Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are perennial plants producing many large blooms on stalks usually 3 to 4 feet tall (90 to 120 cm). Flowers are trumpet- or cup-shaped, reflexed or double. Flowers last about a day, but there are many flowers on each stalk that the short flower life is not a problem. The daylily blooming period lasts many weeks, from early to late summer.

Normally, daylily is diploid plant, but breeders developed tetraploids that have twice as many chromosomes as diploids. Tetraploids have richer, more intense colors, heavier petal texture, exceptional and unusual forms. If you want to know more about daylilies, please visit the American Hemerocallis Society.
