Day lily bulb These hearty bulbs are easy to grow and require minimal care, provided that you plant them in the right place. At home in both formal and naturalistic settings, lilies also most take readily to containers. Plus, they all make wonderful cut flowers! Daylilies are clump-forming perennials with arching, grass like or strapline leaves. All the leaves arise from the base of the plant in two opposing ranks, resulting in a fan-like appearance.
Select a site that gets full sun. For dependable blooms, lilies need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If it is too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over. dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the roots. Firm the soil around the crown, pressing down with both hands.
The amount of bloom is proportional to the amount of sun. In other words, the more sun the more blooms; but daylilies will grow in any light condition. A half day of afternoon sun is almost as good as a full day of sun. When choosing a location for them, consider how much of the day they would have direct sunlight. The midday and early afternoon sun is the strongest, but morning sun is usually adequate for a good show.
