Hello folks, forgive me, but these look familiar to me from gardens I've seen owned and tended by people like you. These were put here by the former owner and I think they may be daylilies of some sort, so I thought I'd go straight to the source and see, and if so, can you tell me if it is safe for me to move them and to where (sun/shade requirements), because, as I think you can tell even from these tight shots, they are in some mess masquerading as a flower bed.

Welcome! Abbey! I can tell you that none of those are daylilies... The middle pic looks like an oriental lily and the others- I don't have a clue! But I'm sure someone else on here will know and can direct you to more info...

Second one also maybe a lily?

How much sun does this bed get?

We might be able to help ID based on the amount of sun there, and later when/if they bloom. Or you could ask on the perennials forum.

In the meantime, give them a balanced time release fertilizer.
It's daylily season!

Hi Poly, it gets morning sun, faces northeast but more east, and there's hosta and mop head hydrangea in the same bed. There were other plans for where this stuff is, but if they can't be safely moved, they're staying, what in time I'm going to do and how I'm going to do it is the million dollar question, but I'm not killing them off. Shrug! Thank you for wanting to help.

Maybe coneflower, lily, dandelion and phlox

The first looks like coreopsis, the second is a lily, and the third picture isn't clear. Unfussy easy to grow perennials for me.

It looks like you have a nice big bed to work with, so I think you definitely need to add some daylilies!

Abbey,
I agree with at least one of them being an oriental lily. I'm not familiar with the first one, but the third also looks to be some sort of lily.
You can always put them on the ID forum on this site...there are some experts that help out there that are great at plant IDs!

Thanks Regina, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone by posting here, and instead, I'll end up starting more than one thread -- ah, best laid plans! Shrug!

@Garden10

I wouldn't worry too much moderators will usually move a thread if it is off topic or out of place Abbey.
The best place for plant ID's is usually the Plant ID forum though

@Garden10
Regarding the lilies. They can be moved now (better to wait till fall). just be sure you spade low enough to bring it up in a nice ball of soil intact and transfer the whole thing. less root disturbance the better.
Most lilies aren't really considered at the top of lists attacting BF and HB though some do so. BF more so than hummers. Some attract hawkmoths (or 'hummingbird moths') at dusk.

Could the first be Shasta daisies? I have several coming up and they look similar.
