I am almost certain I have finally identified the issue some sickly little Daylilies have been having, as Nematodes. What controls give the best results in the Pacific Northwest?

Can you post some photos of those nematodes on the lilies' roots look like?

Can you tell us what the symptoms are? Usually nematodes would be diagnosed by laboratory testing unless there are obvious signs like knots on the roots. You would need magnification to see them.

And if it turns out to be nematodes, the only thing you can do is plant nematode resistant plants or no plants at all.

It was not nematodes. As to why this plant just would not grow is a mystery. I moved the so called Stellas to pots until next spring. So far, I don't think I have seen one blade of growth. A plant behaving this way, is really no fun. I am feeling like I may write them off as something I can't grow, and move on.

Daylilies are like grasses. They need heat and sun and a bit of neglect. After blooming they need nourishment and a resting period for uptake of nutrients. May take 6wks to bloom again when they are a reblooming variety. Not like zinnias that keep on blooming.
