Growing Hemerocallis (Daylily) One of My Favorites Flowers

Hardy, pest-resistant, and quick to multiply, Daylilies are ideal perennials with many landscape uses: as specimen plants in the garden
Although each flower only lasts a day, the blooms open over a long period. Early, mid-season and late varieties are available and by planting some from each group it is possible to have almost continuous bloom throughout the summer
When planting your bare root Daylily, dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the roots. Spread out the thick roots in the hole and place the plant so the crown—where the leaves meet the roots—is 1″ below the surface of the soil. Holding the crown of the plant, push soil into the hole, working soil around the roots. Firm the soil around the crown, pressing down with both hands.
Daylilies will grow in full sun in the North and will tolerate the same in the South with sufficient moisture.

Fertilize lightly once the plants are established, but avoid using mixes high in nitrogen, a good fertilizer is 6-12-12 or 10-10-10

    Would they grow in areas that have snow? Do deer like them?
