Where is the best place to plant daylilies?

You need to consider four things in determining where to plant your daylilies:

Sun or Shade

Most daylilies do best in full sun. They will tolerate part-shade conditions, but require a minimum of six hours of direct sun per day.

Light yellow cultivars, many shades of pink, and delicate pastels need full sun to bring out their lovely colorings.

Many red and purple cultivars benefit from partial shade in the hottest part of the day because dark colors absorb heat and do not withstand the sun as well as lighter colors.

Type of Soil

Any good garden soil is appropriate for growing daylilies. Daylilies will grow, however, in sandy soil or in heavy clay.

If you have heavy clay soil, add compost, humus, peat moss, and sand to make it more friable.

If you have sandy soil, add compost, humus, and peat moss to lesson its porosity and to increase water retention.

Drainage

For maximum performance, daylilies should be planted in well-drained soil. One method of achieving adequate drainage in problem areas is to prepare raised beds, 3 to 6 inches above ground level.

Compatibility with Other Plants

Daylilies do not grow well near broadleaf trees such as maples, poplars, or beeches because the tree roots rob the soil of moisture and nutrients. Daylilies do perform well under pine trees because of the dappled shade and because there is no competition with the pine's deep root system.
