HEMEROCALLIS. (Liliaceae). One of the great joys of spring is the wavy, fresh green tips of Hemerocallis leaves,
poking through the snow along with snowdrops and the blood red tips of Peonies. In summer their deep-throated flowers make voluptuous

banding and edges, (camp and gorgeous as if snipped out of velvet and silk by John Galliano) are fit to strut the cat walk.
