Daylilies in The Deep South - are they Doomed?






For as long as I can remember, and for generations before me, Daylilies have adorned Georgia gardens in June. This year . . ., not so much! The heat in May turned their foliage brown prematurely, and the three weeks of 90F+ temperatures began just about when the blooms started to open. As a result, Daylilies did not shine this year and for the most part they are done. But . . ., there’s always next year!

Wow, you have several different colors, very beautiful. I just have the one orange one, and it too browned some and didn't seem to do as well as last year. (I'm in SC on the border of GA). I pulled off the browned leaves today, and have been watering them more due to the heat. I'm afraid we're in for alot more of it! Thank goodness for sprinklers :)
