|How long after you dig them, wash them, dry them can they survive without being planted? I know they will be alright shipping them Priority Mail but how long is it safe to keep them out of the ground before they suffer some damage or die?|

|Sometimes when I get an order of daylilies that I don't have time to plant they get put in a bucket with some water over the roots but not covering the crown. They will be ok for weeks just be sure to change the water every day or two if your weather is getting close to freezing I would set them in a garage overnite until the daytime temperature has warmed up. |
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

|I have thrown discarded seedlings on my compost pile up in the fall, and have had them survive the winter out in the open when it got down to 5. One even had the audacity to BLOOM the next year!!! But, seriously, I've even "heeled" them in for up to six weeks when I was uber busy and they all survived.|
Most daylilies can take a licking and keep on ticking.
