Here is a beauty that was transplanted last year in front of my shed. It thrives here, and gifted me with several days’ worth of exquisite blooms. It has a maroon thoat and yellow petals, which were easy to see from the deck, so many yards away.
What’s nice about daylilies is that they are basically tall. You don’t have to bend over to groom the plant. Because the flowers only last one day, you can see what’s coming, remove the spent blooms and then finally cut the empty stem down.
The only thing was that this year it was really rainy and wet. Some of the lower leaves turned yellow. But all you have to do is gently tug them off and lay them down under the greenery. They will dissipate quickly and return nutrients to the soil.
I would like to fill my yard with these plants. They come in so many varieties. Like daffodils or tulips, you can extend the season by planting different cultivars.
