These hardy perennials have large and attractive blooms that are similar to lily flowers. They are very easy to grow, many of the forms are tolerant of almost total neglect and will still be seen thriving in a neglected garden long after most of the other cultivated perennial species have been choked out by the invading native plants. All parts of the plants are edible though it is the flowers that are most frequently used. Daylilies also have a number of other uses and, all in all, deserve to become a standard plant in edible and ornamental gardens.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
