means "beauty for a day"
and describes well the bloom cycle of daylilies, since each daylily
flower only lasts one day. Due to multiple buds creating various stages

Pennsylvania so most daylily shows are scheduled in July.

by the Pittsburgh Iris & Daylily Society at the Galleria in Mt.
Lebanon, Pa we
photographed an array of award-winning daylilies entered in the
judging competition. With a wide range of flower colors, types and
sizes, daylilies offer something for every garden. Their hardiness
and vigor make them stalwarts in most home flower borders.
