Should I fertilize daylilies?

Daylilies are heavy feeders. Fertilizing with a balanced granular or liquid fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10, is recommended. If using a granular fertilizer be careful not to apply the fertilizer directly on top of your daylilies, as it can burn the foliage. Apply fertilizer each spring after the risk of frost has passed. Additional applications can be made as needed just prior to bloom and then again late in summer or fall. Fertilizer is also recommended at time of planting new divisions.
