|I never heard them referred to as "Parking Lot Daylilies", but that description sure does fit the bill. Beautiful, full, and bloom like gangbusters! Nice!|

|I would say, Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Happy Returns') is another one of those standards you see used in and around city landscaping. On a sad note, a local city I drive thru on way to the office, just spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on center median landscaping and not a single daylily! |
That city council needs a talking too!

Or at least a texting to!
I welcome the easy care plants!
Even some that people consider "weeds".
I have nightshade (pretty little purple flowers ) and Virginia creeper on my chainlink fence right next to the sweet autumn clematis.
And I now have (just noticed as some young ones got old enough to bloom) I have TWO DOZEN different daylilies in my garden!!!
If I were choosing plants for an untended commercial site I'd certainly choose daylilies!

|And just this afternoon, I had a friend ask me what I thought he should do with a small but steep slopey part of his yard.|
I told him daylilies!

|I bet those parking lot daylilies really brighten and soften up the landscape!|

|Several ago, I visited my aunt in Philly and across the street from her house is a bus stop and along the sidewalk are the ditch daylilies - they were blooming a gorgeous bright orange. It was so lovely to see every day when I was visiting. |
