I rent this home, my first summer here. Im also very new to gardening. I have these plants growing in the yard and i have no idea what they are. I'll attach two pictures for reference. I live on Long Island and these plants are growing next to the house on the south side.

Yep, daylily is right....they look like they need dividing....now would be a good time, but if you're renting, better ask the landlord.

He won't mind if i do. I assume gently digging them up and replanting around the yard? I honestly hate where they are anyway.

Yes.....you will probably lose the blossoms for this year, but maybe not....depends on the plant. Just be sure you give them plenty of sun......

Daylily for sure. They look overgrown and need thinning.
They are a good foundation plant and often used for color at office buildings with other shrubs etc in landscape design.
My guess is they are yellow.
