Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.
Day-Lily plants thrive in many types of outdoor climates. However, they do best in Hardiness Zones from 3 to 9.
That makes them an ideal choice for growers in this part of the country.
Bloom Season Daylilies typically bloom for a short time. Expect to see flowers anywhere from a week to as long as five weeks. The blooms will start in March or April if you live in the South. From May to June is the blooming season if you're up North.
Day-Lilies come in several primary colors and well as a combination of varied colors.
You can expect to see them in shades, including deep yellow, vivid red, soft pink, and many kinds of purple hues. Growers also present them to the public in lots of orange shades that are typically associated with the plant ranging from pale apricot to deep tangerine.
Height at Maturity there are three different sizes of day-lilies. Each one has an extra height when brought to the soil. The miniature is under three inches. Small can get up to four and a half inches in size. The large version is flowers that past this size in overall diameter.
Soil Type Preferred Day-lilies can flourish under many kinds of soil varieties and conditions, making it easy to plant them in nearly any part of your home. In general, they prefer soil that is slightly moist over drier soil. They also prefer well-drained soil that will not overwhelm the plant's roots. Many growers find one that is rich in organic matter tends to give the best results.
Sun or Shade Daylilies do best when they have at least six hours of sunlight. Plants in hot climates need at least some shade to grow.
