Daylilies are rugged, adaptable, vigorous perennials that endure in a garden for many years with little or no care. Daylilies adapt to a wide range of soil and light conditions. They establish quickly, grow vigorously, and survive winters with little or no injury.
Daylilies belong to the genus Hemerocallis and are not true lilies. This Greek word is made up of two parts: hemera meaning day and kallos meaning beauty. The name is appropriate, since each flower lasts only one day. Some of the newer varieties have flowers that open in the evening and remain open until the evening of the following day. Many of these night blooming plants are delightfully fragrant.
Each daylily plant produces an abundance of flower buds that open over a long period of time. There are many varieties, a wide range of flower colors, and the flowers continue during the heat of the summer.
Daylilies are useful in the perennial flower border, planted in large masses,or as a ground cover on slopes, where they form a dense mat in just a few years.
The difference between diploid and tetraploid daylilies?
Plants all have a basic complement of chromosomes. Most plants are diploid. They have two identical sets of chromosomes in each cell. Polyploids are plants with more than two sets of chromosomes. A tetraploid is only one of a whole series of polyploids. Triploids have three sets of chromosomes, tetraploids have four sets of chromosomes, et cetera.
Tetraploid daylilies are heralded by some growers as having a number of advantages over diploids. In the tetraploid:
Pauline Henry, of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, created hundreds of wondrous daylilies, registering 490 with AHS during a period of 37 years. She has won an amazing number of awards including the most prestigious Stout Silver Medal in 1993 for her Siloam Double Classic, along with numerous awards for her popular miniatures. Sadly, Pauline Henry passed away Sept. 20, 2000, at the age of 92. Her legacy of beautiful cultivars will remain in gardens around the world for many generations to come.
