Growing up, they suppress all weeds.
The main care is to make top dressing. Complex fertilizers must be added immediately after thawing the soil, at the end of May, during the budding period, as well as in the last month of summer. In hot weather, the daylily must be watered. Water is poured directly under the root, being careful not to wet the green mass. If the liquid is too cold, it is warmed to room temperature. The soil near the bush is regularly mulched. If necessary, add fertile soil. It is important to avoid exposing the roots of the orange daylily. In late autumn, old and young plantings are sprinkled with compost.

Delenki are seated at a distance of half a meter from each other, placing the root collar at soil level. If the plant is deeply buried, its leaves will begin to turn yellow, and if placed too superficially, it will not withstand frost. At the end, the plantings are watered.

Then the rosettes are planted in pots filled with a mixture of sand and peat, and the leaves are cut to 7 cm. In the spring, young plants are transplanted to a new place.
