I wasn’t expecting much from this flower when it started to sprout out of the ground early this Spring. I really had no idea what it even was. It looked kind of like on of those Spider Plants I used to have inside when I was a kid.
The plant started blooming the other day and Laura mentioned that it was a Daylily. I think it looks pretty good.
Here is a little background on the Daylily from the Wikipedia…
“Daylilies can be grown in USDA plant hardiness zones 1 through 11, making them some of the most adaptable landscape plants. Most of the cultivars have been developed within the last 100 years. The large-flowered clear yellow ‘Hyperion’, introduced in the 1920s, heralded a return to gardens of the once-dismissed daylily, and is still widely available.
Daylily breeding has been a specialty in the United States, where their heat- and drought-resistance made them garden standbys during the later 20th century. New cultivars have sold for thousands of dollars; but sturdy and prolific introductions soon reach reasonable prices.”
