Reblooming Daylilies - Hemerocallis
They might be called perfect perennials, but dayliles do seem to have one big downside; their short-flowering season. Unless, that is, they are reblooming daylilies. These relatively new hybrids, which began appearing in the 1990s, will follow a first flush of flowers with many more sometimes all summer long right up to the first frost.
Sometimes, they are called everblooming daylilies, recurrrent blooming daylilies, continuous blooming daylilies, repeat-flowering daylilies, or even - mistakenly - extended daylilies, which actually should refer only to daylilies whose flowers open for at least 16 hours a day.
