What do you have planted around daylilies?

If I ever get myself out to divide the daylilies, I need to fill in the flower bed with something else in front of them. Any suggestions? Something that takes full sun but not too water loving after established. No other requirements.

Thanks for any ideas.

My daylilies tend to take all the space in my beds, but I think if space was available, I would plant snapdragons, bright red ones. My last daylily is in bloom right now, bright yellow. My red snapdragons are also in bloom, they will now continue to bloom all winter and hide the declining daylies. when warm weather starts with daylily foliage the snapdragons will be through. Al

I put them at the front of beds, in front of roses and irises. There isn't much in the perennial department that is short enough to go in front. How about thyme? Or catmint?

I thought of thyme and have some elsewhere which I could just transplant as it has rooted in several places. I just want something to cover the soil a bit. I was thinking of the Mexican heather but not sure if it can take the full sun and might get too tall.
