How to control day lilies - I need to confine them to a specific area and prevent them from spreading and overrunning my garden bed.

If you are talking about the orange ditch lilies, I am not sure that is possible without constantly working at it. At least I have never had luck. I put them in a bed, and sprayed them with roundup when they got out of hand. That was about 5 or 6 years ago, and they still pop up. I have to stay vigilant to kill them off immediately. Hybrid daylilies should be no problem.

yvomaycha123,
Daylilies in general do not need much control if you are talking about registered named cultivars. If you are talking about Ditch Lilies, you might be better off to plant them in pots, or not plant them at all and just buy some nice daylilies that do not tend to spread.
