Irises and Daylilies are excellent companion plants in landscapes. Irises are spring flowering (some re-blooming in autumn) while daylilies are summer flowering. When planted together, the landscaped area has extended colour while the foliage of the non-flowering variety plant enhances and contrasts the flowering variety plant.
Both irises and daylilies have flamboyant blooms and vibrant colours in primary colours, pastels and colour combinations. Large swathes of a single colour make a profound statement. When planting irises and daylilies together in colour blocks, an area could have an alternating colour statement from one month to the next.
Irises and daylilies are water-wise, low-maintenance plants and perform well in cold areas.
Both prefer full sun to semi-shade conditions. In areas with excessive rainfall take care to allow the necessary drainage for irises.
These plants are both perennials and have the same cycle of three to four years before they
need to be lifted and transplanted.
