The name "Hemerocallis" is derived from Greek words for "day" and "beautiful," referring to the individual flowers lasting for about 24 hours.
Both closed flowerbuds and open flowers of the daylily are edible, with the petals and sepals frequently used for colour contrast in salads.
Daylily Growing and Maintenance Tips
Hemerocallis prefer average to moist, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Daylilies with very dark flower colours benefit from more shade. Adaptable to many soil conditions, even heavy clay soils. Once established, Hemerocallis can tolerate heat and drought conditions. Prune down flower stalks after they finish to improve overall appearance and lengthen bloomtime. They spread (most slowly, some more aggressively) by underground rhizomes. Easy to grow.
