For a garden upgrade that adds instant appeal, consider this gorgeous new evergreen variety. Booby Ruby features fully double, warm red blooms that sport apple-green throats and boast contrasting white midribs that provide extra impact. Graceful mounds of straplike, evergreen leaves remain attractive throughout the growing season and beyond, giving year-round beauty to any sunny outdoor space. Booby Ruby is a reliable mid to late-season rebloomer and bears plentiful 4" flowers on moderate 18" stems. To ensure this non-dormant daylily returns yearly, we suggest a light layer of mulch to protect against frost damage.
