Q: We have numerous Stella De Oro daylilies as a border plant. This year after blooming, some have seed pods on them rather than a second set of buds. What do we do with these?
A: You’ll get more blooms if you cut the seed pods off. Stella daylilies thrive if given full sunshine, regular watering and ample fertilizer. Apply a slow-release fertilizer such as Osmocote or Dynamite in April each year and make a habit of regularly checking the soil for dryness. Your daylilies should bloom happily until August.
