This enduringly popular Hemerocallis has fragrant, delicate pale pink flowers with a lime green to yellow throat. The blooms appear on erect stems during mid-summer, standing above a mound of narrow, arching grass-like foliage.
'Catherine Woodbery' is perfect for coastal locations as she is tolerant of salt spray. Pick a sunny or partially shady spot with a good, moisture retentive soil and she will thrive in your borders and beds. Divide this plant every four to five years in late summer or autumn.
We recommend watering the Daylily immediately upon planting them. Daylilies do not like to get dried out, but they do not like to be kept in a soggy environment. Unless you are in an extremely dry climate, regular watering after planting is unnecessary. As is common, Daylilies prefer a heavy watering once a week as opposed to a daily light watering.
Regularly weed the area around the plant to avoid root confusion when you go to transplant or separate your bulbs.
Remove dead blooms and leaves if you prefer a manicured appearance. In the late fall, trim the remaining dead leaves down to ground level, and place mulch on top of the root system to protect the roots from cold freezing winter month temperatures.
In the north, spring planting is advised. In colder climates, if daylilies are planted in the fall, they often die because they do not have time to form new roots and begin to anchor before winter arrives. Some experienced gardeners in the north will fall plant, but they consider the hardiness of the plant and take preventive measures like mulching.
In the south, the best times to plant are early spring or very late fall. Note that daylilies planted in July-September face a high probability of rotting if humidity and temperatures are high (i.e. over 90 degrees).
