Daylilly

Zone Redding CA 96003 | dottm added on July 1, 2017 | Answered

When my Daylilly has no more blossoms should I cut that stem back to the ground? The leaves have turned brown due to extreme hot weather here in Northern CA. Should I cut the leaves back also? Thank you.

    You can deadhead the flower stems back to the base of the plant.
    Though it would clean up the garden to remove the stems, it's best to let them die back naturally. Continue to water, to prevent them drying up to quickly.
