Daylily emerging out of the ground

Another sign of spring, daylily (Hemerocallis fulva) emerging out of the ground.  Often daylilies escape from cultivation and become established along roadsides and unattended areas.  Once they get started they will persist for many years.  If you see these distinctive sprouts in the landscape this time of year the daylily flowers will be there in summer.  Picture taken March 14, 2012.
