One of the most vibrantly colored Daylilies to come along in a while, 'Prairie Wildfire' sets the midsummer garden ablaze with five-inch-wide, fiery red blooms accented with a brilliant yellow throat! The finely ruffled, slightly recurved petals create a lovely open look that's very elegant. And as an added bonus, the flowers are delicately fragrant!

'Prairie Wildfire' is known to be a prolific bloomer, offering a high bud count that ensures many flowers. The neat, compact habit makes this Daylily perfect for containers, edgings, and the front of the border as well as for mass displays in beds and along driveways or fences.

This midseason bloomer reaches up to 23 inches high, and is a dormant tetraploid. This means that its foliage dies back in winter, which is an important consideration for northern gardeners. Many Daylilies are semi-evergreen, and when severe winter weather hits their leaves, it can do permanent damage. So 'Prairie Wildfire' is a great choice for the far north. And it is a "tetraploid," meaning that it has twice the chromosomes of traditional Daylilies (many of today's newer varieties are tetraploid), which accounts for the large bloom size, brighter colors, and greater garden vigor.

Daylilies are some of the easiest plants you can grow, thriving in almost any soil and handling everything from drought to wet soil conditions, although they do prefer well-drained areas receiving full sun. 'Prairie Wildfire' has proven itself able to survive conditions many other plants cannot, such as polluted city areas, slopes, roads and walkways that receive salt during winter, and even under Black Walnut trees (they are not affected by juglone). This is one Daylily your garden simply must have! Zones 3-9.
