Frequently Asked Questions:

 
Are daylilies a bulb?
Daylilies are a root not a bulb.
 
Why Are They Called Daylilies?
They are called daylilies because the bloom only lasts for one day and then close up. But there are lots of blooms on a plant so they can bloom for several weeks. The actual name for daylilies is Hemerocallis (which means beautiful for a day).
 
How Do I Plant Daylilies?
Daylilies prefer full sun but will do well also if it gets at least 6 hours of sun a day. If you buy them in a pot, remove with as much soil as possible and place in hole you have dug. The soil should just cover the crown of the plant (where the roots and plant meet). If you bought the plant by bare root and the roots are dry, just soak in water for a day and plant the same as potted ones. Water well for the next couple of days to let the soil settle around the plant.
 
When Should I Plant Daylilies?
You should plant in the early spring or late summer. This is the best time for them to get established in there new home.
 
What Do I  Do With the Daylilies in The Fall?
Nothing, just leave them as is. The foliage acts as a mulch to protect them in the winter. In the spring just clean up the old foliage and add a bit of fertilizer. If you like, put some new mulch which is good for holding in the moisture and keeping down the weeds and they are off and running for another beautiful season.
