The Daylily is probably one of the most rewarding and carefree of all flowering perennials. Their proper name is Hemerocallis. They are very hardy, can adapt to a wide variety of environments, and are rarely bothered by garden pests.
With minimal care daylilies will perform well most anywhere. They are drought tolerant once established. They are also deer and rabbit resistant.
Pretty much all of the Daylily plant is edible. The Chinese have been dining on this plant for generations. You can stir fry, boil, fry, steam or eat the tubers, leaves, buds or blossoms raw.
