A Museum Quality Botanical Art Print of the Yellow Day Lily as drawn by Curtis in 1787 for his very popular Botanical Magazine, this picture was plate number 19 in his first edition. Showing are a large yellow bloom with a tall green blade in behind the bloom. Curtis describes the yellow day lily thus "This genus is called Hemerocallis which in English means day lily, because of the short duration of its blossoms. This species is an inhabitant of Hungary and Siberia and consequently bears the English climate exceedingly well. The yellow day lily requires a moist soil, a situation somewhat shady and is easily propagated by parting its roots in the autumn."
