This early-flowering daylily constantly produces masses of fragrant, long-lasting, bright custard-yellow, lily-like flowers, which open in the late afternoon, and last for just one day. Like most hemerocallis, it is robust and easy to grow. Also called Hemerocallis flava, the "Lemon Day-lily" is found right across China and Europe. The Greek term 'hemerocallis' means 'beautiful for a day', and daylilies benefit from regular deadheading to prolong flowering and prevent their unsightly deadheads from dominating the scene. This true lemon lily, is an absolute treasure. The flowers of some daylillies, including Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus are edible and are used in Chinese cuisine.
Sow seeds at any time in good loamy compost. Keep in a cool place. Seeds sometimes inevitably only germinate in the spring so please be patient.
