Daylilies are an easy to grow rewarding perennial plant which can be grown in all states of Australia.
Daylilies flower from spring to autumn with spasmodic flowering in winter. Daylily hybrids have evolved from a small group of species in the genus Hemerocallis, which is in the lily family.
Until recently, the daylily flower was only available in yellow, orange and fulvous red. Today, however, the color range varies from white, pastel, orange, yellow, vivid red, maroon, lavender, purple to nearly true blue and other exotic blends, thanks to the availability of hybridizing techniques.
A single daylily flower stays open for one day but daylilies can have up to 50 flowers on one flowering scape, if you select daylilies with different bloom times, this will give you a continuous display of flowers throughout the daylily flowering season.
Daylilies love to be mulched as it helps to keep the ground temperature cool. Never ever recycle daylily leaves as mulch because the daylily leaves might have a problem disease.
Daylilies have foliage which is either one of evergreen, semi-evergreen or dormant. The flowering period of daylilies also varies, some flower early in a season others flower towards the end of season. The majority of modern hybrid daylilies rebloom, meaning you will have a lovely display of daylilies over an extended period.
I am by no means a daylily expert but on my website I have composed some daylily information on how to grow and plant daylilies, based on my own growing experience and some common daylily terms/abbreviations used when describing daylily culture/habits.
You will also be able to read up on daylily hybridization methods, different ways to propagate daylilies, how to propagate daylilies by seed, daylily clump division, daylily proliferations and tissue culture propagation. Also I will explain about daylily fungus diseases – daylily crown rot and daylily root rot, daylily spring sickness, daylily mustard seed fungus, daylily scape blasting and lastly daylily rust which you can decide if it is of a great concern to your self.
The American Hemerocallis Society has stamped the daylily the perfect perennial because daylilies are drought resistant once established, low maintenance plants and produce an incredible variety of color for a water-wise garden.
Daylilies grow and increase rapidly, also showing great tolerance to a wide range of soil types, but a daylily grows and blooms best when exposed to a minimum 6 - 7 hours of sunlight and provided with well drained slightly acidic soil, rich in organic matter, ideal pH is 6.5, composted with well rotted manure and sufficient watering and fertilizer is important to the health of daylily plants, mulch is also good as it eventually rots into the ground and keeps weeds at bay.
Daylilies that have stopped blooming have probably received too much nitrogen which will provide the plant with lots of leaves and no flowers, daylilies are not bulbs so don’t plant them to deep this is another reason for non flowering daylilies.
Daylilies are heavy bud builders but are usually not sold at florists as cut flowers. Hybridizing daylilies and other flowers is a favourite pass time. It is very exciting unlocking the genetic pool of the next generation of daylilies and an easy thing for all gardeners young and old to take part in.
Daylily hybrids of today come in an amazing range of colors, shapes and sizes, i.e double daylilies, spider daylilies, miniature daylilies, the normal single daylily and unusual formed daylilies.
There are daylily varieties that are suitable for a wide range of landscaping needs, ranging from miniature sized to large. Daylily blooms can vary amazingly in size from a tiny 1 inch to a massive 16 inch.
