Modern daylilies are arguably the perfect summer flowers. I cannot think of another perennial plant that gives so much for so little. Easy to plant and care for, their clumping growth habit enables the plants to cover bare ground and crowd out weeds, saving you the work of weeding.
The daylily's ribbon-like leaves are naturally insect resistant and remain attractive throughout the growing season. But you don't want to fill your borders with daylilies because of their foliage. You want flowers, and although each bloom lasts for just one day, as the plant's name suggests, a mature clump can produce hundreds of blooms each season.
These lilyesque blooms come in every color imaginable and range in size from 2 and a half inches to more than 6 inches on plants which range in height from 1-4 feet.
When Do Daylilies Bloom?
There are varieties that flower from May through October. Once-blooming types will flower for several weeks. Reblooming daylilies bloom in flushes. Some, for a few weeks in summer and another few weeks in the fall; others, like the popular 'Stella D'Oro', will begin to flower in May and repeat until stopped by frost.
Ground Cover Dayliles
For summer-long color, plant dwarf, reblooming types. Daylilies make an ideal ground cover for sloping terrain. Their roots are strong enough to prevent erosion.
Space plants 18 inches apart in full sun to medium shade. Daylilies with pastel-colored blooms perform best in shady areas.
