RE: Daylily Problem


I just had time to read all my old e-mail.  I think everyone's given you
good advise about your yellow leaved daylily. Does the foliage look healthy
or is it dieing? Daylilies can show variegation in their foliage with no
harm to the plant. If the foliage is dieing , I would just cut it off.  It
doesn't sound like a disease, but rather rot, animal damage, etc.  Digging
it up and examining the roots would give you the most information.  If there
is any rot, be sure to cut it all out before replanting the daylily.  Some
people suggest soaking the roots in a 10% bleach solution for 10 minutes.
Wash your knife as well. Then let the plant dry before replanting.  Heavy
soil and over watering should be avoided. Avoid fertilizer at this time as

Good luck!

Subject: [CHAT] Daylily Problem

I have a large number of healthy happy daylilies, but today I noticed
something new, and I suspect ominous, on one, purchased healthy last year.
The leaves on half the plant are yellow. I looked for insects and found
none, and saw no evidence of rust. Is this serious? Enough to warrant
digging and destroying the plant? I certainly do not want to endanger my
others. Help!
