Day Lily - Hemerocallis
Latin name:

Description: The ever-popular Day lilies are a must for the flower garden. Hemerocallis are ideal in the herbaceous border; the shorter stemmed varieties which are becoming more popular are also excellent grown around patios or used as edging. Mass planting gives a strong show of colour. They all have green, narrow, strap-like, arching foliage with large exotic flowers in almost every shade from white to deepest red-black. Although each flower lasts only a day, more are produced over a period of many weeks.

Hardiness: hardy

Height: From 30cm

Position: Full sun preferred

Soil: Any well-drained garden soil

Water: Mulch well to keep moist, although they will take dry conditions for short periods only

Usage: Best planted at the front of garden borders so that the flowers can be seen up close

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
