Seasons Compatible Daylilies.






Daylilies are perennial plants, native to Eurasia, including China, Korea, and Japan, and this genus is popular worldwide because of the showy flowers and hardiness of many kinds. There are over 60,000 registered cultivars. Hundreds of cultivars have fragrant flowers, and more scented cultivars are appearing more frequently in northern hybridization programs. Some cultivars rebloom later in the season, particularly if their capsules, in which seeds are developing, are removed.

A normal, single daylily flower has three petals and three sepals. The centermost part of the flower, called the throat, usually has a different color than more distal areas of its petals. Each flower usually has six stamens, each with a two-lobed anther. After successful pollination, a flower forms a capsule (often erroneously called a pod).

The daylily is often called "the perfect perennial," due to its dazzlings colors, ability to tolerate drought, capability to thrive in many zones, and requiring very little care. Daylilies thrive in full sun, although certain daylilies require partial shade, depending on color. Lighter shades, such as yellow, pink, and pastels require the sun to bring out all of their color. Darker daylilies, such as some red and purple flowers, need shade because their darker colors absorb heat.

Daylilies have a relatively short blooming period, depending on the type of daylily. There are a variety of different dayliles; some of which will bloom in early spring, while other wait until the summer or even fall. Most dayliles bloom for one to five weeks, although there is a type of daylily known as a rebloomer, which will bloom twice in one season.

The Daylilies are Seasons compatible and will change with the seasons and go dormant in the winter.  The seasonal changes only work if the Seasons EP is installed. They can also be used without Seasons, but only the summer state will appear.

    1. Thanks for the compliment. If you like seasonal plants, you're in for a treat! I'm going to be sharing a lot more of them in the near future. I've made all of the non-seasonal plants that I had uploaded to Affinity Sims "Seasons Compatible" and I'll be uploading them shortly.
