Daylily

(Hemorocallis, Zones 3 to 10)

You’ll have blooms all summer when you plant this backyard favorite. Grow just about any shade imaginable in full sun or partial shade.  They reach 10 inches to 4 feet tall and 1½ to 4 feet wide.

Why we love it: It’s a snap to share daylilies with friends. Divide them every three to five years to revitalize and to prevent crowding.
