Soil:It like well-drained soil. I have mine planted in a mix of sandy soil and top soil.
Daylilies likes soil that is high in organic concentrate. I got mine from a mail order a few years back. During the past few years, they had come out each year and died back down without any flowers. Each time they come back with a little bit more in numbers and larger in size. Last year, a friend of mine told me that each time instead of throwing some of the old withered vegetables away, I could bury them underneath or near my plants, this will increase the organic contend of soil. So I followed her advice, and this year, my daylilies finally flowered.
My daylilies have bi-lobed green leaves. The leaves are only about a foot in height, but the flower stems are about three to four feet high, and each one of them has a cluster of bright orange star shaped flowers. Though they lack any noticeable fragrance, they look quite lovely and showy in the garden.Once the flowers have died down, seed pods might be formed at the end of the stems. Gather the seeds after the pods can be easily cracked open. I was told to let them air dry for a while, then bag them up and place them in the refrigerator. They can be left in there for quite some time. A few weeks later, take them out, soak them in warm water for a few hours. Then plant them inside of the pots and covered them with a thin layer of soil. The pots should be left in somewhere that offers shade throughout the day, but at the same time offers indirect light. Keep the soil moist, and the little daylilies should start to grown within a week or so.
