We all see a lot of tree frogs residing in our daylilies. My grandson asked why they do that and I really didn't have a good answer for him. Does anyone in this great site know the answer to this??

I can answer that for you! I used to work for the wildlife service here in TN. All of the bugs that pollinate the daylilies- bees, moths, butterflies, etc attract the frogs and they end up using the flower as a good shelter/ hunting hole!

I think it's also because the plants help retain moisture when it's hot out, frogs gotta stay wet. Thumbs up

TomThumb - Welcome! to the Daylily Forum! And yes! I do believe that might be the biggest reason they hide in flowers and other places! Tree Frog DO have to keep a level of moisture in their bodies or they dry up and die. Thanks for pointing that out! Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up
