I just put some mulch down covering ground cover plants and day
lillies with about 4" of processed wood mulch. Should I have covered
them or should I have just applied mulch around the roots leacing the
portion above the surface open to the elements?
I am in central North Carolina and always mulch with mini pine bark nuggets.
I generally have three inches of mulch around all my plants. Some of the
daylilies do go completely dormant and the foliage will disappear during the
winter. I do not move the mulch when they go dormant. They are dormant so
it does not matter. In spring, the best looking daylilies are the dormants.
The evergreens and semi-evergreens have mushy foliage until after the last
Thanks for the feedback. I'm in Hampstead, just north of Wilmington
and about a mile from the Intracoastal Waterway. The day lillies have
stopped bloooming and the leaves are turning yellow. They are covered
with mulch now. I'll probably cut the leaves off int he early spring.
Thank you for your help.
