Day Lily in Our City Garden – Nature and Wildlife 13

Painting in front of garden

We saw the sign of kids lying on the grass when we enter public garden in our city. Long time, we did not visit this little garden.

There are plenty of blooming daylily. The word “daylily” refers to flower which open in the sunrise and die at night.

Since its stem has plenty flower buds, so blooming could take many weeks. Color combinations may be more than hundreds in the world, but we saw several dominant colors in our city garden:

- orange
- rose
- burgundy
- purple
- pink
- cream
- lavender


Yellow daylily


Flowering occur in the Spring until early Summer in our place. Other place could be till Fall season. We don’t know the number of varieties in our area, but around 80,000 varieties in the world.

Daylily are adaptable plants, they spread to almost part of USA, and even in Canada. The well known species called Hemerocallis fulva.


Orange with mix colors

If we lucky enough, we may notice wild daylily, especially orange ones at roadsides in many part of USA.


Orange daylily

Easy to adapt, also easy to spread into clumps. Crowd daylily may not bloom, thus we need to divide regularly. Some people do it for every three years.

Have you experienced to grow daylily? What color?

  6. I love day lilies. Unfortunately, the deer keep eating mine. People can eat the buds too, but then you get fewer flowers. They taste sort of like green beans.

    1. I had read your comment and want this say to you and other readers. Each type of flower has its own taste, generally the orange flowers tastes sweeter than the red varieties. These taste a bit pepperier. If you want to use the flower buds, you should blanch them for a few minutes. Some examples: The flowers can be used as a garnish. But you can also fill them with ice, whipped cream and crème brûlée or with rice and crayfish.

      You can eat the flowers raw in a salad, fry in a batter or bake in bacon. They can be made into pancake batter or filled with ice, with salmon salad or with a mixture of cream cheese and chives. How delicious they are is shown by the fact that there is a golden yellow daylily called "Daily Bread".

      You can stir-fry the buttons, and you can serve your guests this as a snack or put them in the soup.

      Did you know this too? The Chinese also put them in salt. By the way, they use everything from the plant: they boil the roots and make sandals from old leaves. Greetings from the Netherlands ~Tine

  8. Those daylilies are so beautiful! Sadly I can't have them because I have cats at home and they are poisonous for cats.
