I consider Stella one of my garden workhorses. Early to emerge, the foliage covers spent bulbs well, blooms over a long period of time, blends well with other plants, and is generous with divisions. I originally got a start from a friend and now have several clumps scattered throughout my yard. Welcome spots of sunshine.

'Stella De Oro' does not disappoint in the garden! It blesses your world with beauty and grace in nothing short of hot, hot full sun exposure and drought conditions! Here in Zone 6a, Stella is a staple in professional landscapes and steep hill plantings, with its long bloom season, and it is absolutely stunning in mass plantings, not to mention that it's water wise! =D

Currently probably the most universally grown Daylily and once much coveted for its ability to re-bloom. Always one of the first to bloom in Summer, the rich golden yellow bell shaped flowers are produced in quantity on a very compact plant. If treated kindly produces an almost continuous show from June to late Autumn. Moderately susceptible to rust.

Stella de Oro is always the first daylily to bloom in my zone 6b garden, adding bright lights wherever it grows. It blooms and reblooms (after a rest) from early to late in the season, year after year, without special care, e.g., watering. I live on top of a windy, drought-prone hill where water must be rationed, so I don't water Stella de Oro. I haven't done much fertilizing or dividing because I don't have places for the divisions.

The foliage is always very nice until after the first bloom cycle. Then it tends to turn brown and thin out. Subsequent scapes are shorter, less plentiful and less robust, but they do continue intermittently all season.

I use Stella de Oro to edge gardens, prevent erosion on slopes, and fill empty spaces in the garden that need a bit of brightness.
