Mixed Daylilies
Daylilies Genus of about 20 species of evergreen, semi-evergreen and herbaceous perennials from forest margins to mountainous areas, marshy river areas and meadowland in China, Korea and Japan. Most flowers last for one day only and many are remontant, flowering repeatedly throughout the season. Flowers can be circular, triangular, star-shaped, spider-like or double and some unusual forms, ruffled, margined or quilled. They flower for such a long period of the summer that they remain a constant feature while other flowers appear and disappear around them. Daylilies are easy plants to grow and are tolerant of most soils as long as it isn't water-logged – they cannot stand stagnant conditions. Although they hate to be standing in water, daylilies need quite a lot of moisture for the buds to form properly. Mulching in late autumn and spring will help to keep up the water levels in the soil without making it soggy. Daylilies prefer a sunny spot where they will produce the biggest and most numerous flowers, they can cope with dappled shade but will flower less. Be careful with the dark coloured flowers which will fade and even shrivel in extremely bright midday sun as they absorb so much heat. Plants are best divided every two or three years to keep them vigorous.
