Daylily

Hemerocallis fulva

[hemerocallis_fulva]

Daylilies are ubiquitous at Monticello and surrounding areas and are often mistaken as a native plant. They are originially from China and have been in cultivation for centuries for their elegant and showy flowers, which are also edible. Despite their success here, they are sterile, spreading vegetatively (instead of by seed) with bits of root travelling and taking hold.
