If you are growing daylilies in Australia, you may as well look for the best, and Daylily ‘Cranberry Baby’ is certainly one of these.
This is a dwarf variety, however only in height, the flowers are large, slightly ruffled, velvety and cranberry pink coloured. You can add in a yellow throat for contrast.
This is repeat flowering like all daylilies and very easy care in the garden or container.
As this is a lower growing variety it is suited to container growing. It will grow well in full sun to a afternoon shade.
Although tolerant of a range of soils, best growth will be in a humus rich well drained soil.
Try growing near the front of the border so the flowers of this lower growing variety are more easily on display.
