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. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to their vibrant colors.
Daylilies have been called the perfect perennial. They will grow almost anywhere in most hardiness zone. They are low maintenance, have showy blooms, come in lots of colors and can be used in a variety of landscape and flower bed plantings from borders to containers.
