I was walking around my yard earlier and came across these Day Lily buds. They are tiny clusters about to bloom yellow blooms. I am so excited. Spring really is close. We are suppose to get rain this week. That should help these buds open up to a cluster of yellow sunshine! When they start blooming, they will bloom one per day. That is why they are called Day Lilies.
Day Lilies belong to the genus Hemerocallis. 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 day lily 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.
I will keep you updated on the progress.
