Should I deadhead daylilies?
'Stella de Oro' is a reblooming daylily. Rather than bloom constantly, it normally has several bloom cycles each year. The longer the growing season, the more numerous the bloom cycles. You don't need to deadhead 'Stella de Oro' to get it to rebloom, but deadheading keeps the plants looking more attractive and prevents seedpods from forming. Developing seedpods can use up energy that would otherwise be put into forming more blooms. Daylilies will grow in partial shade but bloom less. If your 'Stella de Oro' daylilies bloomed only once last year, it's likely that your plants are not getting enough sunlight or someone sold you a variety that's not really 'Stella de Oro.' 'Stella de Oro' is such a well-known variety that many imitations have shown up. Your plant may have been mislabeled.
