Daylili

Hemerocallis - Daylily

In the Lubera garden shop you can buy a wide range of beautiful daylilies. The colour palette ranges from bright yellow to mild apricot to a rich Bordeaux red. The daylily owes its name to the lifespan of its flowers. Each single flower only opens for one day, hence the name daylily. The botanical name Hemerocallis also plays on this peculiarity. It is composed of the Greek words "hemera" = day and "kallos" = beauty. But don’t worry: the supply of new flowers is so great that the short life of a single flower is not even noticeable. Day after day, above the narrow foliage, a wealth of new flowers opens up, bringing warm colours to the garden. Each variety blooms over a period of about four weeks.

Buying from the Lubera Garden Shop

Combining early and late flowering varieties, the daylilies will bring you pleasure from mid-May through the summer and into September. Many varieties, including numerous wild forms, but also breeds such as ‘Catherine Woodberry’ emit a pleasant scent.  No daylilies are poisonous and their flowers are even edible and very tasty. Each variety has its own taste from nutty to spicy.  Stunning on any plate, the differently shaped flowers have a high decoration value, providing a delicacy from the garden, which will wow your guests!  Strong perennial daylilies, which produce these stunning blooms, can be purchased here in the Lubera garden shop.

Buy daylilies

Daylily plants originate largely from China and Japan and are found mostly in groups and in mountainous regions. In the past few decades, hundreds of valuable Hemerocallis varieties in all conceivable colours and with variable flower shapes have emerged, especially in the USA. These breeds are based on various wild forms such as Hemerocallis fulva, which shines in distinctive brown-red or Hemerocallis esculenta (yellow-orange) and Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus (= yellow daylily).

Daylilies that bloom blue are not (yet) available, but a wealth of other colours are in abundance! In addition to classic yellow daylilies, daylilies that bloom in white are also available in the Lubera garden shop. The flower forms can be assigned to different groups. In addition to the wild species, there are small and large-flowered forms and miniature daylilies, which include the orange yellow variety ‘Pizza’.

Easy to grow

Daylilies are very frugal plants that need hardly any work to grow. Only during prolonged periods of drought is watering necessary. In the spring they will thank you for good compost. If the willingness to flower subsides despite regular fertilisation, the time has come to carefully divide the clumps. As a result, the plant will gain new vitality and produce new flowers in the coming season. If the foliage is not healthy after flowering, cut it back to 30 cm in order to allow it to regenerate.

Where to plant

The optimal location for daylilies is in the sun or partial shade. The soil must not be too dry, but apart from that the plants have no special requirements. In a perennial border, they are excellent when combined with catnip, various ornamental grasses, Helenium, Asters or Hosta. It is always worthwhile to buy daylilies, as they will bring you joy throughout the entire gardening season with happy summer colours.
