One of the absolute best and hardiest garden perennials. The nocturnal, sweetly fragrant flowers open in early evening and close around 11 am or noon the next day. The plant habit is extremely attractive and the scapes are numerous with an excellent bud count. This is a great daylily for people looking for an addition to a mixed perennial bed!

Is it the case that there have been not registered offspring of Hemerocallis citrina?? Given its reputed fragrance that seems strange. Is it infertile??
