I have planted 8 daylilies in 5 hours of sun but beside 2 very large maple trees. I have found that this year the bloom was small if any on a couple , but the dirt was all Root? Do the daylilies compete for dirt?(against the maple roots. I have a raised bed and the dirt is all root. Also to mention they are apprx 18 inches apart. Thanks for your help!!!.

RE: Daylilies

DL's need 24/7 full sun! If they are under a tree they may not be getting enough sun. I have 30 dayliles next to blue spruce and crabapples they are doing great, but again they get full sun!

RE: Daylilies

Yeah even if they were to bloom they would probably all be reaching for the sun. I have mostly a full sun property. If i had mostly shade i would probably be growing hostas. Lol.
