Named for the fleeting nature of their 6-petaled trumpetlike blossoms, Daylilies are hardy and easy to grow. Their strap-shaped leaves arch gracefully to form clumps of brilliant green. The buds and flowers are considered a delicacy by the Chinese, who enjoy them fresh or wilted in salads. Our selections are deciduous.
Gracing gardens since the 16th century, lovely lily-style bright lemon-yellow flowers promise a sweet fragrance and the earliest bloom time. Shiny strap-like bright green leaves describe a verdant semievergreen mass beneath dozens of narrow-petaled, 3 to 4 in. long blossoms, which are popular in Asian cuisine and favored by hummingbirds. This robust Chinese native can be planted near pathways, massed in mixed borders or allowed to naturalize, where it complements blue-flowering perennials, wards off bunnies and smothers weeds.
