Orange Day Lily is a Vibrant Orange Blooming Perennial
Orange Day lily is a native flower of Asia but has become so increase in North American that one of its names is the “Common Lily.” Because they do so well in wet soil, daylilies can be planted in those areas that other flowers may not be suited for. Just because they are “common” doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plant a few in your flower garden. These are hardy little beauties and do well from zones three to nine. They take little care and pretty much fend for themselves. The flowers are orange and tend to be large, some as big as three and a half inches in diameter. The daylily leaves are long and slender, somewhat like grass, and are from twenty-four to thirty-six inches high and droop about halfway up. This fact alone makes for a pretty addition to any flower garden. Daylily, flowers are held on their stalks semi-erect without sagging downward. Each flower has three petals and three sepals that are very similar in looks in a beautiful warm orange color that roll out and under at the tips. The throat of the flower is yellow, around which is a bit of red. Because the fibrous root system forms clumps of leaves and flowers, they exclude other plants, so weeding is minimal.
