Instant Daylily Garden by Moving Clumps

I needed to move daylily clumps from an area in the backyard and was able to create an instant daylily garden in the front yard.

Great job, Rita. You did go through a lot of moving and deleting to achieve the look you wanted. We'd all love to see photos as they bloom!

I never thought of mulching with straw. Do you leave it and what happens to it or do you rake it up come fall for mulch? Doesn't it mold when it rains?

Thanks!

I put spring bulbs in between both the rows and the clumps. Both tulips and crocus. The tulips are coming up now but the crocus are blooming. I really looks lovely.

Nope, I just leave it. Eventually the earthworms eat it all up. Good for the soil.

Thanks. I think it is going to look stunning this spring with the tulips and then stunning come summer with the daylilies.
