Daylilies

Daylilies are some of the most carefree of all flowering perennials. They can thrive in almost any type of soil, and are rarely troubled by insects or disease. The plants grow quickly, are long lived and historically have been shared from the gardens of family and friends across the country. Their dense root system reduces soil erosion and can choke out most weeds. Even when they’re not in bloom, the lush foliage makes a good backdrop for other flowers. We carry a variety of different colors and heights of Daylilies here at the Nursery. Ask your Creekside Nursery sales representative about the best ones for your planting needs!
