Easy Tip for Fresher Foliage
Daylilies tend to go dormant after they bloom. If the foliage turns dry, you can just cut it down to a couple of inches without hurting the plants. Fresh, clean leaves will soon emerge.
You can visit Gardens of Glory, Jo and Jack Roberson's new public garden (adults, $6) on Fridays and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., from April through July 4. The garden, at 31706 E. Pink Hill Road, Grain Valley, Missouri, is also open July 2, 3 and 4 this year (when the daylilies peak). For details or to buy daylilies: 800/ 770-2777 or www.americandaylily.com.
