Semi-evergreen.

About Daylily

Garden favorites whose abundant flowers each last one day. Very easy to grow. Bloom times are early (late June–early July), mid-season (late July) or late (mid– to late August). Extended bloom means flowers last into evening. Rebloomers will bloom again, later. Tetraploid plants are huskier and have larger flowers. Be sure to plant your bareroot daylilies soon after purchase.
