Daylily

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

These widely grown perennials boast large, trumpet-shape flowers in a range of colors.

One of the old-time names for this tough perennial was “ditch lily,” owing to the fact that it grew rampantly in unmowed ditches—even those in shade. It’s better known as tiger lily or daylily. Today, cultivated varieties are grown throughout much of the country. Daylilies are beloved for their large, colorful flowers and ease of cultivation. The name refers to the resemblance of the flower to the unrelated lily (Lilium spp.) and from the fact that flowers last only a day.

Good companions include yarrow (Achillea), salvia, liatris, penstemon, veronica, lavender, coreopsis, and purple coneflower (Echinacea).
