Additional Information

Daylilies

Low-maintenance perennials which produce a clump of narrow arched leaves topped with a scape of lily-shaped flowers from July to September.

The genus name Hemerocallis means beautiful day, referring to each flower lasting only a day; but since each flower scape is covered with buds, bloom periods can be extensive. To aid rebloomers, deadhead scapes—remove spent flowers before they form seed capsules.

A single daylily flower has three petals and three sepals, all six together called tepals, each with a midrib in the same or a contrasting color. A “self” has all tepals and ribs the same color, though the throat may be the same or a different color.

Plant 12-18" apart in average soil; benefits from a shovel or two of compost. Very hardy, flourishes under a wide range of conditions, from full sun to shade, wet to dry. Once well established, divide every 4-5 years.
