Vigorous day lilies have longer blooming period than lilies
These days, people buy plants by the pictures. But there are features that pictures do not tell - the length of blooming period.
I have always thought day lilies would have shorter blooming period than lilies. Then I noticed the old and huge day lilies in our neighbourhood. The plants is care free. It is an old cultivar with normal shaped flowers. These bloom continuously for two months now; and the number of flowers open daily is in the hundreds.
In comparison, the lilies look much smaller and bloom for a shorter time :-) The lilies also need more care :-)
