Daylilies are tough perennials originating in China, Japan, and central Europe.  Daylily hybridization first began in England around 1890. 'Hyperion' is a handsome cultivar developed in 1925 by Franklin B. Mead, an American daylily breeder in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  In 1939, Lamb Nurseries in Spokane, Washington, described this cultivar as "[g]enerally conceded to be the finest yet introduced."  It was commonly used in colonial revival gardens of the early 20th century as a substitute for the true Lemon Lily, Hemerocallis flava
