Daylily Facts
You can not kill a daylily they just don't die. They will double in size and come up every spring. Sometimes later if they are a late bloomer. No instructions are needed just plant the tubers and they'll come up each and every year. 

We have been planting daylilies for 20 years and have never lost a single plant ! I would only tell you if you live in the upper portion of the United States only buy from Northern growers. Plants grown in the south do not do well in the colder states. Northern growers have plants that will take the cold harsh winters.

Daylilies are drought resistant & disease resistant. 

Daylilies belong to the genus Hemerocallis. Hemerocallis is a Greek word, hemera; meaning day and kallos; meaning beauty. Hence the term "beauty for a day."

Daylilies bloom from late June through early September of each year. Each daylily plant produces numerous buds that will open during the blooming season.

Daylilies grow best in full sun. Although daylilies will adapt to light shade areas, they do best with five to six hours of full sun and will produce more flowers.

Daylilies are a hardy flower and will grow in any soil and are highly drought resistant.

The ideal time to plant daylilies is in early spring or early fall. Daylily stems should be cut to four or five inches prior to plant and the hole should be deep enough to accommodate the bulb and the roots without bending them.

There are over thirty-five thousand named and registered daylilies.

Large clumps of flowers may produce in access of two-hundred flowers in a season. 

Flower stock is sold by the double fan which is simply a way for us to measure root stock sold.

Tetraploid (Tet):
Having four sets of chromosomes in each cell of the plant (in daylilies, forty-four chromosomes altogether). That is twice the number found in the sex cells (sperm and egg).
