Fields of colour at Les Jardins d'Emmarocalles

Hundreds of unique daylilies and other native blooms await at this picturesque garden in Quebec


Modern daylily hybrids
Hundreds upon hundreds of hybrids have been developed from the foundation species. Helpfully, Michel and Mireille have been scrupulous in identifying their plants. If a visitor discovers one or two of those nametags have faded, a quick consultation with either of them reveals not only the name, but usually a story.

As with other types of plants, categories of daylilies obey strict rules. Technically, according to the American Hemerocallis Society, petals of spider blossom formations possess “a length-to-width ratio of at least 4 to 1 (i.e., 4:1). Length is measured with the segment fully extended. Width measurement is taken as the flower grows naturally.”
