Day-lily


The orange day-lily (Hemerocallis fulva) are in full bloom. This year more than ever. Perhaps the warm weather does the trick. It comes originally from Asia but are now grown in many gardens around the world. Can be very tall, up to 1,5 meters. It has gone rouge and is now considered an invasive species. Oh yes, there is a human factor. Dumping them on the road side has given them the name ditch-lily where they spread and suffocates native species.

Always think twice before you dump, ha de Gött!

  1. I appreciate this post and have also noticed many of the wildflowers in my area are also invasive species. I guess that is why they are so prolific. Thanks for sharing!

  3. We have so many invasive species. Many are simply called weeds. Scotch thistles, blackberries, something farmers call Paterson’s Curse but it probably has a nicer name. But, due to our colonial history, I suspect the introduction was a deliberate attempt to “bring a piece of home”. Unfortunately they’ve run rampant. It’s one of those things. Oh and loads of grasses too.
