I never realized that daylilies.....

moved with the sun. I had a seedling set pods but the nights are getting really cold so I thought it better to bring it in and let it bloom. I put it in a south window. When it bloomed, the bloom was facing the east side but later when I went back into the sunroom I noticed the scape was now facing the west. I didn't realize daylilies would move like sunflowers do. Now I have another seedling from the same group that I also brought in and the scape is moving the same way. Go figure. Just thought it was interesting. Marg

I have wondered about this too Marg.
It always seemed the blooms in some of my flower beds were facing the back. Then I realized they were facing the direction of the sun coming up. One bed is very long and faces to the north. The blooms follow the sun all day facing the back of the garden as the sun moves. I just can't change the location of the beds!
