|Planting Hints for Daylilies
Daylilies do best in full sun, but
will tolerate partial shade if they have a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun each day.
Daylilies will grow well in most soils. If you have heavy clay or sandy soil,
the addition of compost, humus, or peat moss will enhance the soil and make it more
Daylilies do not grow well near broadleaf trees because the tree
roots are near the surface and use the moisture and nutrients. However, they will grow
near pines because of the dappled shade and the pine's deep root system.
The plants are hardy and be out out of the ground for an extended
period for shipment. It is important to re-hydrate them by soaking them in water or a weak
solution of liquid fertilizer for a few hours to overnight before planting. If they have
been out of the ground for only a few hours, you may plant and then water.
