If there's a "sure bet" perennial, it must be the daylily. They thrive from Minnesota to Florida they tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions, are not troubled by diseases or pests
In groups of 3 or 5, daylilies are ideal for landscape plantings, especially when paired with ornamental grasses and small shrubs. Daylilies are also the perfect plant for mass plantings alo
Once mature, the daylily can grow as tall as 5 feet and 4 feet wide.
Daylilies flower best when planted in full sun, on moist, yet well-drained soil. Water well when first planting, and then a 1-3 times a week until established.
No daylily is native to North America; most hail from Asia. But that old orange Asian species, called Hemerocallis fulva, is still popular, and it's everywhere.

, A plant that is simply beautiful
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has devised a system to provide gardeners with a basic guide to plant hardiness – how much winter cold a plant can withstand. The Hardiness Zone Map system divides the United States and Canada into numbered zones based on lowest average winter temperature. Even within a zone, different micro-climates exist, such as large urban areas which may be warmer or land situated at different elevations.
