Daylily

DaylilyThe daylily, which is often referred to by its genus name of Hemerocallis, has become one of the most popular herbaceous perennials to have in the garden. There are several reasons for its popularity. Along with their beauty, gardeners love that they are easy to grow and maintain.

The collection began with a gift of 250 Hemerocallis cultivars from the Leon and Mary Delmez estate in the fall of 1996.
