You may be asking how to care for Stella d Oro Daylily. This reblooming daylily is easy to grow and the biggest benefit of removing the spent flower stalks is so more can appear. Daylilies are very drought tolerant once established.
It can benefit from adding a slow release fertilizer in early spring to improve seed pod production and help protect against daylily rust. The Stella d Oro flowers will act in a spreading nature when the oro blooms drop the seed pods to the ground.
