When do you cut back daylilies?
I've always waited until late fall to do this, but I would love to do it now if I wouldn't be hurting the plants performance next year.
I've always figured you should leave foliage intact as long as possible because that's what manufactures the food for a plant - you know, stored energy and all that, but in another thread a couple of people mentioned cutting back iris foliage at this time of year. I've always left that intact until fall for the same reason. Maybe I'm wrong.
Anyway - daylily foliage is really bugging me this year. Cut or not?
