Hemerocallis ‘Big Time Happy’

An outstanding selection bred by Dr. Darrel Apps, one of only a small handful of truly everblooming Daylilies available to gardeners in northern regions. This lovely variety has large (4 inch) soft lemon-yellow blooms with ruffled edges and a green throat. Flowering continues constantly from May to frost. Diploid. Winter dormant. Spent flower stems can be trimmed back after all the buds have finished. Remove old foliage in late fall. Plants do not usually require dividing for several years, but are easily split apart in fall or early spring.  May well prove to be hardy in Zone 2.

Now available in limited quantities at IPN!

B&B Digging Update

B&B UPDATE:   The warmer days of spring have all of our dormant plants into spring flush.  We are now in "Customer Dig Risk" status for B&B deciduous plants.  We are also pre-watering prior to digging so extra time is needed for B&B shipments.  Extra care is needed post planting for a successful transplant. See your IPN Salesperson for details.

Liquidambar syraciflua 'Silver King'

What a great show!
Liquidambar syraciflua 'Silver King'
American Sweetgum - variegated

This great cultivar shouts with color in the landscape and is great against darker backgrounds. Following the spring/summer color show, fall brings very dark shades of plum purple and then red prior to release.

  • Height/Spread: grows to 15 - 20ft tall by 10 - 12ft wide.
  • Foliage: white/green variegation takes the summer heat well.
  • Autumn Color: a spectacular show: leaf margins tinged with pink.
  • Location: prefers full sun. Tolerates partial shade, but variegation    suffers with more shade.
  • Hardiness: zone 5 - 9

  • Ingleside currently has 'Silver King' available in both 1.75-2" #25 and 2-2.5" #25 sizes.  Call us for more details!
