Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are now considered a wildflower in America. Although they were originally introduced from Asia, they are so successful at becoming “wild” that they are naturalized citizens:>). Although each bloom lasts for only a day, each stalk has many buds and each plant usually has many stalks.
They love sunshine but will tolerate partial shade and still bloom. Our roadsides and fields and gardens wouldn’t be the same without their presence. Three cheers for this lovely, stubborn survivor! The hybrid forms come in almost every color from white to deep purple/red. No blue yet, as far as I know – too bad.
I used a texture from French Kiss to enhance this picture.
