daylily

One of the easiest plants to grow, you can throw them on the ground, kick some soil on them and they will take hold.

Daylilies as the name suggests have very short individual bloom times. Fortunatly as one flower withers another takes it's place.

They tolerate long drought conditions but you should be nice to them and provide a drink now and then.

Daylily
common daylily
The common older variety (orange) is a aggressive spreader that has escaped from gardens and are now prevalent throughout the northeast. Like orange snowbanks, huge drifts of common daylilies line the roadsides of the north country. Newer varieties are much less aggressive and are easily kept under control.
 
Daylilies are a favorite food for deer. Early spring growth is usually eaten before it really gets a chance. Then later in the season the deer return for the flowers and buds. Daylilies
