Daylilies

are hardy, adaptable, and vital perennials that can decorate your garden for many years with minimal or even no care. Daylilies can adapt to different soil and light conditions. They take root quickly, grow abundantly, and usually survive the winters without any problems. A stem with flowers grows to a height from approximately 20 cm to more than one meter. Therefore, it is good to clarify in advance whether the height of the stem is important for your growth plans. If so, then in our e-shop you can verify this information among the parameters listed for each daylily. Several flowers gradually bloom on each daylily stem. The name daylily, derived from the fact that one flower blooms only one day, is a bit confusing. An adult bunch of daylilies can decorate your chosen place for several weeks. If you choose a suitable composition of several species of daylilies according to their flowering time, then the colours of the selected composition shine from spring to autumn. Daylilies belong to the genus Hemerocallis. These are not lilies. They have tubers, not bulbs. The Greek name is made up of two parts: hemera means day and kallos means beauty. Daylily has different uses in terms of planting. It is often used to delimit different areas, planted in large numbers, e.g. on a slope, it can create beautiful coloured areas in a few years. As a solitaire, it is also unmissable.

Daylily planting and suitable soil.

Daylilies thrive best in full sun. They do not mind partial shade, but they bloom profusely if they receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. If the daylilies are in partial shade, they will retain higher freshness if you do not have much time for watering. It is not very advisable to plant them close to shrubs or trees and thus expose them to the struggle for nutrients and moisture. Although daylilies adapt to most soil types, they are best in slightly acidic, moist soil, which is rich in organic fertilizers. Excessive humidity resp. watering can damage the tubers. Daylilies can be planted almost anytime if the soil is cultivable. It is good to dig the soil deeply before planting and we recommend adding a little organic fertilizer or compost. The excavated hole for the root system should be wide enough to allow the roots to spread without bending or twisting. The best time to plant daylilies is in early spring or immediately after flowering. However, they can withstand a more "brutal" hit, they can be replanted at any time during the season, however, it is important to give them a rich watering after such an event. If you use mulch even during the summer, you do not so much soar with weeds.
