And alas, it's raining again this evening. I didn't garden today; taking a day of rest. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get back out. May have to wear my HazMat suit since yesterday I received loads of bug bites through my clothes and with spray. Determined little insects. Aw, the hazards of gardening.
Sun tutorial: Most daylilies do best in full sun in the Midwest. Some hold their color longer if they have some afternoon shade. Usually if they're in too much shade, the bud count will diminish, the scapes will be less strong, (meaning they will flop on the ground) the plant won't increase in size as fast/much and the colors may be different than advertised. Seldom will it die unless it's competing with very strong tall plants. Even then it may just sit there - alive but not blooming and looking sad once uncovered. If this matted cover happens early in the summer, it will not send up scapes/flowers the rest of the season even if uncovered later. They are genetically programed to do certain things at certain times and they stick with the program.
