Daylily Plant FeaturesPerhaps the most popular perennial flower on the planet, daylily comes in an almost unlimited array of spectacular colors and bi-colors. Most grow 18 to 30 inches tall and produce waves of flowers. Each flower lasts but a day, but the plants more than make up for it in flower production. Daylilies come in early-, mid-, and late-flowering types as well as re-bloomers that flower on and off all season. These rugged sun-lovers can grow most anywhere and are so tough you can almost drive a car over them and they'll pop right back. Once established, daylilies need very little care to keep them fit. Hardy from zones 3-8.

Daylily Growing InstructionsDaylilies have simple demands -- lots of sun and an occasional drink from the garden hose. These hardy perennials will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and have few insect or disease problems. Give them a little slow-release granular fertilizer in spring when new growth appears and then leave them alone. Mulch daylilies to keep grassy weeds at bay that can be hard to distinguish next to the plant's narrow foliage.
Note: The buds and flowers of some daylily varieties have a sweet/spicy flavor and can be incorporated into salads and stir fry. Most of the plant, however, is not recommended for human or animal consumption.
