My elderly friend has an ailing Hemerocallis in her garden. I promised to ask the experts on GoY to see if anyone could suggest a remedy! The plant has a number of yellowing leaves...but is flowering normally. Could it be a trace element deficiency, or a result of the weather perhaps?

Thanks in advance.

On plant Hemerocallis

mineral deficencies tend to show as mottled leaves and on nearly all the plant but it wouldnt hurt to give it a feed, or even just some epsom salts teaspoon in about 1/2 gallon.

so really what i am saying is 'i dont know'

Might be a bit of rust due to the weather. These plants in my experience are pretty much trouble free so I wouldn't worry too much unless the whole plant starts to be ailing.

Her daughter wondered if it was 'stressed' because of the weather.

Thanks, Sbg - I'll suggest that to her. :-)

I have just bought one from the garden centre it had a few leaves exactly the same, I just broke them off. Let's hope these plants recover.

I do hope so - Eva has a lovely garden, and enjoys her plants.
