Daylilies are not choosy in term of soil and raising place. They prefer a sunny place. It ensures more flowers and beautiful colours. Sunny place is more required for varieties with light-coloured blossoms, because the delicate pastel colouring stands out only when there is sufficient light. Poor-shading places are appropriated for varieties with dark colour flowers.

Before planting, the soil should be ameliorated 30 cm deep at least. Although daylilies are not choosy in term of soil, advisable pH must be 6.5. The intended ground for the plantation should be free of any perennial weeds, like couch-grass and ground-elder, because afterwards it is very difficult to dispose of them. The distance between the seedlings should be 50-60 cm.

As daylilies can grow at the same place for many years, the ground (especially if it is sandy soil or loam) should be ameliorated with organic fertilizer.

The groundwater should be below 50 cm, otherwise you should form a elevated planting beds.

Daylilies badly survive the overflow of soil in the spring. But they still love slight moisture at the roots. These plants should be rarely watered, only weting the soil in the depth of roots. Also mulch  is recommended. Like most of plants, daylilies should not be watered with cold water.

The best time to plant daylilies is mid-April to May and after flowering in mid-August till September. It is not forbidden to plant the daylilies during flowering period. The bushes should be divided and replanted, when the intensity of growing and flowering has visibly decreased.

Only daylilies gives the unique opportunity to see every day new, gorgeous and so beautiful flowers! There remains only one – enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
