Yangtze Daylily Care
Yangtze Daylilies prefer dry, well drained soil types with high organic matter content, so be sure to add some compost or manure to the planting hole when you first install your day lily. They are not picky though and will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions.
Keep in full sun to partial shade to keep this beautiful plant happy all summer long. The daylily bloom time is in early to mid spring and summer. Blooming will stop in early fall. Grow across most areas of the United States in USDA plant hardiness zone 4-10. It has excellent cold hardiness in North America.

This perennial’s leaves clump together like an ornamental grass. Once the daylily clumps start getting too thick that means it’s time to divide. You can keep these planted in containers or pots, raised beds, or straight in the ground in perennial gardens or fragrant flower beds. No need to amend the garden soil, the yellow daylily plant will adapt to any planting site.
Dig a hole the size of the root ball, place the plant, and backfill with soil. Water plants thoroughly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. No need to prune this tough plant except for dead foliage. A slow release fertilizer will help encourage growth and new blooms if placed an inch below the soil line.
