I have brought several plants and they all die. Spider mites got the latest ones but the plant turned yellow and is dying. I put them in lots of sun but I do not think it was deep enough. What is the problem?

Before planting day lilies again, amend your soil with compost or other organic matter so it drains well yet holds a little moisture. Plant your daylilies and then every week or so hose them off to discourage spidermites. Spidermites like dry, dusty places so if you regularly rinse the plants off, the spidermites should find a better place to live. Good luch with your daylilies.
