about the dye plant -

day lily –

We have a few different colors of day lilies in the garden - a bright orange (which produces a yellow dye), and a deep red. I used the deep red lilies for this dye bath. I was surprised to see such a muted tone because the liquid leaking from the flower heads was a dark purple.
