In contrast to the ephemeral flowers the plant is one of the sturdiest known to gardeners, and it does reflect the core meaning of the word "perennial" which in Latin means: more than two years. It definitely lives longer than that. What is more, it is a dream plant for breeders who have been busy creating new cultivars with stunning flowers that can take our breath away.
Beautiful and indestructible - a rare combination even among plants. A plant which deserves our attention and care. In reality, daylilies can perfectly do without both of them. But it is hard not to be kind to them for their persistent growth and blooming. And not to become crazy about them knowing that there are more than 60 000 cultivars and new ones are waiting in line. What a secure hobby to take up!
