beautiful, and prolific. Other favorites include daisy like flowers called rudbeckia. We have them as both annual and perennial varieties. We love coneflowers.

Some facts about daylilies...
When you receive your daylilies, unpack the box immediately and place the daylilies in a container with their roots in water and put in the shade. Let them stand in the water for at least 1 hour. They are then ready to plant. They can be kept in a cool place and in the water and in the shade for up to 5 days before planting.
Daylilies can be planted when the frost is out of the ground.
Daylilies like at least 6 hours of direct sun. Daylilies prefer a well-drained location. They will grow in a wide range of soils, from sand to heavy clay, and in a wide range of soil pH's. Add some peat moss or sterilized manure and mix into the soil. A 1/2 recommended strength garden fertilizer, 10- 10-10, is also helpful.
Dig the hole large enough to accommodate the roots of the daylily fully spread. Cover the roots with soil to a point about one inch above the upper most root. You will see a transition from white to green on the fan. Do not plant to a depth of more than 1/2" of the green part covered. Keep soil moist, but not wet. As plant matures it will need less maintenance.
Depending on the time of year, we may ship the plant before. during or after it has a scape (flower stalk).
It is common for the tips of the leaves to go to yellow and brown as the plant tries to strengthen itself after its trip.
The daylilies are shipped with a 2 day transit time. If you select ground we may need to call you to authorize 2nd day service.
Daylilies are shipped with the roots washed (no soil) and bagged.
