The dreaded or­ange or tawny daylily

Ontario Gardener Magazine - - GARDEN FEATURES -

New gar­den­ers be­ware of friends of­fer­ing daylily roots – chances are that this is the very pro­lific Heme­ro­cal­lis fulva, an in­va­sive species that trav­els via un­der­ground stolons, or roots that send out run­ners to start new plants. They are tough plants and will per­sist if even the small­est piece of root is left in place. On the other hand, they are great for filling in vast empty space and will even out-com­pete goutweed.
