For the finest, most delicate view of the flower, look in the morning when the Tears from Heaven daylily's blooms first open. The daylily is a popular perennial revered for its reliability, ease of growth and floral beauty. In very early summer, the hybrid tetraploid ‘Tears from Heaven' produces grapefruit-size flowers atop a tall naked stem called a scape. The six petal-like tepals have wavy edges that have a thread-line of yellow. The tepals are light pink, while the throat is yellow-green. The scapes rise from clumps of strappy green leaves that remain semi-evergreen across winter. Each blossom in the bud cluster opens in the morning but fades to yellow and shrivels up before it's 24-hours old. 'Tears from Heaven' was bred by Sandy Holmes and introduced in 2005.
Daylilies are clump-forming and spread slowly via rhizomes. The blooms are commonly held in branched clusters on long leafless stems that stand above the foliage. All daylilies are easy to grow if provided full to partial sun and average soil with good drainage. Deciduous daylilies are the hardiest and survive in the coldest reaches of their range; however they may struggle in areas with mild winters. Evergreen types grow well in all but the most tropical regions but require protection where winters are harsh and cold. Their clumps spread over time and may need to be divided every three to four years. After plants bloom, it is wise to shear back their foliage to allow for a fresh flush of growth.
