Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus (Lemon Lily)

Lemon Lily, Yellow Daylily, Custard Lily, Hemerocallis flava, Hemerocallis 'lilioasphodelus'


Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus (Lemon Lily) is a remarkable and stunning addition to the garden, valued for its early bloom period (late spring to early summer) and very fragrant flowers. Its sma;;, trumpet-shaped, lemon yellow flowers, 4 in. wide (10 cm), rise from a clump of arching, strap-shaped, green leaves. Each flower typically lasts no more than 24 hours, opening up in the early evening and closing early the following morning, possibly replaced by another one on the same scape (flower stalk) the next evening. The semi-evergreen foliage is also a lovely asset as it provides texture and color when the flowers are not in bloom. A great naturalizer, this Daylily multiplies happily! 

  • This clump-forming perennial will slowly spread to form colonies. It grows up to 30 in. tall (75 cm) and spreads slowly via rhizomes to 24-36 in. (60-90 cm). 
  • Easy to grow, this Daylily is an ideal choice for shrub borders or perennial beds, as ground covers on slopes or in containers near the patio.
  • Thriving in full sun or part sun in average, medium, well-drained soils, this Daylily is relatively pest free. Performs well in a wide range of soils. Tolerates poor soilsheat and summer humidity
  • Rabbit resistant, Daylilies attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
  • The best time to plant Daylilies is during the early fall or early spring.
  • After flowering, remove spent blooms and seedpods to improve appearance and encourage rebloom. When all the flowers on a scape are finished, cut off the scape close to ground level. Remove dead foliage from daylilies as they die back in the fall.
