The most famous and widespread are three species forms. Daylily brown-yellow (Hemerocallis fulva) with pointed linear leaves, growing in sunny areas and in partial shade, forms powerful clumps. Above them, peduncles with orange flowers are clearly visible, swaying regularly on peduncles up to a meter high.

Daylily yellow (H. flava)Yellow daylily (Hemerocallis flava) resembles the previous species, while its leaves are more prone to drooping as they grow back. Corollas of flowers with a diameter of about 10 cm have a sunny yellow color.
