Orange Daylily Season

Gold Brimming Over to Form a Sea

In old times, daylilies were called "tiger lilies" or "St. John's wort". In traditional Chinese custom, they were also called, "Mother flowers". They are a common ingredient in home cooking. They have a high protein and iron content, and are very nutritious. In addition, they are effective in soothing the nerves. The daylily flowers are also known as "beauty for a day" because they bloom in the morning and wither in the evening. Once the daylilies

bloom, they lose their harvest value, therefore, in the past, the farmers would harvest the daylilies before they bloomed. Because in recent years, Mainland China’s daylilies have pushed Taiwan's daylilies out of the market, local daylily production become non-profitable. Consequently, many local farmers have simply given up harvesting the daylilies, and have moved in the direction of placing equal stress on recreational farming.

The production season for high-mountain daylilies is in August. Chihke Mountain, in Yuli Township, and Sixty-Stone Mountain, in Fuli Township, which are both located in Hualien County, are two of the country's three high-mountain daylily production areas. Large-scale topical flowering-season activities are sponsored in these areas. This allows tourists from all over to enjoy the mountains that are covered in a sea of golden flowers, and to relish the beautiful scene of the sun shining on the daylilies. It also allows the visitors who appreciate daylilies to join a popular tourism route, which is emerging as yet another kind of fascinating activity for the East Rift Valley National Scenic Area.
