The daylily (Hemerocallis) is a popular garden plant known for its orange, trumpet-shaped flowers. This perennial grows best in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 2 through 10. With proper care, your daylilies will thrive.
Daylilies are easy to grow, according to Floridata, as long as they are kept in well-drained soil that is neutral to slightly acidic. The soil should be kept moist, especially during the growing season.
Daylilies thrive when planted in full sunlight, but they can survive in partial shade. Among the numerous cultivars of daylily, those with paler flowers do better with some shade.
Daylilies may be grown in mixed gardens or—to give your yard a wild or natural look—by themselves. According to Floridata, daylilies also make good border plants.
