Help Your Daylilies Rebloom This Summer With One Simple Tip
To help your daylilies rebloom in the summer, consider deadheading them, which involves removing spent blooms so the plant can refocus its energy on producing new blooms.
Deadheading also helps maintain the aesthetic appearance of the daylily bed; however, it has to be done during the flowering stage for it to have any real effect.
Pay attention to faded blooms during the blooming season as these tend to indicate that the daylily's stalk is dying. Cut down the flower and its stem to stop the nutrient flow.
This promotes reserve buildup, which helps the perennial to grow more stalks and rebloom. Then, cut the stalk at 45 degrees and bring it down to ground level.
