One of my favorite daylilies is Gold Helmet. The large, golden yellow blooms are easy to see from far away but you'll want to get closer because they are nicely fragrant too! This is also one daylily that has increased quickly for me (a rarity in my garden). The fans are large and can bully other plants so give them a little extra space.
