Jungle Beauty Daylily – Blooms Sprouting From The Base

savannah greenville

Q: Last year I purchased and planted a Jungle Beauty daylily. When it bloomed this year, the blooms are coming from the base of the plant and had no stems. Do you know what has happened here? 

A: Short stems for daylily flowers are caused by fluctuating high and low temperatures. We’ve had plenty of that this spring and summer. The daylily variety and the stage of growth it was in at flowering also play a part in this phenomenon. The good news is that daylilies grow out of it. Treat your daylily normally and it will likely bloom as expected next year.
