Now this is the kind of flower that anyone can grow; no knowledge of gardening required. Daylilies are tough guys that tolerate a lot of poor conditions. They don't care much about the soil or lack of water and they are not troubled by your regular garden pests or diseases.
The best feature about these gorgeous flowers is that they are perennials and come back every year to our gardens without any fuss. There is one caveat though, just like their name, most of them open up in the morning and die at the end of the day. The good news is that there are approximate 8-10 flower buds in each stem, therefore, you will always be enjoying at least one flower per day for about a couple of weeks while they are productive during the season, that is early summer.
One last thing, I am not even going to attempt mention the myriad of varieties available to you now. They come in all colors and all sizes. I assure you that they are going to become your favorite flower, smile. If you don't have one, run to the garden center now and get your share of Daylilies. The more the merrier!
