About Daylilies

Daylilies are the ‘perfect herbaceous perennial’, as they come in many different shapes, sizes, colours, and are drought tolerant with low maintenance required.  The majority of varieties are evergreen with semi-evergreen and dormant varieties also existing.  They are a very popular plant as they can survive high temperatures, excessive rainfall, frost and snow, high winds and salty sea spray.  As noted by Graeme Grosvenor, their hardiness has led them to being despised by some, much in the way that many gardeners and landscapers regard the ubiquitous Dietes and Agapanthus.

The flowers (petals and sepals) open at dawn and die at dusk (up to 8-12 hours in flower).  Each individual flower scape can have up to 35+ buds, and each plant clump (many plants) can have several scapes at any one time.  Flowering times can differ between varieties, ranging from early flowering, mid-season bloomers to the late bloomers.  There are also varieties that flower all season at a steady rate!

As mentioned earlier, flowers range in sizes from small (miniatures), large and extra large blooms, double flowers (doubles), and spider varieties.  Some blooms have fragrant flowers whilst others sugars glistening in the sun.  In the last decade or so, heavily ruffled and frilled petal edges and bold bright contrast coloured eyes have come about from professional hybridizations where cross-pollinations come in handy.

Daylilies are monoecious, where both male and female reproductive parts are on the same flower.  Every flower has six stamens (male pollen) and one stigma (female).  Personally, I can usually tell if a daylily will be flowering the following day.  The majority of flowers shoot out the stigma during the day prior to opening.  This is to allow for cross-pollination and to prevent self-pollination. 

Propagation of daylilies is can be done by divisions, proliferations, seeds and for those with all the equipment, tissue culture.  If the plants are in a great amount of sunlight daily, fed well (we found they love cow and horse manure), they multiply greatly, so divisions yearly, during the winter months is a good way to produce more 100% parental plants.  Proliferations, I find amazing.  In 2101-2011 I was fascinated by the amount of proliferations the plants produced.  Over 50.  After the scape has placed all the nutrients back into the plant (when the scape is drying), remove the proliferation, which should have a couple of roots growing, place in some water for a week of so to increase root growth then plant and water well.  Seeds are a great way to go if you don’t mind not knowing what cross/variety it is.  Even if you self pollinate it, you can never be too sure!

 Daylilies can easily survive a week in moist newspaper, but if you would like express post, please let us know!
