Daylilies – Also known as Hemerocallis

Daylilies – the perfect perennial!

Perfection is a pretty high standard but I think you might agree that this plant comes pretty close to meeting that definition.  Their real name is Hemerocallis but that just does not sound as pleasant as “Daylily”.  They’re called the perfect perennial because they seem to thrive everywhere they are planted with very little care and come in several colors.  A fun fact is that each bloom usually only lasts for a day and then it is replaced with a new flower.  Most varieties bloom for about 6 weeks but some of the newer varieties have a “second blooming period”.
