Daylilies, day after day

Daylilies, Hemerocallis, deserve your attention, day after day

A plant, whose flowers come and goes in the span of one day, does not sound like a plant which makes a solid impact in the garden. And yet daylilies are one of the mainstays of the perennial garden.

Daylilies, when in bloom, provide for a mid summer's worth of flower displays because of the production of three, four or six flowers per flowering stem. The original orange daylily that has successfully colonized along roadways or ditch banks will have as many as six to 12 flower per flowering scape.
