CARE
Care Thrives in organically rich loam; adapts to most soil types, provided they are well-drained. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Remove old foliage and spent blooms for a neat appearance and to promote continued bloom.
HISTORY
Lore The daylily originated in China and can be found in literature as early as 2697 BC. It arrived in Europe by the first century AD but failed to be of much interest. Because daylily does not easily cross-pollinate, breeding did not ensue. The key to pollination was just discovered in 1921 by the American, A. B. Stout. Since that time the number of cultivars has reached nearly 40,000. In China, the daylily was considered a food and medicinal plant.
