Among perennials, I find it hard not to look twice at the daylily ‘Hyperion’. Since its introduction in the 1930s it has held its own against literally thousands of new, and I must say, impressive upstarts. I love its elegant scapes that often reach 3 to 4 feet tall. They tower above many of the other perennials in my garden and move gently with the slightest breeze. But it’s the daylily’s citron-yellow blossom that makes it a must have for me. When planted in combination with blue balloon flower, Shasta daisies and white summer phlox, the association is as cheerful as you could hope for in a summer perennial border.
