July Bloom – Daylilies

Daylilies need to come with a warning—these plants can be habit forming! Once you have grown them for yourself, I think you’ll understand why they have such an enthusiastic following.

The genus name for daylily, hemerocallis, was derived from two Greek words meaning “beautiful for a day.” Each bloom lives and dies in the course of a day, but a single plant produces a plethora of buds that flower for weeks. Here are a few that I grow in my garden.

'Joan Senior' Daylily

'Going Bananas' Daylily is part of my Platinum Collection from Proven Winners®

'Mary Todd' Daylily

'Barbara Mitchell' Daylily

'Strawberry Candy' Daylily

'Persian Market' Daylily

Hemerocallis fulva is often referred to as ditch lily because it is found growing wild along the roads in ditches.

'Primal Scream' Daylily is part of my Platinum Collection from Proven Winners®

'Charles Johnston' Daylily

'Red Ribbons' Daylily

'Nosferatu' Daylily

'Night Beacon' Daylily

    My daylilies have stopped blooming just recently. I assumed it was the time of year. Also my thin leaves are folding over about half way up. What causes that? Is it because its so hot here in Dallas, Tx.

    I recently heard that Miracle grow was not a good fertilizer product for my plants. I use the water soluble product. What is a good product to use for this type of fertilizing.

    I always thought that orange lillies were called Tiger Lillies. That’s what my mother & grandmother always told me they were. What exactly is a “tiger lilly” or is there really any such thing?

    I really like the varieties you have pictured here and must have more…They are such a trouble free flower…love them! Thanks for sharing Allen.

  8. R Daniel says:

    Jeff– Tiger lilies are true lilies,not daylilies. They are indeed orange, but they have black spots scattered over the blossom.
