Two questions, actually. I have heard there is a variety of daylily that only grows to about 3' - does anyone know the name of this variety? And also, can they be grown in pots?
Thanks!

Welcome! there are tens of thousands of different daylilies and many that are 3' or under. You can search the daylily database here on NGA for daylilies of specific heights:

http://garden.org/plants/group/daylilies/search/

I'm not sure how to search for all daylilies below 36" though, maybe someone else can help, or you can go to the American Hemerocallis (Daylily) Society database where you can search for all registered daylilies below a specified height:

http://www.daylilies.org/DaylilyDB/?advanced

Yes, they can be grown in pots.

Edited to add the AHS database says there are 67,521 daylilies less than 36" tall, although not all will be available in commerce

I tip my hat to you. You could check out the daylily forum here on NGA
