When to plant daylilies: for colorful, elegant flowers

Knowing when to plant daylilies is vital for success. With large, sumptuous flowers in a range of rich, fiery colors and attractive arching leaves, daylilies (Hemerocallis) are essential perennials for the summer backyard. Their sophisticated blooms, which are reminiscent of amaryllis or lilies, suggest they might be tricky to grow, but far from it – in fact they are easy, hardy plants that anyone can manage.

One thing you might know if you are growing daylilies is that, as the name suggests, each flower lasts for just one day. But daylilies produce such a generous succession of blooms over many weeks that the plants are always a plentiful mass of flowers.
