|Design Ideas||This carefree perennial fits into almost any garden. Spot into borders as individuals or small clusters. Mass into a sea of color that functions much like groundcover. You can arrange them in a row against foundations as a mini hedge. With its strap-leafed form and flowers on long wand-like stems, Daylily offers dramatic relief between dwarf shrubs.|
|Companion Plants||Tickseed (Coreopsis); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum); Speedwell (Veronica); Coneflower (Echinacea); Evening Primrose (Oenothera)|
|Care||Thrives in organically rich loam; adapts to most soil types, provided they are well-drained. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Remove old foliage and spent blooms for a neat appearance and to promote continued bloom.|
|Lore||The name hemerocallis is derived from the Greek for beauty and day because each flower blooms for just a single day.|
