Each bloom only lasts for one day, hence the name "daylily".
They are edible and very tasty in salads.
She's done the same thing with cupcakes, placing one daylily in each cup. She's a genius!
Another word for daylily is hemerocallis.
Be careful to not overwater. They don't care for "wet feet".
Some hybrids are evergreen, so lovely grasslike foliage is present even in the winter.
Most hybrids bloom throughout the growing season.
They make great hide outs for katydids!
If you have a sunny location that needs a little 'zhuzh', consider daylilies. There are so many beautiful options in color, height and form! I bet there is a hybrid just for you! They are gorgeous in containers, too!
