Frequently Asked Questions

Stella d'Oro Daylilies are a favorite among gardeners for their compact growth habits and extended blooming season. Start by selecting a sunny location with well-draining soil. Space the bulbs about 18-24 inches apart and plant them 1-2 inches deep. Water the bulbs thoroughly after planting. During the growing season, maintain consistent soil moisture without overwatering, as soggy soil can cause the bulbs to rot.

Feed the daylilies with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring and fall to support vigorous growth and abundant blooms. Regularly deadhead spent flowers and remove any yellowing foliage to encourage new blooms and maintain a tidy appearance. Applying mulch around the plants helps retain moisture, suppress weeds, and insulate the roots in colder climates.

Monitor for pests and diseases, treating them promptly if they appear. Although Stella d'Oro Daylilies are relatively low-maintenance, regular care will keep them healthy and blooming profusely.

Planting Stella d'Oro Daylily bulbs in spring or fall provides optimal results. Spring planting allows the bulbs to develop a robust root system before the summer heat, while fall planting offers a head start for the following growing season. In either case, ensure the soil is well-draining to prevent bulb rot.

If planting in the fall, aim to do so at least 4-6 weeks before the first hard frost. This timing allows the bulbs to establish themselves before winter arrives. Providing a layer of mulch for insulation can help protect the bulbs in colder climates.

If planting in the spring, please do this approximately 4 weeks before the last frost. In warmer climates, this can be very early in the year. Or consider planting them in the fall then.

Stella d'Oro Daylilies are compact, typically reaching a height of 12-18 inches. This smaller stature makes them ideal for use in borders, containers, or small gardens where space is limited. The bright yellow flowers bloom from late spring to early fall, offering a long-lasting and eye-catching display.

Each flower lasts for a single day, but the plant continuously produces buds on each stem, ensuring an ongoing show of color. Regular deadheading promotes even more blooms, and with proper care, Stella d'Oro Daylilies can provide months of vibrant color in your garden.

While Stella d'Oro Daylilies are considered deer-resistant due to their strong fragrance and slightly toxic foliage, it's important to recognize that no plant is entirely deer-proof. In areas with high deer populations or limited food sources, deer may still browse on daylilies.

To further protect your daylilies, consider implementing additional deer deterrents, such as installing fencing, using repellents, or planting other deer-resistant plants nearby. Combining these strategies with the deer-resistant qualities of Stella d'Oro Daylilies can help minimize deer damage in your garden.

Stella d'Oro Daylilies are well-suited for container gardening due to their compact size and prolific blooming habit. Choose a container with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging and use a well-draining potting mix for optimal root health. Plant the bulbs at the same depth as you would in the ground and water them thoroughly after planting.

Container-grown daylilies require more frequent watering than those in the ground, as the soil in pots dries out more quickly. Monitor the soil moisture and water as needed to maintain consistent moisture levels. Fertilize container-grown daylilies with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer according to package instructions, and place the container in a sunny location for optimal growth and flowering.

Regular deadheading and grooming will ensure an extended blooming period and an attractive, healthy appearance.
