Daylily Plant Profile in July

Whilst most individual flower heads open and wither within 24 hours, each stalk bears many buds which bloom successively for several weeks or more. The Latin name Hemerocallis derives from the Greek words for 'beauty' and 'day', and it is not surprising that the sheer variety of stunning flowers make them such a popular flower. With more than 30,000 different cultivars to choose from, daylilies come in a rainbow of colours spanning cream through yellow and orange to pink, scarlet, purple and deep red. Modern cultivars also come in a variety of forms, ranging from lily-shaped trumpets to triangular, circular, star or spider-shaped examples. Others sport striking colour combinations, or pronounced ruffling on the outer edges of the petals.
