Hemerocallis (daylilies) produce elegant, usually trumpet-like blooms in summer. They are rugged, adaptable, vigorous perennials that endure in a garden for many years with little or no care and come in all sorts of lovely colours.

      It is stunning, sadly not mine.

  5. Are they still in flower? Ours have finished but I do love them. My favourite whose name I don’t know is a creamy one with maroon in the middle, just glorious. I love how there is a new one every day for so long. 🙂

      This was taken in Trelissick garden in late August. I have one that sounds like yours but it hasn’t flowered since moving here! I have now planted it into a bed so hoping next year brings results.

  6. I love their scent, elegant flowers. Lovely to see you’re ‘Discovered’ Jude.

      I’m afraid my lilies get eaten by slugs and snails so I am not keen on them now. But they are very beautiful flowers.
