A true workhorse in the garden! Wouldn't be without them. Mine tend to get quite large and need quartering about every three years. I like the plant and enjoy and forget attributes. Well, there is the cutting down of spent bloom stalks.
When the Stellas bloom, it heralds the beginning of daylily season, so they are always a welcome sight. I just returned from a trip to Indianapolis, where there is a lot of landscaping done with Stellas. Mine were blooming down in the foliage this time, but all the ones I saw in Indy were fairly tall and very well budded.
Too bad they're regarded as that to be that hidden away b**t**d child of the daylily world. I do like all daylilies in a non-avid sort of way - deer like them too but seem to overlook the Stellas that I have here and there. For me that's a bonus.
I know they are definitely over-planted -- used in every storefronts landscaping around here.
But... for a newbie gardener like me, they are a sure-fire way of having something that successfully grows and blooms in my front yard!
That's the spirit, stir.
