible to Daylily Rust, an unattractive fungus. Hemerocallis ‘Cranberry Baby’ is rust-resistant and a rebloomer with a long flowering period that extends from April through November and is an excellent choice for your California garden.
Popular for its long flowering period, disease-resistance, and low maintenance, Cranberry Baby Daylily features small, cranberry-red flowers on short, slender stalks. This daylily blooms early in spring and flowers profusely with multiple repeat bloom cycles through late fall. The 2 inch diameter flowers appear 4 inches above the slender green foliage that forms clumps 12 inches tall by 18 inches wide. Evergreen in temperatures above 25 ℉, dormant in colder climates.
Daylilies are relatively low maintenance and easy to grow herbaceous perennials that can be used in a variety of garden styles and designs, including cottage gardens and rock gardens. Excellent in borders or as edging along walkways, Hemerocallis look best when planted in large groups of a single flower color for the best dramatic effect in a landscape.
Hemerocallis 'Cranberry Baby' tolerates dry heat, cold winters, and smog making it an excellent choice for hotter inland gardens. Alternatively, ‘Cranberry Baby’ is great in coastal gardens, tolerant of cool, damp nights, wind, sea spray, and salty soils. It is also a great choice near pools as it tolerates reflected heat from pavement, pool chlorine, and its soft slender leaves are family friendly. ‘Cranberry Baby’ can also withstand submersion for weeks in rain gardens, soggy soils, or bioswales. Cranberry Baby Daylily is resilient and beautiful.
