Orange daylily-Hemerocallis fulva is the most common daylily, often seen along roadsides.
The scientific name for daylily is Hemerocallis, derived from two Greek words meaning "beauty" and "day," referring to the fact that each flower lasts only one day. To make up for this, there are many flower buds on each daylily flower stalk, and many stalks in each clump of plants, so, the flowering period of a clump is usually several weeks long.
Hybridizers have made great improvements in daylilies obtaining colors ranging from near-whites, pastels, yellows, oranges, pinks, vivid reds, crimson, purple, nearly true-blue, and fabulous blends. Many cultivars have more than one flowering period and are known to bloom from late spring until autumn.
These daylilies are cultivated forms of the wild types of daylilies which are growing as if they are wild, being able to survive with very little care.
Though they are beautiful perennial plants, suitable for all types of landscapes, my favorites are still the true lilies like Regal lily, Fire lily and Oriental lily.
