Great landscaping daylilies.

                                 Mister Butters (Judy Davisson)

                                 Banana Smoothie (George)

      So, what defines a great landscaping daylily?  In my humble opinion, a daylily that has great bud count, branching, and visibility from a distance.  The scape must be sturdy and tall.  It's one of those daylilies that when you look across a field your eye is drawn in to that particular daylily.  Yellow daylilies are probably the most visible in the landscape, especially from a distance, but I have included some other colors below that I would consider as great landscape daylily colors  I'm sorry if I forgot any of your favorites, but hopefully this will give you some ideas of some wonderful daylilies to add to your landscape or garden.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this segment.  Not sure what I will show next, but always
want to show you new daylilies and of course the old ones that perform well in any garden.
