I found a very nice flower in the garden of my friend's neighbours
(sounds a bit funny)
I did only a picture, but didn't ask the name
here is the picture
I like this flower, so I want to have it in my garden
so if someone know what is the flower in the pic, please, let me know
It's a common daylily (Hemerocallis). Even though they're not true lilies,
not bulbs, don't have dark spots on the petals and have a different habit,
some people often confuse them with tiger lilies (Lilium tigrinum). Such are
the vagaries of vernaculars.
However, established plants will have a group of buds at the end of a
stalk. As one flower dies, another blooms. When the last bud opens and
the flower then dies, you should cut the stalk. A new stalk will appear
in about a month or so.
After a while, a daylily plant will form a clump of plants, each with a
flower stalk. From some varieties, you will eventually have flowers
continuously from late spring, through the summer, and into the fall.
Actually, a few of mine have flower buds right now; I expect them to
bloom in about a week or less. But that's what happens when daytime
winter temperatures are in the 70s (F). :)
Note that some daylily varieties might bloom only 2-3 times a year. The
rest of the year, they are merely masses of green foliage. The photo
resembles a variety in my garden that is like that. When it blooms,
it's majestic; but that is not often. The ones in my garden that seem
to have flowers all summer are a golden yellow.

I'm going to try the stalk cutting. Usually don't get more than a few
weeks of flowers.
May be different here in mid east coast where my daylillies
essentially die back in the winter.
They share a bank with vinca minor and compliment each other very
well. When the daylillies grow they do so faster than the
neighborhood deer can eat them.
I think some people may eat them too ;)
