Fertilizing Daylilies

We use balanced 13-13-13 fertilizer on our daylilies but one with a higher phosphorous content is also appropriate (such as 12-18-12). It's best to wait until the roots are established before fertilizing. Granulated fertilizer should be applied to the soil around the plant....try to keep it from direct contact with the foliage. Water soluble fertilizer is easy to apply but should not be applied over the bloom since most brands will stain the flower. We like to fertilize established plants early in the spring. Plants can also benefit from a second application in mid summer.
