I am in region 14. All my fans were coming out real nice and green. The second week of march we fertilized and a few days later we had a few hatd frost, now fans look like the color has faded did we burn them, or did the freezes do that to them. Confused

Do you know how much fertilizer you used and what the analysis was? I think it is more likely the freeze, if it was very hard - do you know what the lowest temperature was? Are you able to post a picture so we can see what they look like?

I agree with Sue that it sounds like damage from the cold. My daylilies were covered with about 4 inches of heavy, wet snow last year. After the snow melted, some had foliage that looked whitish and pale. They looked fine later on, so the damage didn't last.

I am also in Region 14 and I also believe it was the cold.

Thank you all for your advice. J.George thinks so too. Can't wait to see all blooms.
