Each flower lasts only one day – hence the name Day Lily – but the large exotic looking flowers just keep on coming throughout the summer months. It should be compulsory for every garden to have at least one of these wonderful plants. Whoopy has large wine-purple flowers with near-black centres and a yellow throat. Fabulously dark and brooding. Full sun. Any reasonable soil. 24 in. 2 litre pot.

Fragrant, which adds to the allure. Reminds us a bit of H. Bela Lugosi, which is also dark and mysterious.
Easy to care for - just remove any old flowers as they go over and remove old foliage in early winter.
