Bright white daylilies set against a vibrant red background. Besides blue, white is one of the only colors that daylilies are not availble in. So I’ve altered these lovely flowers to create what is not possible in nature. Daylilies are sometimes called the perfect perennial due to many factors.Their ability to tolerate drought, they thrive in many growing zones,and come in a wide variety of beautiful colors. Lighter colored daylilies need more sun to bring out their colors while the darker varieties require more shade. Besides beautifying our gardens, some varieties are edible and used in Chinese cuisine. Some are also used for medicinal purposes but do to some species toxicity caution must be used.
