I have always thought that there should be some kind of connection between Amaryllis and Daylilies!

Here is why.

But why do no daylilies look like this?

I am glad I don't have to grow my daylilies in pots and put them in my basement for the winter !

At least that is what my Mom used to do with her amaryllis.

They are beautiful though!

Not sure if their terminology is the same or not, but I find it interesting that the petals are small than the sepals. The sepals (back 3 petals?) are of importance whereas in daylilies the sepals are sometimes an after thought! Blinking

I am trying one that is suppose to be hardy in zone 6. A red St Joeseph I think it is called. I need to journal more lol.

I have had them over the yrs and love them but not the tropical babying.
