Daylilies are well-loved, and some gardeners call them “perfect perennials.” These plants produce grass-like foliage that arches gracefully toward the ground. From this foliage grows tall, sturdy stems that produce clusters of flower buds. These open to the famous lily-like blossoms.

The only downside is that their blossoms only last one day. There are reblooming varieties available that lengthen the overall bloom time of your plant, which is a great trait if you love daylilies. 

With so many varieties available at garden centers and especially through online plant markets, it can be very overwhelming to select a daylily that is perfect for your garden. In this article, I have listed 63 daylily varieties that I find beautiful and accessible for gardeners. Let’s dig in!
