Orange Daylily

Hemerocallis fulva

Description:

The daylilies have been blooming for a few weeks in the shade along a fence by our garden. They are already about 5 feet tall and we can see the pollen on the flower.

Habitat:

They are along a fence in the shade for most of the morning.

Notes:

This is a Glenn O Swings 4th Grade group (The Black Stingers): 1. What kind of pollinators use the pollen on the flower? 2. How much nectar can one of the flowers make? 3. How long do the lilies live?

What kind of experiment could you do to measure the nectar from a flower? Do you think the pollinators know what type of flower provides a lot, a little or no nectar?

Do you know what this flower is called? It's called a daylilly because the flowers only last one day!
There are lots of different colors of these flowers. It's all about the chemistry of the flower, but why do plants have big showy flowers? What fo they hope happens? They want to be pollinated! What kind of flowers get the most attention?
