How are your day lilies holding up?

I don't know if some of mine went dormant or if they are gone for good. Some are still alive but really puny.

Same here. The ones that died back last summer came back later and all bloomed well this year.

Mine typically fizzle during the heat and bloom/green up in the spring again.

What I wouldn't pay for daylilies that bloom in the 100+ degree heat!

I have one that I dug up at a trailer park when they made everyone move, probably Stella, it has not quit blooming all summer! Usually it blooms spring, looks dreadful all summer. It is planted in the hottest, driest part of the yard.

Mine looked terrible until just the past couple of weeks. Recent rains have really helped. I fertilized lightly about 3 weeks ago and I think that has helped them rebound. I will be clearing out about 60 varieties...many newer... in mid to late Sept. I will be posting them on the Lily Auction, but will also have several for trade....for somethings OTHER than DL's.

Another trick that I think has helped in a couple of beds: I installed a red-neck irrigation system. That is, I ran
pvc from the washing machine to the beds. Cut slits in a
ten foot piece for the water to escape through. It takes a little moving pvc pipe, but sure saves on the water bill.
