Creating the Setting
From the tropics to sub-tropics, to temperate and cold regions, daylilies are a very worthy and rewarding addition to your garden, no matter the style or where you live. Mass planted, smaller group plantings or even just 4 or 5 plants in a beautiful large container, their ability to dazzle, is undeniable. Many people wrongly assume that the name ‘daylilies’ implies that they only flower for one day. Even though the individual flowers only last a day or two, they produce multiple flower stems and thus have a long flowering season, some flowering for two months and then reblooming later in the season right into autumn and winter. Most start flowering from October (ie the start of the southern hemisphere summer). There are now about 80 000+ daylily cultivars registered with the American Hemerocallis Society with many new varieties being added annually.
