Homeowner Growing Tips: Daylilies are easy, adaptable plants, reliable bloomers, and long-lasting perennials. Grow in moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil. Once established, they are moderately drought tolerant. Provide ample sun and moisture to ensure optimum flowering. Apply granular fertilizer for flowering plants in spring, and a balanced liquid fertilizer every 2 - 3 weeks through summer. Remove spent flowers and leaves on a regular basis. Plants can be divided every 3 - 5 years to maintain vigor.
