Day lily

Asked April 1, 2020, 12:24 PM EDT

For the past two summers my day lilies (Orange) have not bloomed and by early August they appear “beaten down” as if a wind or storm had blown them down. This flower bed is at edge of yard, facing Lake Okoboji. We have several trees in yard, including oak. Thank you for your thoughts and treatment suggestions.

The daylilies may not be getting enough sun. Daylilies prefer 6 or more hours of direct sun. Plants in shady locations are rather weak and may flop over by late summer.
