Daylily Catherine Woodbury
Latin Name: Hemerocallis
Common Name: Daylilies
Our Daylily Catherine Woodbury features lovely, fragrant 4 1/2 inches lavender pink blooms with white midribs and a yellow throat. .Daylilies prefer a sunny location in northern zones, but will grow in partial shade with at least six hours of full sun. Hemerocallis prefer nutrient rich soil, and plants should be fertilized shortly after planting, in the early spring, and again in late summer. Daylililies do well in well drained soil, and prefer a heavy watering once a week rather than frequent light watering. Daylilies are prone to rotting if overwatered. In the fall, a layer of mulch on top of the plant will protect the root system, especially in colder northern climates.

- Select a spot in the garden that receives full sun to partial shade and dig a hole for each Daylily plant that is larger than the root mass. Daylilies should be planted at least 18-24″ apart on each side around the plant.
- Mound fertile soil that drains well in the hole, spreading the roots as evenly as possible on the mound.
- Fill in soil around and between the roots, pressing down firmly. Water thoroughly, making certain there are no air pockets around the roots. Add soil to fill the hole only up to the band of white at the base of the foliage, and make a small indentation all around the plant.
Daylilies, hardy in Zones 3-9, are most often thought of as the orange, yellow, or dull reddish-yellow flowers that bloom along the roadside. However, various shades of yellow, red, pink, purple, and melon Daylilies can be found in many gardens. Pure white and pure blue Daylilies are the only colors hybridizers have not yet bred.
Although the individual flowers of a Daylily last for only a single day, each plant can produce several stalks with numerous buds on each stalk, providing flowers that may last for several weeks. Some Daylilies varieties bloom more than once in a growing season.
In the spring, dead foliage should be removed as well as any debris that has collected around the Daylilies. Fertilizer can be added at this time. During the growing season, leaves that are damaged or appear to be diseased should be removed.
In hot weather, Daylilies should be watered deeply once a week. Deadheading the plants will keep them looking neat. After 3-4 years, clumps can be dug up and divided if desired.
