The tawny day lilies–the traditional flower for Mother’s Day–do not belong to the Liliaceae family (the true lilies)  but they do look like one. Once planted, day lilies need little care, as they just  keep on growing new shoots which produce floriferous flower stalks. They are a sight to behold in any garden–sprawling green clumps with brightly-colored, large flowers. Although a  day lily flower lasts only for a day, it gets replaced by another one right next day. That’s why they are one of the most favourite garden plants of horticulturists and garden enthusiasts.
