Daylilies, a Rainbow of Color

October 9, 2012

Daylilies come in a seemingly endless variety of colors and color combinations. Describing the actual color of a daylily can vary from person to person; we may see color differently or describe colors using different terms.

Thanks, Char for great explanations of the terms!

I have always been a little confused about "bands" but I understand now!

I tip my hat to you. This was such a fun article to do. Having the ATP database images to use for illustration of the definitions was a huge help for giving a visual as well as written description. The hard part was picking which images to use out of the many beautiful examples in the database!

I think part of my problem has been that I haven't had a great visual to view when reading the description. It all makes sense now! I was so confused about some of these things, but you cleared them up!
