  • Dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the roots.
  • Firm the soil around the crown, pressing down with both hands.
  • Plant in the early spring or in the early fall.
  • Add organic compost to the soil before planting.
  • Space the bulbs 10 to 18 inches apart and 1 inch deep.
  • Daylilies do very well when planted outdoors.
  • They are not fussy about soil, they can tolerate shade, and they are naturally resistant to insects.
  • Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade
    Soil: Average Soil, Compost Enriched Garden Loam Soil
    Water: Water lightly until top growth emerges, then average during the active growth cycle.
    Temperature: 16 to 24 degrees C
