Soil: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Daylilies perform well in a wide range of soils, but prefer deep, fertile loam.
Light: Full sun to light shade -- In areas with hot summers, light afternoon shade will keep brightly colored flowers from fading.
Water: Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. Benefits from a 2-inch layer of compost mulch in spring to retain moisture and control weeds
Spacing: 1.5 to 2 feet
Fertilizing : Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, (or a light application of time release fertilizer if planted in poorer soils). Avoid excessive fertilizing as this will inhibit flower production.
Winterizing: Can allow foliage to remain for the winter, then remove spent foliage in spring as new growth emerges.
Maintenance & pruning: Remove individual spent flowers daily and cut back flower stalks once all flowers have gone by. Divide plants every three to four years as new growth begins in the spring, lifting plants and dividing them into clumps.
ReviewsWrite a reviewRust IssueAmber | Sep 16, 2017These were beautiful with many blooms as advertised; however, they got rust. I ended up cutting them down to the crown, transplanted and started spraying them with a fungicide and systemic sprays , and that only helped for a short while when they had foliage again. These are not for high humidity/rain areas that don't have a true winter to kill the rust. I pulled them up after the 2nd year of rust because the foliage became unsightly.
