A daylily or day lily is a flowering plant in the genus Hemerocallis. Despite the common name, it is not in fact a lily. The flowers only last for a day but the good news is that they start flowering in mid summer and continue until the end of August with new flowers opening every day. They are not fussy about the kind of soil they grow in but they do like about 6 hours of sunshine daily.
One day of life these beautiful lilies get 🥺🥺
Well, they’ll get their sunshine for the next few days – and how!
These are almost over now, but they have been flowering for weeks.
Don’t we all? 🤭💕
Well you’re not doing badly for sunshine this trip. Must have brought it over with you 🌞🌞
Any fun days out?
Enjoyed Saltaire on Sunday. Doing Royal Armouries today. The rest has been local parks sandwiched around DIY. Rain forecast from Monday so making the most 😎🌞💕
York? Scarborough? My kids used to love the museum in York, not Yorvik, the other one. Plus the railway museum.
Castle Museum. Don’t know. Would have to check transport options 😊💕
Must be plenty of trains.
York is doable. Scarborough takes almost 3 hours from here. One way! Have to get into town first. Lots of things need sorting this week. Will see what next week brings 🤗💕
They will certainly be doing well around here at the moment. We have been getting bright sunshine for weeks now, from 6am-7pm.
Best wishes, Pete. x
You should get some!
How pretty! I hadn’t realised they weren’t real lilies 🤔
We had daylillies down our long driveway when we lived in the countryside. Easy care and a burst of colour. They would’ve enjoyed your warm summer this year.
They usually do very well, but definitely need splitting up this year. My only problem is that they are not the right colour. I prefer the darker ones.
Your beautiful post sent me to check what we call day lillies in Australia, as I’ve posted one before but sooo different. It appears that my day lily was, in fact, a butterfly iris. I’ll get it right next time.
Dietes? I saw them in the Sydney area, such beautiful irises.
You ARE good. Yes, dietes iridioides.
I did a post about them back in 2014 ☺️
It looks like a lily … but even though it’s not one, it certainly is beautiful!
They are gorgeous
