Top Garden Daylilies

The All-American Daylily Selection Council has screened over 6,000 varieties at more than 30 sites nationwide. The 10 listed below are the cream of the crop. All grow well in at least five contiguous hardiness zones, increase by 60 to 100 percent each year, and have attractive, spreading foliage. All bloom for two months or more. The range in blooming periods ("Days in bloom") reflects the fact that flowering is concentrated in the North and spread out in the South.
