Update: Daylily disease of 2012

I remember us talking about this last summer and I'm curious for some updates from others.

Last summer almost all of my daylilies got some sort of ailment where the leaves got these really ugly yellow streaks. It progressed until most of the leaves or a lot of them at least died completely. However it wasn't limited to my garden. Almost all the public plantings I noticed in Minneapolis had it and in fact when I traveled to another city 70 miles north of me, I noticed it up there too. I thought maybe it was a seasonal thing and next year would be better.

Well, I think it may have totally killed a lot of my plants - not necessarily a bad thing 'cause I was going to get rid of a lot of them anyway, but generally I like to make the decision on who lives and who gets composted. Daylilies have a reputation for being so tough, it kind of surprises me.

How about you?

I hope the disease wipes out some of those awful Stella D'Oro plants I see everywhere. They are like weeds.
