Yes, they are everywhere: yellow, orange, butter cream, wine, brown, you can’t turn a corner without seeing a bunch of them sprouting in all directions.
The day lilies are a staple of summer.
You might already have a few clumps in your garden, and they may be spreading, like they enjoy doing, filling up all the space and growing almost on top of each other.
You may have thought of a few choice words while cleaning up the mess they make after their flowers fade and their leaves start shedding.
You may also have considered digging them up altogether at the end of summer when their remains look absolutely pathetic(by the way, good luck trying, their roots are a continuous mat of rhizomes and filaments twisted in tangled knots).
Before you do that, look at this picture.
