Yellow Daylily, Hemerocallis is another great daylily.

This perennial plant is known for its light yellow, circular flowers and long, green leaves. Each flower only lasts for one day, blooming up to 16 hours at a time. Once the flowers wither, they are usually replaced by a new one the next day. Its thick roots make it a hearty plant, allowing it to grow in everything from regular garden soil to one's rich with organic matter. They prefer full to partial sunlight and do best when provided with plenty of moisture. Placing mulch around the roots will help with moisture retention.
Most plants grow to be around 16 inches tall, with some getting up to 3 feet. The width is similar, making them the perfect addition to any landscape. They can also be grown in containers and placed throughout the garden for a gorgeous pop of color. They thrive in both Northern and Southern regions but prefer zones 3-9. Their light fragrance makes them a great cut flower as well. To reduce crowding, the plants can be dug up and separated every few years, typically in late Fall or early Spring.
