Hemerocallis x 'May May'


Tips for Homeowners:

Daylilies are somewhat drought tolerant, but to produce flowers and to keep the foliage from browning they must have adequate water, so be prepared to irrigate in very dry weather. Feed lightly in March with a fertilizer that has a high ratio of nitrogen. Best to divide every 3-5 years.

Interesting Notes about Daylily:

Daylilies are extremely hardy and reliable perennials. They are available in a multitude of colors and flower types and are usually described according to their bloom time (early, mid or late) and/or if the plant reblooms in same season. The two things all daylilies have in common are arching, strap-like leaves and the flowers only last one day or night.
