Instructions

Growing Instructions:

  • Daylily plants are shipped as bare roots. They are tough plants that survive shipment dry and can remain out of the soil for 2 or 3 days before planting. If the roots are very dry upon receipt, soak them in luke-warm water for a few minutes. If not planting upon receipt, remove from the plastic bag and store in a cool, dry, dark location.
  • Daylilies perform best in full sun or a location that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sun. Daylilies thrive in all soil types. If the soil is very sandy, add peat moss or compost to help retain moisture.
  • Plants should be planted after the last frost and soil is workable. Loosen the soil to a depth of 25-30 cm (10-12") before planting. Dig a hole approximately 30 cm (12") deep and 30 cm (12") wide. Make a mound of soil in the center of the hole. Place the roots on the mound and spread them out. The crown of the plant (where the leaves and roots meet) should not be more than 2.5 cm (1") below the soil surface when the hole is filled in. Fill in around the roots, firmly press down the soil so it is even with the surrounding ground, and water well. Make sure there are no air pockets in the soil.
  • Water newly planted daylilies once a week unless you are in a very warm part of the country where plants generally require more frequent watering. You do not need to water every day. Newly planted daylilies need to be encouraged to send out new roots, and they will do that in search of moisture. Newly planted daylilies rarely rot, but over-watering during times of high heat can stress the plants. If plants are not receiving water from rain, provide your plants with 2.5 cm (1") of water per week.

Planting Depth: 2.5 cm or 1"

Plantling Spacing: 61 cm (2')

Suggestions

Growing Suggestions:

  • Planting daylilies too deep can encourage crown rot and may hinder blooming.
  • Newly planted daylilies do not require fertilizing.
  • The first growing year after planting should be focused on establishing strong root systems. It is best to remove flower scapes the first year to focus all energy into the the roots. You will be rewarded with stronger, healthier and more prolific blooming plants!
  • Remove dead/dry foliage in early Spring before it produces new growth for the season.
