Good: I have no experience with daylilys. I bought 6 "Plum Perfects" last year, planted them facing South, where they get blasted by the Sun, and also the Wind. They bloomed the first year.
This year, they have tripled in size, and now are blooming, about 10 stalks per clump.
The most impressive attribute is how they compliment our nice ornamental Plum tree, and the Japanese Maple.
They have a formal, "quiet" look rather than happy and fancy-free.
Bad: Deer magnets. Also attracted those little bright green pests this Spring - thrips?
Neutral: Pests (including Bambi) are controllable with diligent spraying.

This 2003 All-American winner in the Landscaping Category is so easy to grow! I have it in full sun and a sandy-ish soil and the blooms are going nuts this year. The plant grows rapidly so you can divide it and put some in another part of the yard or share with someone else.
