Daylily rust/Suggestions for new plants to replace

luvpatch2April 7, 2014

Hi! I had 12 yellow daylilies planted in my front yard garden 3 years ago when I had professional landscaping done. I have had problems with them ever since and just found out today that they have daylily rust, I have been pulling the affected leaves off all the time and am tired of dealing with it. Last year they did not bloom very well and looked sick all summer. I would like some suggestions for 12 new plants to replace the daylilies. I would like to pull them out completely and do not know what I should plant in those areas. They are spread out among other landscape plants with Loropetulum, abelia plants, 4 camelilia bushes and a Japanese maple. Any suggestions? Thanks

Bicolor iris will give you similar foliage, and are hardier. They should be evergreen in your area. Mine rarely bloom, though.
