Making daylilies bloom again

96,074 Views
Several varieties of daylily (Stella d'Oro, Blackeyed Stella, Happy Returns, etc) are known as reblooming daylilies. Their first bloom period is just about over here in GA. To encourage further blooming, immediately remove the seed pods, if present, and fertilize with liquid plant food. This will encourage the growth of new leaves, new tubers and new flower stems!

    Do you just cut the pods or cut down at the root?

    Thanks Susan, I usually can get them to bloom 3 times in the season. I'm just eager for the first blooms!
