A question about "So Lovely" from Oakes Daylilies. I have it planted in 3 spots. After blooming well in 2011 & 2012, none of the plants have bloomed this summer. In mid March they had a problem with aphids and spring blight, which I treated with Bayer "All in One Rose and Flower Care". Unfortunately, all my daylilies receive overhead watering from my irrigation, also they are in full sun after 10AM. About 2 weeks ago the leaves on So Lovely started to bleach out at their midpoints. There is also a lot of dead leaves at the base, they look as if I would expect them to look in Dec (they are semi-evergreen). On top of the problem which they had in the spring, are they suffering from sunburn or something else. I can't find any information about bleaching in daylily leaves. I have 20 other cultivars grown in identical conditions that are blooming and reblooming with vigor this summer. So its something specific to this particular cultivar. I am not ready to dig them up and I don't really have any other place to put them. Any suggestions about what I can do with them. Thanks
