New Daylilies, 10 days later in the heat. 7.21.15

Daylily Carefree Peach, 10 days later.  7.21.15
 The new daylilies are surviving the 100F week after planting.  I watered every day.  The original cut foliage died off, leaving the start of new leaves.  I  think this is promising.

These are tough plants.  I don't know of a lot of perennials that would take digging up, hosing to bare root, chop roots and top, then plant and expose to 100F sun.

Daylily Siloam Virginia H. 10 days later.  7.21.15


  1. we have a heat wave here too. Dahlia not looking too well. what can we do but keep watering. Southern CA got all the rain and we saw dark clouds and high humidity but the rain was teasing us. I think you can even cover the Iris with leaves completely for a couple of days to hid them from the sun. But they still look good to me.

  2. I hope your heat wave lets up. Iris is very dry tolerant. They have more trouble with too much rain, than not enough.
