So what are daylilies? Daylilies are probably the flower with the most different color variations then any other plant in perennials gardens. As you could see they come with brilliant colors, they come with settle colors, on this particular one there might be 20 buds per clump. Other you might find flowers that might be a little bit larger with a only a few but they all have one thing in common and that is kind of makes me smile cause they are beautiful flowers and they make anyone's garden look wonderful. So why are they called daylilies? Ever single flower that you see in front of you right now the biggest one's, the smallest one's, the one's with 4,5 blooms per stem every single one of these flowers would be dead. Cause they one last for one day. But the great thing about it is every bud that is about to be about open right now would be opening tomorrow so you would have basically the same look tomorrow. So your garden never really changes it stays the same different flowers may appear with 5-10 buds, you may have your red one's, you may have your white one 's or your pink one's. Some of them will come earlier, some of them would stay later, but I guarantee if you put daylilies in your garden you would be just as happy with them as I am.
