Finding a plant that changes the game in gardening is rare, but ‘Stella d’Oro’ is one of those gems that has transformed our view of daylilies. With its lightly fragrant, bright yellow, star-shaped flowers blooming from May to July and its compact, carefree nature, it’s no wonder this daylily is the most popular one around. ‘Stella d’Oro’ thrives in poor soil and tough landscape spots where other plants struggle, showing off its attractive foliage and a constant display of flower stalks. Whether you plant it in a sunny or shady spot, or even in a container, it performs beautifully every time!
