Growing Daylilies for Beginners
Sorry, we are no longer accepting registrations for this course. Please contact our office to find out if it will be rescheduled, or if alternative classes are available.
Daylilies are rugged, adaptable, vigorous perennials that endure in a garden for many years. Daylilies adapt to a wide range of soil and light conditions. They establish quickly and survive winters with little or no injury. While each bloom lasts only one day, hence the name, their multiple blooms last for many weeks, making a striking show of bright colors in the garden landscape. Daylilies are major attractors to the many beneficial insects and hummingbirds that seek out the nectar these plants provide. Once established, daylilies require little care and provide a dramatic backdrop for annuals and other plants season after season. This class will demonstrate that even amateur gardeners can have a show of daylilies among their plantings. It will cover things you need to know about soil, optimal planting locations, and how to take care of daylilies long-term. The course will be taught by members of the Flint Hills Daylily Society. The Flint Hills Daylily Society is the sponsor of this class.
