There is such a variety of bloom style, color and temperament. and they are very easy to grow.

Beginning and seasoned gardeners love them, and other than a bit of deadheading, they require very little care.

There are so many types that it is hard to know what you have in your garden. This daylily photo gallery should help you out.  If you have ever wondered what the daylily that you purchased is called, check these out!

Do you love to grow daylilies? So do I. This daylily photo gallery gives names of many varieties of this gorgeous perennial

If you have ever taken day trips, I’m sure you have seen huge patches of yellow daylilies growing along the interstate highways.

These Stella D’oro daylilies are the most common type of daylily available.

But why stop there when there are so many more varieties to choose from?

What are Daylilies?

Daylilies are a perennial plant. They grow from a bulb and naturalize to increase in size each year. They bloom all summer long, in contrast to Asiatic, Oriental and Easter lilies, which have a more limited bloom time.

Once they have been planted and tended for the first year, they are very easy to manage each year and will give you a long bloom time in late spring and summer.


Daylilies are one of the easiest plants to grow.  I have many colors and types in my garden beds. They come in many shapes from frilly double petals to spidery types.

The bloom time varies from early to mid and late season.  Some types will re-bloom for long lasting summer color.

Even though each daylily is grown in much the same as the others, their colors and types vary widely, as this gallery will show.

I hope that you enjoy this virtual tour of daylilies. I would also love it if you would share photos of your favorite daylily variety along with the name.  Just upload the photo to your comments and I’ll include it in my gallery with a shout out to you.

This daylily gallery is a work in progress. I’ll be adding to it periodically as I find new daylilies to label for you. Be sure to check back often to see updates to the page.

Daylily Growing Conditions

Absolute conditions depend on the variety, but as a general rule of thumb, follow these tips for easy care growing of daylilies.

Sunlight:  Full Sun. Will tolerate some light shade conditions.

Soil: Well draining soil. Add organic matter such as compost when planting.

Watering:  Keep evenly moist the first year as the plant is getting established.  After that, they can tolerate less water.

Propagation:  Best way is division after the third year to get more plants for free.

Bloom time: Early, Mid and Late season depending on variety.  Some will re-bloom.

Many daylilies are very similar in look but have different names. I have several different ones in my garden that all look the same. It is hard to name them unless you have the name at time of purchase.
