Recently moved to home with nice backyard landscaping in Maryland
The yard includes a stand of day lillies that bloomed for several weeks in late June and early July.
Can the foliage be cut back now without injuring the plants?

About your question:
The same question was asked this morning in another thread : Trimming/tidying daylilies after flowering
Perhaps it is easiest to read the comments there Thumbs up
