Naturalize meadows and open spaces with our Mixed Daylily Hemerocallis or Natures Daylilies. Stargazer and Casa Blanca Lilies are beautiful Asiatic lilies and add a lovely oriental flair as well as emit fragrance throughout the garden.
Daylilies are great plants for bordering gardens or defining open spaces. Oriental lilies are full sun plants. Daylily plants are typically full sun plants, too, but will also grow in partial sun to light shade. Daylilies grow in well drained to slightly damp soils.
Planting Daylily Bulbs
Daylilies can be planted in spring or fall. Space them about 1 ½ to 2 feet apart.
Dig the hole a few inches deeper that the depth of the clump itself. If any green
foliage is still on the plant, keep it above ground. In the hole, mound about a
handful of soil on the bottom so that the clump sits on it with the tubers spilling
Press the soil firmly when covering and water to eliminate air pockets in the hole.
Deep soak every 3 to 5 days (depending on weather - as needed) for the first 4 to 6 weeks. A good layer of mulch will help
to keep the roots cool and moist during the growing season. Use a low nitrogen
timed release fertilizes.
Pinch off spent blooms to keep the plant from going to seed. Remove any dead
stalks or leaves. At the end of their blooming cycle and as the leaves begin to
wither; they can be cut back to the ground. Every 4 to 6 years, daylilies should be
lifted out of the ground and the clumps divided and replanted.
