Top Daylilies - A list of Your Favorite Hemerocallis

Early Season Daylilies, Midseason Daylilies, Late Season Daylilies, Everblooming Daylilies


Often called the 'perfect perennial' because of its numerous qualities: showy flowers, wide array of vibrant colors, drought tolerance, heat stress immunity, ability to grow in most hardiness zones and low care requirements, Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are a remarkable and stunning addition to the garden.

More than 60 000 daylilies are registered with the American Hemerocallis Society (AHS), and well in excess of 1000 new ones are introduced annually.

If you were to ask 100 different people which are their top 20 favorite daylilies, you might end up with a list of 2000 varieties.

AHS conducts a popularity poll each year among its members to determine the favorite daylilies from each region. The goal of this poll is to provide a true view of which daylilies perform well in a given area and which are favored by gardeners.

Here is a compilation of the top favorite daylilies in North America.
