The daylily is "the perfect perennial", due to the beautiful colours, its ruggedness and ability to tolerate drought and frost. It can adapt to wide range of soil conditions as well!
A daylily is a flowering perennial plant in the genus Hemerocallis, whose name came from the Greek Word ἡμέρα (hēmera) "day" and καλός (kalos) "beautiful". The flowers typically last no more than 24 hours! Typically they open early in the morning and wither during the following night. But some of the newer varieties have flowers that open in the evening and remain open until the evening of the following day
