The daylily thrives in the garden. Prepare a large hole in good, loose soil. Improve your garden soil by adding compost. Plant the Hemerocallis at the correct depth in the hole - the top of the roots should be just slightly below surface level. Refill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water your daylily immediately after planting. This plant thrives in full sun but will also tolerate partial shade.
Combining Daylilies with other plants
The sunny red and yellow flowers of the mixed Daylily look great combined with other plants. Their elegant, overhanging, narrow leaves are very decorative too. For your flower border, try combining the Hemerocallis with Alstroemeria (Inca Lily), Phlox and Delphinium. Planted in moist soil, you can make a great combination with Hostas.
Make sure the soil surrounding the Hemerocallis (mixed) does not become too dry. This daylily grows well in fairly moist, well-drained soil, such as along the edge of a garden pond. Remove the dead flowers and the seed pods to encourage more blooms. The daylily is a very strong garden plant and can remain in the same spot for several years. Give it an annual winter mulch of compost and garden fertiliser around the base.
Hemerocallis (mixed) flowers are not only beautiful to admire, but they are also edible! In Asian countries, the daylily flower buds are even considered a delicacy! The name daylily represents the fact that these lily-like flowers only open for one day. However, since there are many flower buds on its stems, the plant seems to be overflowing with flowers during the summer.
