LoreThe daylily originated in China and can be found in literature as early as 2697 BC. It arrived in Europe by the first century AD but failed to be of much interest. Because daylily does not easily cross-pollinate, breeding did not ensue. The key to pollination was just discovered in 1921 by the American, A. B. Stout. Since that time the number of cultivars has reached nearly 40,000. In China, the daylily was considered a food and medicinal plant.
Average Size at MaturityFoliage reaches 2 ft. tall and wide; flowers reach 3 to 4 ft. tall.

Design IdeasThis carefree perennial fits into almost any garden. Spot into perennial borders as individuals or small clusters. Mass into a sea of color that functions much like groundcover. You can arrange them in a row against foundations as a mini hedge. With its strap-leafed form and flowers on long wand-like stems, Daylily offers dramatic relief between dwarf shrubs.
