In our area, the daylily bloom season is just about ready to begin and will continue throughout the summer.

Traditionally, the peak season for many of the daylily cultivars is in the first part of July, but with today’s modern daylilies, many will rebloom and others will not bloom until late July and August. With some research before making their daylily selections, local gardeners could have a long bloom season in their gardens, thanks to the many hybridizers and their specialized goals in improving this outstanding perennial.
