Here are some of the daylilies that are blooming right now.
Daylilies are not true lilies but belong to the genus Hemerocallis, which means "beautiful for a day." Each bloom lasts only one day, but each scape produces multiple buds providing blooms for several weeks. Buds per scape can range from as few as ten to over fifty!
Daylilies are some of the easiest and most dependable plants you can grow. They are considered to be the perfect perennial because they grow in many climates, requires little care, resists drought and bloom for a long time each year.
Of course the pink shades are always my favorite.
They come in all kinds of colors and sizes ranging from tiny dwarfs to towering scapes.
These beauties have come a long way from the tall orange lilies that grow wild beside the road which I always call "ditch lily".
