Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus syn. flava is a very early blooming species daylily. It's flowers are a light yellow, funnel-shaped, 7- 8 cm long and are sweetly scented. Scapes have 6-9 flowers. Spreads underground. It can be propagated by division or seed (not pollinated with other varieties of daylilies). May be known as an heirloom, but heirloom does not necessarily mean species. Foliage is fine, almost grassy, and of a good green. One of the very first daylillies to be registered on the AHS site!
