They look like the variety "Stella d'Oro". That's a good choice for the border because they are hardy - you can't kill them if you try! I have older ones in my garden that are more orange. The yellow came out a year or two after I planted mine. They grow like crazy so I didn't need to buy any more.

Yes, they are. I have dozens around our property, all different colors. Stella does seem to bloom longer than my other daylilies.

I've got some day lilies, but I don't know if they have names. I just call them yellow and purple

I have some pretty yellow day lilies. But, I planted them (about 3 years ago) too close to the fence. All the stems are lying along the ground. I guess I should move them as soon as they stop blooming.

I looked out my big window today. The landscaper planted some new plants that sends out shoots all over the place. They are heading for my window right now. I feel like I am looking at a horror movie. It has giant leaves and grows at least six feet each day. I am going to have to take a picture. There is no way I can describe it.
