One of the easiest and most rewarding of all perennials for the sunny garden, the Daylily (Hemerocallis) is long-lived, blooms for months, and needs almost no care. Great for mass plantings, accents, and edging beds, driveways, or walks. Lack of fussiness makes Daylily a long-standing "regular" for mailbox plantings!
