Stella d'Oro Daylillies

One Day Blooms, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, Fay Terry ©2012

You may be familiar with the Stella D'oro brand of cookies and breadsticks which was started in 1930 by an Italian immigrant in New York City. The name means "star of gold" in Italian. These lilies bear the same name and they are truly a star perennial.
Although each flower lasts for just one day, they re-bloom from May to July. They are deer resistant and prefer full sun to part shade. They are very popular here because they can take the heat and are drought resistant. When it comes time to thin them, you can give some to a friend.


  1. Rich color and great shapes- love this Fay!
