Day lilies

(Question)

Is it possible to get second bloom from day lilies. They always look so nice then when they are done it’s all just leaf.

(Answer)

Daylilies (Hemerocallis) comprise an enormous number of varieties. Although many, including the common orange ones, bloom only once and briefly at that, there are also many lovely varieties that do rebloom.

You can find a long list of them on the website of the American Hemorocallis Society here. Just tick off the “rebloom” box near the bottom of the search form. And of course, you may also select for colour, fragrance and so on, as the form suggests.

Happy daylily shopping!
