The Q&A Archives: Daylillies

Question: Is there a specific type of daylily that blooms in early-mid summer? I have several in my yard and they've all finished blooming around mid-spring. Also, How can you tell what will be re-bloomers and one-time bloomers. Mine all seem to bloom once a season. Thanks.

Answer: You're right, there are daylilies that bloom early, mid- and late-season. Some of the early season bloomers will bloom again late in the season, but in order to have flowers from your daylilies throughout the spring, summer and fall, you'll want to plant some of each variety. Some of the bloom times overlap. Here are some suggestions:
