  • Botanical name: Hemerocallis 'Stafford'
  • Common name: Daylily
  • Family: Hemerocallidaceae
  • Plant Type: Perennial, Evergreen
Flower colour:

Red

Foliage colour:

Green

Daylilies, Hemerocallis, bear masses of elegant blooms for weeks on end, although individual flowers last only one day. They’re ideal for growing in a sunny border and make excellent cut flowers (the developing flower buds are just as attractive as the blooms themselves). In milder regions their strap-like foliage is evergreen, which is excellent for hiding unsightly spring bulbs after they have flowered. They’re incredibly easy to grow and thrive in almost any situation except permanently wet soil.
