Accidental Cutting of Daylilies

alienkeeperMay 2, 2012

My lawn care guy did the first cutting of my lawn today May 2. I think he accidentally cut my area of Happy Returns Daylilies which had only 6 plants but they were cut down to "ground level".They were placed last year in front of a large boulder in the lawn to add color. I am in Ct. and the daylilies were about 7-8" tall but naturally no flowering as of yet. Will they be able to regrow and flower this year? They were probably several weeks from flowering but no buds were detected. Should I fertilize to assist the the regrowing process? Thanking all of you in advance.

They will probably be fine, but later than usual to bloom.

Yeah, I think they'll be fine if they don't become part of the regular mowing area. :)

They really should be fine but be careful that they don't get mowed down again.
