Longest-blooming Daylilies


  • Daylilies produce beautiful blooms in a variety of colors such as yellow, red, orange, pink and purple. Each bloom lasts for a day — a characteristic that gives the plant its name — but most daylilies produce a succession of day-long blooms over a period of time, creating a colorful garden. Some daylilies continue to offer their succession of blooms for longer periods than others, putting on a show from spring until fall.

  • Calico Jack is a reblooming daylily that produces flowers from June through September. The flowers are yellow with purplish red about midway down the petal toward the center. Calico Jacks do well in hardiness zones 4 through 9, and love the morning sun. The plant is drought-tolerant and prefers soil that is dry to only slightly damp. It reaches a height of about 2 feet.

    Happy Returns

  • Happy Returns provides multiple pale yellow flowers, and reblooms throughout the summer and into early fall. The plant prefers damp soil and full sun for around six hours a day.
