Daylilies are vigorous perennials that require little care in the garden once established. Daylilies adapt to a wide range of growing conditions and establish quickly and survive winters with little or no injury. Daylilies come in a wide range of colors and are an excellent addition to any garden spot. Daylilies are great for the perennial border, planted in large masses or as a ground cover. They tolerate less than ideal conditions and will bloom faithfully for years with virtually no attention. As the name implies, daylily flowers open in the morning and die by nightfall. Each flower stem typically has at least a dozen flower buds, and the plant stays in bloom for many weeks. They should be planted in every garden.

Growing Instructions

Plant Daylilies outdoors in spring after all danger of frost has passed in a partially shaded location. The ideal soil is rich and porous and drains well, yet still holds enough water for the roots. If your soil is heavy clay and drains slowly, or very sandy and does not hold water, add organic soil amendments like peat moss or ground bark. Spread a 3-4 inch layer of soil amendment if needed and incorporate into the soil to a depth of 10 inches. Plant roots 1-2" deep and 18-24" apart. Cover with soil. Water thoroughly at planting. While actively growing, water frequently and thoroughly so that water will reach roots. Mulch to keep the soil cool and to prevent the soil from drying out. Fertilize regularly. Remove foliage after it has completely yellowed and died back. Divide every two to three years.

Care Tip

Divide every two to three years.
