Prepare to be bowled over by this astounding daylily. ‘King of the Ages’ is aptly named with its regal height, enormous flowers, and magnificent coloring. It has 38-inch-tall scapes and large, 6.5-inch flowers. The fragrant blooms are a breathtaking fusion of buttery yellow, peach, and apricot with a burgundy eye and ruffled, burgundy edge. A repeat bloomer, it will bring color to your garden in mid-summer and again later in the season. Expect high performance from this tough, adaptable, award winner.

Rainbow Rhythm® 'King of the Ages' Hemerocallis resists leaf spot, root rot, and powdery mildew. It tolerates harsh conditions such as city pollution, juglone from black walnut trees, poor soils, and salt. It repels rabbits. This daylily grows well in pots, taking the role of thriller in a combination container. Use it in mass plantings or try pairing it with compact shrubs or ornamental grasses in the landscape. As an accent plant, it makes a fine specimen or focal point in the border.

Rainbow Rhythm® King of the Ages Daylily Care

Plant this easy-care daylily in well-drained soil and in a full-sun location. Incorporate organic matter for aeration, drainage, and fertility. Dig a hole twice as wide as the pot and be sure the crown of the plant is even with the soil level. Water thoroughly, then provide regular irrigation for optimum growth. 'King of the Ages' tolerates any type of soil and pH.

Cut back spent flower stems after flowering. No specific winter care is recommended as 'King of the Ages' has complete winter hardiness in northern zones. When growing them in containers, plant in a rich, soilless potting mix. If you are using a light-weight pot, you may want to place 2-3 inches of river rocks in the bottom first – this will prevent them blowing over when the plants are full grown. Water slowly until water comes out of the hole before placing the pot on a drip tray. Locate in full sun – at least six hours each day. Protect containers in the winter by placing them in an unheated garage or basement until they produce new shoots in the spring.

Rainbow Rhythm® King of the Ages Daylily Spacing

In the garden, space the plants 18-24 inches apart, from center plant to center. If planting in containers, large pots are best. They should be at least 24 inches in diameter.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
