Are daylilies different from Asiatic or Oriental lilies?

Gardengail(7a)January 1, 2013

Yes. Daylilies are the common name of plants in the genus Hemerocallis. They are a member of the Liliaceae family, as are true lilies (the asiatics and orientals), onions and hyacinths. So they are related, but very different plants. Lilies are bulbs. Daylilies have long, slender fibrous roots with tubers attached to the roots which store food for the plant.
