Daylilies are one of our most popular garden flowers. Basically you can plant 'um and forget 'um. They are probably the most hybridized plant in the world with every color and flower shape imaginable available. They belong to the genus Hemerocallis which means "day" and "beautiful" in Greek. The flowers typically open at dawn and close at dusk lasting but a single day. They are native to Asia and are not true lilies which typically have nodding, spotted flowers.
