Easily grown in average, moderate wet, well-drained soil in full sun to
part shade. Daylilies perform well in a wide range of well-drained soils,
but prefer a deep, fertile loam. Deadhead spent flowers daily for neatness
and remove scapes when flowers have completed bloom. Tolerant of summer
heat and humidity, but appreciates deep watering in arid spells to keep
foliage attractive. Works well adjacent to garden fountains. Daylilies should be divided to maintain vigor when
the clumps become overcrowded.
“Tetrina”s Daughter” is a tetraploid day lily form of
H. citrina (see D170). It features 4-inch diameter trumpet-shaped, light
lemon-yellow flowers. Flowers appear on naked branching stems (scapes)
which typically rise to 35-38’ tall above a clump of arching, linear,
blade-like, green leaves. Flowers have a mild lemon fragrance. Individual
flowers open for one day. Blooms in mid- to mid-late season. (Fay 1971.)
No serious insect or disease problems. Daylilies are extremely adaptable
perennials. They are easy to grow and virtually pest-free.
Borders. Mass over large areas or grow in clumps. Fountain-like leaves
provide elegant foliage, color and texture for the garden when flowers
are not in bloom. Daylilies can crowd out weeds and form a verdant ground
