Daylily is a flowering plant in  genus Hemerocallis. It has been described by garden enthusiasts as “the backbone of the perennial garden” however though backbone would generally mean as fragile things, daylilies are anything but, they are close to being indestructible. They thrive in a wide range of soils and in sun or partial shade. Professional horticulturist have long bred daylily species for their attractive flowers. Daylily is native to Eurasia including China, Korea and Japan and it is popular worldwide because of the showy flwoers and hardiness of many kinds. Around the world there are over 60,000 registered cultivars, hundred have fragrant flowers and more scented cultivars are appearing more frequently in northern hybridization programs.

Since the early 1930s, hybridizers in the United States and England have made great improvements in daylilies. Originally, the only colors were yellow, orange, and fulvous red. Today, we have colors ranging from near-whites, pastels, yellows, oranges, pinks, vivid reds, crimson, purple, nearly true-blue, and fabulous blends. Many people are familiar with only the common yellow or orange daylilies which are often seen along roadsides.

 

For planting daylilies, select a site with full sun to light shade and well-drained soil. In areas with hot summers, light afternoon shade will keep brightly colored flowers from fading. Plant in spring, spacing the plants 1 to 3 feet apart. Prepare the garden bed by using a garden fork to loosen the soil to a depth of 12 inches, then mix in a 2 to 4 layer of compost. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the pot the plant is in. Carefully remove the plant from its container and place it in the hole so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Carefully fill in around the root ball and firm the soil gently. Water thoroughly.

 

The wise daylily gardener will apply a proper cultural program which includes watering, fertilizing, mulching, possibly spraying, grooming, controlling weeds, and sanitation. Daylilies can be quite prone to pests and disease when they get old and lose vigour. You can prevent this by dividing clumps every other year in either spring or autumn. The problems to watch out for are rust, spider mite, thrips and aphids. Slugs and snails can also be a problem.
