Constantgardener, I would dig it this fall and put in a sunnier location. I have a couple I need to do that with myself. Also, if it is a drier location, or area where there are LOTS of other plants or the soil is compacting, it will also hinder it. I have some pretty whites that I wanted to have close to the house, but they are in a location that the soil is more compact (because the cat LOVES to lay there and he's made the dirt so hard!) and there are a lot of other plants with roots that like to spread all over! I give my daylilies a good fertilizer sprinkling...not a LOT or it can burn them... in the spring
when they are starting to pop up (like a 13-13-13) and then 3 weeks later do it again, and then put down Osmocote or Sam's Choice time release fertilizer to help them for a few months.
The Oriental was called Mixed Pastel Oriental, and I think I got it from either Brecks or Gurneys....possibly Springhill. Sorry I can't be more specific on the where, but I'll see if I can find it.
Wrennie you are SOOOO funny!! LOL
Iheartflowers, you did pick out a bunch of really lovely ones!!
Tamara, one suggestion I'd make is when marking them, those little tags never seem to hold the name. Take the marker, put the name on it and then spray clear coat (like the cheap wal-mart kind) over it. It will seal the name on there. Then in a couple years you won't have to wonder what it is. Good luck with the plants! When you plant them, fluff out the roots a bit, as usually by clearance time they are quite root bound. Also, if you can separate them some, and say there is 4 in a pot of the same thing, separate them, and plant them in a group about 2-3" apart. They like that for some reason and while they are doing their thing over winter, when spring
comes, you will normally have many more than just those 4. I had several I planted last year with 2 plants, but I separated them and this year I had 15-20. (I also grow in raised beds filled with a mix I make but not actual dirt. It has Black Forest Mushroom Compost, screened sanitized Top Soil (only about 10 bags in a 4x16' bed), Potting mix, potting dirt, and mostly professional mix. Then where I'm planting I add in terra crystals (like soil moist) to help keep the moisture down near the roots for when they need it. Put them around in the bottom of the hole and mix around so they aren't right against the roots so they won't rot them)
Thank you all for your compliments.
