A classic, huge tetraploid Daylily!
‘Buttered Popcorn’ has large flowers that have a butter-yellow self and are fragrant! In 1958, plant breeder Fred Benzinger decided to specialize in Daylilies. It was a good thing because thirteen years later he introduced Buttered Popcorn to Daylily enthusiasts. This classic tetraploid cultivar quickly became a favorite! It made Daylily history as an All America winner. The scapes (the stems that support the blossoms) tend to grow to multiple heights. This produces buttery-colored flowers at different levels – like popping corn. Buttered Popcorn’ looks spectacular when planted in mass! It’s a large flowered variety, with blooms as wide as 6″ in diameter. It has a long bloom period. Some say it looks like a yellow peony!
The Daylily is a basic for any garden, requiring minimal care. This perennial grows almost anywhere and is not particular about the soil conditions. They can be used for borders, groups or naturalizing. Daylilies are clump-forming and multiply freely. Daylilies come back year-after-year!
