Daylilies originated in Asia. Their Greek name is Hemerocallis, meaning beauty of the day. They come in yellow, reddish-brown, orange and virtually, the color of the rainbow. Daylily bulbs are not actual bulbs. These are perennial bare roots during spring. This is valid as long as the plants receive plenty of hours in the sun every day. The planting process of the daylily is not complicated as they can be planted in proximity to each other. This can be a few inches apart. Usually, the planting pattern gives the impression of a large, established clump of daylily. In the process of planting daylilies, each bare root should be placed in a hole that is twice deep the bulb. This is because the roots are long. They should, therefore, be spread. Compost should be added to the soil while planting. After planting, the daylily should be watered. Caution should be practiced so as not to water the daylily excessively. This is because too much watering will rotten the root. The soil should be kept damp until an appearance of the flowers is noticed. In the case of insufficient rainfall, an individual should water the plants once in every week. Blooming should occur with time. The flowers produce fragrance and blooming beautiful colors.
