Overwintering Daylilies in Containers
Was just recently struck with "daylily fever" and having thought I understood the whole "dormant, evergreen, sev" thing (at least what it meant).
Unfortunately, I just now comprehended that evergreens tend to not do so well in colder climates and have already sort of went along my merry way buying off the lily auction (eek, temptation!!) .
I found a posting from 2007 that mentioned someone who grew daylilies in containers (which I am doing as I live in the city and having dirt that doesn't come from a bag at Home Depot is a serious luxury), but she had mentioned that she overwintered them in a cool basement and I didn't see much beyond this info-wise.
Has anyone had success overwintering daylilies in a very low-light basement? Can you do this with evergreen daylilies (low light)or do they need to function all winter as a growing plant (water/light) ?
Thanks so much!
