Daylilies are a perennial favorite. The daylily’s scientific name, Hemerocallis, is a combination of the Greek words for beauty and day – a fitting description for a blossom that opens at dawn and withers by dusk. Fortunately, each stem produces numerous buds that bloom at different times, allowing visitors to enjoy daylilies for most of June and July.
The Garden displays more than 2,000 specimens, with over 1,800 in the Jenkins Daylily Garden. Of those hundreds of plants, there are over a dozen species represented and over 1,700 different hybrids. The Jenkins Daylily Garden is a sanctioned American Hemerocallis Society Display Garden.
