Daylilies - Hemerocallis

These plants come in so many colours - in fact, almost every colour except blue. I use them as background fillers (the plant can get a bit ratty into autumn), and they add a great height and colour to any kind of garden, be it perennial of shrub.
These are just a few I have in my own garden.

They are, of course, related to the Lily family. The following are some of the Asiatic Lilies I have flowering in my garden right now. They will be succeeded by many other species until late autumn.

And of course the Martagon Lily. Possibly my favourite. I have them in pots so
I can bring them right up to the kitchen window. They are fascinating close-up.
They last for weeks and weeks.
