Davi said:Robert ....The crown rot you experienced is not the fault of your LA seller and is typical of planting daylilies when it is too hot in your zone. So you might have better luck buying from zone 8 or 9 sellers and/or planting after October 15 when you have better planting conditions.
Seedfork said:Robert .... I lost one plant to rot this year, and almost lost a second one... In just over a month after planting those plants (also from Georgia) the weather cooled off and we got rain, no rot when planting new plants during this period. ...So I agree it is best not to have to plant new daylilies when the weather is so hot, I have had problems before when doing this.
Lyshack said:I think daylilies like rainy, cold weather. I wouldn't wait for it to warm up to plant the newest 12 if you can. I've been taking advantage of the cold, wet weather here to move some plants far later in the season than I normally would.... I'm from up north, and don't know Texas conditions vs Florida or Ohio. But I'm curious if maybe some of them are dormants and would naturally die back now, especially after the stress of being moved? Or is the description of how they are dying back obviously rot? Tim
Seedfork said:"Yellow foliage, mushy right above the crown, and goodbye daylily..... Six dead so far..." to me that spells ROT. I seem to have heard about more people having rot this year than I remember from earlier years.
