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.
