Hemeorcallis Lies and Lipstick (Daylily)

Soft pink petals with a rosy-red eye and edging with a green throat rise high above full green foliage. Slow growth rate.

The common name comes from the fact that each flower only lasts for no more than 24 hours- they open in the morning and wither before the following evening- some to be replaced by another flower on the same scape.
