Daylily - Hemerocallis.

RE: plant 4

you can sharpen a shovel.. and cut that into 2 to 4 pieces.. if you wish more... just put the shovel in and jump on it ... and pry it out of there ....

and daylily is so bulletproof.. you can probably leave one on the driveway all summer.. and it wont die .. even if you drive over it every day ...

Maybe a Stella d'oro or other of its kind?

Thank you all.

Ken are you saying that I should thin these out?

RE: plant 4

As Ken says:

though I use a spade with daylilies, etc..
Has a nice straight edge/line.

Easy to chop up.

If you dig the whole clump and soak it in a bucket for a day, then the roots should untangle. Use either your hands or a fork, and pull them apart, trying to leave them in groups of 2 if you can. Replant, and they will bloom much better than if you leave them in that clump. Some pull apart easier than others...so you really do have to chop, but you lose a few plants in that process.
The leaves are too wide for Stella. This is a good time of year to divide daylilies.

Thanks to all! I can't wait to see what this garden turns out to be.
