Care cut for faded daylilies


The Content Of The Article:

Durable, easy-care and extremely robust daylilies (Hemerocallis) present in our gardens. As the name implies, each daylily flower holds only a single day. Once it has withered, you simply cut it off for a more beautiful look. However, depending on the variety, from June to September, new flowers are formed - and in abundance - the joy of a daylily remains unclouded throughout the summer. Modern varieties impress with over 300 single flowers per season, with one stem carrying up to 40 buds.

While other perennials that perform such acts of strength are often short-lived and end their existence after only a few years, daylilies can become really old. The hardy perennial develops magnificently on moist, nutrient-rich soils in full sun, but also prefers partial shade. However, when the flowering period is over, the grassy foliage often turns brown. It is hardly known that daylilies can be cut back. Especially in the early flowering species and varieties, such as 'may king', the foliage often becomes unsightly in late summer.

Cutting daylilies: That's how it works

Cut daylilies

If you reduce the still green tufts after flowering to 10 to 15 centimeters above the ground, show after two or three weeks again fresh leaves

Especially with early daylily species and varieties, it is worthwhile shortening them to 10 to 15 centimeters above the ground. Then push the base through again, so that show fresh leaves already two to three weeks after the pruning. In late Hemerocallis, which blooms well into September, a good supply of water keeps the leaves greener for longer. You should not cut back such varieties until late autumn. The pruning ensures that the plants do not stick to the base and can drive out well in the spring. At the same time one takes the snails a part of their hiding places.

Daylily Hemerocallis citrina

The delicate yellow flowers of the lemur daylily (Hemerocallis citrina) emit their perfume, especially at dusk

With the election to the perennial of the year honors the federation German perennial gardener a plant, which enjoys world-wide great popularity. That this is the case with the daylily, as attested by the more than 80,000 registered varieties. Many come from the USA, where every year many new things are added. Not all are suitable for our European climate. Renowned perennial nurseries, however, offer only those varieties that are sure to flower and endure in local gardens. The wild species also have their charm. The lemon daylily (Hemerocallis citrina) does not open its yellow flowers until the evening hours to attract the moths with the scent.
