|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?

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

|That is a lovely Amaryllis.|

|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!|

|If our daylilies looked like that, we would call them...... amaryllis! ~Jan|

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.
