| Josh, there was another thread titled Companion planting not to long ago. I think the last post was around 5 days ago. There have been other threads about companion planting over the years also. I'm not the best with computers so I'm not sure how to post the links. |
Mostly I have my irises in iris beds with other plants behind the irises. But I do have a few daylilies here and there within the irises.

|Welcome to the Irises Forum Josh.|
I plant the early blooming iris in the front with the later ones toward the rear to extend the bloom season somewhat with some daylilies interspersed. Does not improve all the looks but helps.

|Josh, I have a small urban garden so I plant my irises in the back and plant a variety of annuals and perennials in front. The one requirement is that they be deer resistant.So, no daylilies. Something blooms from February through frost.|
