Hemerocallis 'Cranberry Baby' (Dwarf Red Daylily) - A deciduous freely-clumping variety that grows to 1 foot tall with 2 inch wide cranberry-red colored blossoms with ruffled petals and a dark eye. Early mid-season bloom / reblooms. Hybridized by Croker in 1984. Plant in full sun to light shade. Although tough enough to handle minimal irrigation, plants look better and bloom far more when given a regular watering. It is tolerant of most soils and temperatures down well below 0 F. The flowers are edible and tasty and contain considerable amounts of vitamins A and C, plus some protein. Added to salads they add color and flavor. The different cultivars have widely different flavors and, in general, the lighter colored flowers tend to taste better. Care should be exercised to noteat flowers of any plant that may have been sprayed with pesticides. People with plant allergies should check with their physician before eating daylilies. Hemerocallis comes from two Greek words meaning ''beauty'' and ''day,'' referring to the fact that each flower lasts only a day.  The information presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations of it growing in our nursery crops, as well as in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing Hemerocallis 'Cranberry Baby'.
