4″ bloom, 18″ tall, Extra-Early Season + rebloom, Dormant

Although the name says apricot, this beauty looks more like homemade peach ice cream! One of the earliest daylilies to bloom, ‘Apricot Sparkles’ is also one of the best reblooming varieties– so you can enjoy its luscious color all season long!

    SOIL DIFFERENCES

    I planted this variety in Houston where the soil was sandy and i had the effects as described. Outstanding display, dusting, etc. I would rate it 5. But I planted it in Atlanta with a heavy clay soil and it failed.in all descriptions. In fact it died. Rated it 2. So maybe soil plays a big role in this one.

    What is your hardiness zone? Zone 6

    I’m a bit underwhelmed with this one. I have much splashier ones from Oakes for less money. I’m in Zone 6a in SW PA and it started blooming a bit its second season and did get a little rebloom. This season, it has been blooming for about a month which is great, and the color is a nice creamy apricot, the foliage fine, but not a standout, even though I have it by itself in a wall corner. Definitely needs to be in the foreground , by itself or in a group to get noticed. I keep looking for dusting, too, but don’t see it. A visually pleasant posey, but not one to stop me in my tracks.

    Not my favorite. I like color but it’s been a let down as far as blooming goes. I’ve had it two year. Maybe this year will be better

    I am really let down with this daylily. I got it last year. All the other preformed fantastically. The foliage on this plant looks just like wild green onions. I had a total of 2 flowers. I saw no diamond dusting and the blooms were really tiny. It is living just fine. I hope this year brings a lot of improvement. I will definitely reevaluate it this summer. I just wonder where these great reviews come from and if I did something wrong.

    I wish I could give this daylily a glowing review, like the other reviews here, but unlike all my other daylilies from Oakes, this one is most disappointing. This is its third year in my garden and it has just put up a few spindly bloom stalks with very few buds. Apricot Sparkles hides what blooms she has down in the foliage. Its companion daylilies are vigorous, performing as expected.

    Apricot Sparkles is always in bloom, it seems. I think it just reblooms for me so often that I forget the time that it isn’t in bloom. I love going out in early morning and seeing it sparkling in the sun from the diamond dust. I’d recommend it to anyone who loves prolific daylilies(is there anyone who doesn’t) in a great apricot color.

    This is an amazingly reliable rebloomer! I can count on it to produce at least 3 bloom cycles. For zone 6 thats a lot of blooming. The 9 rating is due to the small flowers (I personally prefer larger blooms) but other than that it is very pretty

    This prolific everbloomer is a true gem. Apricot Sparkles blooms in our Zone 5b/6a garden in early to mid June and keeps blooming through October. The flowers are a lovely soft apricot color that works well with most other flower colors. The foliage is also terrific: narrow, dark green, arching and in proportion to the blooms. Our plants have been in the garden for three summers now and each clump throws up more than a dozen scapes at a time with ten or more buds per scape. This happens all summer! For best results, we have found we need to fertilize regularly and remove the spent scapes. That is not too much work for the beautiful results.
