gardening in Nova Scotia, with an occasional maritime musing

The latin name for daylily, hemerocallis, means "beauty for a day". Each flower blooms for one day only. Fortunately each scape produces enough blooms to keep the plant blooming for weeks or much longer. The daylily is generally a hardy garden plant. There are thousands of hybrids to chose from, with new ones added each year.
