The Daylily, which is a cultivar flower, is the common name for the Hemerocallis genus and are exceptional in color and form when it comes to variety. Thousands of these registered cultivars are currently studied and appreciated by international and local societies that observe Hemerocallis. These flowers have been placed within the Xanthorrhoeacea family and the Hemerocallidoideae subfamily, having formerly been apart of the Liliaceae family which includes true lilies. Daylilies are a perennial plant, having gotten their name because they typically do not last for more than 24 hours. Usually, these flowers open early in the morning and then either by the following night while some species of the Daylily blooms at night. This genus is native to Eurasia, which includes Japan, China, and Korea. However, it's a favorite genus all over the world because of its hardiness of many kinds, and it's showy flowers. There are currently over 60,000 cultivars that are registered.

Although the Daylily is not commonly used as a cut flower informal arrangements, they make great cut flowers for other purposes because new flowers bloom on cut stems over just several days. Most species of daylily can be found as clumps, detailing their roots, crowns, leaves, and flowers. Daylilies have three sepals and three petals. Their leaves are long and lanceolate. The top is located between the roots and the leaves where the white portion is. Some daylilies have thickened roots which allows them to store water and food. Each daylily typically has six stamens which each has a two-lobed anther. After pollination, a capsule is formed on the flower which is called a pod. Daylilies are often referred to as being "the perfect perennial" because of their brilliant colors and their ability to tolerate drought while also being able to thrive in various climate zones, in addition to only requiring minimum maintenance. Daylilies that are dark in color, such as red and purple, need to be kept in the shade; While those that are lighter in color, such as those that are pink, yellow, and other pastel shades, require more sun exposure to reach their full-color potential.

Daylilies come in various shades, even more so today than back then, due to intense hybridization they can now be found in nearly every known color except for two; the bright shades of white and blue. They have a relatively short blooming period, a period which depends on the type. Some types bloom in the early spring while other types don't bloom until summer or even autumn; While most types bloom from between one to five weeks. However, there are some types that are referred to as "rebloomers" which will bloom twice within one season.
