The above Daylily (Hemerocallis) was photographed in Youngsville, Louisiana at the home of my sister-in-laws (Denise). Denise has been successfully cultivating and hybridizing Daylily for many years. Daylilies are a perennial plant. The name Hemerocallis is derived from the Greek words “day” and “beautiful”. A Daylily bloom will typically last for only one day. However, a new Daylily bloom will continue to open on cut stems for several days. Depending on the species of Daylily they can grow in USDA plant zones 1 through 11.
See the following Wikipedia link to learn more about the Daylily.
