After daylily season I wonder why I have so many of the plants. When they are in bloom, I wonder why I don’t have more. In my garden they would do better with more watering, but I try to water as little as possible. We’ve had a fairly wet year, except for the weeks preceding daylily bloom, which was bone dry. Daylilies, or botanically speaking Hemerocallis, are very drought tolerant. I try to keep the plants deadheaded so they always look their best, but it is a daily chore.
