  • Description

  • Notes

These summer-blooming perennials form clumps with large, grass-like leaves. Its showy flowers, resembling lilies, are borne in clusters on stems held well above the foliage
Propagation by division may be performed in spring or autumn. The cultivars that are raised from a seed will not grow true to type. If isolated from other day lilies, the species has a chance of coming true.
