The Best Time Of Year To Plant Daylilies For A Vibrant Garden
Plant daylilies when the ground is soft and workable, generally from early spring to late fall; however, it’s important to note that this varies depending on your climate zone.
In colder climates (USDA Hardiness Zones 1-8), aim for spring planting to allow roots to establish before winter, and mulch in the fall to protect the plants from frost.
For warmer climates (Zones 9-13), avoid planting in hot summer months to prevent root rot. Opt for early spring or late autumn, and be sure to use well-draining soil.
Growing from seeds is possible but may yield unpredictable results. Instead, you can get new daylilies by dividing a clump after the plant has stopped flowering in late summer.
