On this great spring holiday, I invite you to discover beautiful daylilies stamps and collectibles which will contribute to make your stamp collection blossom!
Without a doubt, Canada Post’s floral stamps series is definitely among the most popular ones. For this 7th issue, photographer Isabelle Toussaint shot these gorgeous daylilies at the Ottawa’s Experimental Farm, where all Canadian hybrids grow together in one area.
Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are native to Eurasia, including China, Korea and Japan. Their resistance to disease and pests, along with a level of hardiness that allows them to flourish in almost any soil type, under a variety of growing conditions, explains their popularity with gardeners and why they have been adopted widely.
The plant’s latin name comes from the Greek words hemera, meaning “day” and kalos, meaning “beautiful“. True to their name, individual flowers last a single day. However, since so many buds are produced at a time, the collective “flowerscape” remains in bloom for weeks.
Of the more 60,000 registered cultivars available, this issue features Hemerocallis fulua ‘Europa’, the common orange lily and the purple ‘Louis Lorrain’.
Pictured in the background of the souvenir sheet is the ‘Jeff Holden’, another daililly variety.

‘These stamps are also ideally suited for wedding invitations and reply cards throughout the year, whenever a splash of colour may be welcomed.’
With the above pictured prepaid postcards, it’s now so easy for Canadians to keep in touch with their friends and families no matter where in the world they reside.
A great way to mail out wordly seeds of joy to nurture our loved ones 😉
