What's wrong with my Hemerocallis? Anybody have any idea?

The foliage is lovely but the flower stems seem really short. I'm sure the flowers are supposed to be hidden amongst the foliage that way, are they?

It's growing in a sunny spot (sun from early morning to 3pm) but on dry soil in a rockery (although I do water it).

Unfortunately I have no idea which Hemerocallis it is.

On plant Hemerocallis




With some cultivars they are a bit hidden. It could also be caused by too much nitrogen in the soil = too much foliage growth (the foliage does look a bit lush)

Ah, right. Thanks. Is there anything I can do to counteract the nitrogen?

I'd suggest sending GoY member Simbad a PM because she's very experienced in growing these - she grows literally hundreds in her garden.

Oh right. I hope she doesn't think I'm intruding on her time if I do that. I'm always a bit funny about PMing people I've had no other interaction with. I'm guessing as you've suggested it she'd be ok with it though. Thanks.

It'll be fine Dioritt, i don't think folks mind others sending them Pms, it's not as if we're sending anything odd is it - we've all got the same interests !

It looks like 'Stella d'Oro' but Simbad would know better. People usually like to me asked, Diortt, we (I) crave attention! ha ha

I'm still trying to get my head around how the site works. I think I've figured out how to find Simbad now though so I'll ask :-)

How do I say thanks?
