In the future, it will only be necessary to occasionally water the plantings on especially dry days, cut off dead parts, fertilize and prepare the plants for winter.
Attention! Daylily Bonanza can grow in one place for more than 10 years.
Selection and preparation of the landing site
The plant does not have any special requirements for the place of cultivation. Daylilies are not afraid of wind and drafts, they feel good both in sunny areas and in partial shade. In the southern regions, it is still advisable to protect them from direct sun and plant them in the diffused shade of trees. In areas with a cold climate, the daylily will grow better in high flower beds, illuminated by the sun.
Before planting, the site is dug up. As a substrate, loams enriched with compost are optimal. Heavy clay soils are mixed with sand and humus is added, and a little clay and compost are added to sand-predominant soils.
Important! Providing drainage to the Bonanza daylily is vital, as root rot is detrimental to the plant.
So that the daylily does not suffer from rust, when planting, you should avoid the neighborhood with the patrinia. Also, you can not plant it in areas where spores of fungal diseases from previous crops could remain.
The distance that is maintained between the bushes in group plantings depends on the design task and can be from 40 to 90 cm.
The Bonanza daylily is planted in spring or autumn, given that it will take about 30 days for it to fully root. Summer planting is also possible, but should be done in cool weather.
Planting a Bonanza daylily is not at all difficult, the main thing is to adhere to the rules:
- the volume of the planting pit should be 2 times the size of the root ball;
- a nutrient substrate is poured into the hole, consisting of a mixture of earth with peat and compost;
- remove dry and damaged roots of the seedling;
- the leaves are pruned at a level of 12-15 cm from the ground;
- the roots are well spread, the plant is placed in a hole, deepening the root collar by no more than 20 mm;
- the pit is covered with a nutrient mixture, the soil is well compacted and watered;
- seedlings are mulched with peat.
After planting, the daylily is watered so that its roots accumulate the necessary moisture
Watering and feeding
The root system of the Bonanza daylily is capable of receiving water from deep soil layers, so drying out of the surface layer of the earth does not harm the plant. Mulching with natural materials helps to retain moisture. The flower practically does not require watering. If dry weather is established, the culture needs additional moisture, the procedure is especially relevant during the flowering period. Young plants are also regularly watered.
Watering is carried out at the root in the morning or in the evening, when direct sunlight does not fall on the plantings.
If the Bonanza daylily grows on poor soil, it is useful to feed it with a complex of mineral fertilizers for flowers three times a season (after the snow melts, in late spring and late summer). After fertilization, the plants must be watered. Top dressing begins in the second year after planting, because with proper soil preparation, there are enough nutrients for a young plant.
Bonanza daylily pruning
During the season, dried flowers are removed, and daylilies need radical pruning of leaves and peduncles only in autumn, when the aerial part of the plant dies off.
Attention! When pruning before winter, young green leaves are left.
Preparing for winter
An adult Bonanza daylily does not need winter shelter. The plant is well watered, the dried aerial part is cut off and destroyed, then the place of growth is covered with earth and mulched. Young plants planted in the current season should be covered with spruce branches in the first winter.
The best way to propagate a Bonanza hybrid is to divide an adult bush. This way you can preserve all its varietal characteristics. In the middle of spring, when vegetative processes begin at the Bonanza daylily, it is dug up, the root system is divided into the required number of parts, and then planted. The plant can be propagated in this way throughout the summer, but at a later date, it must be borne in mind that it will bloom only the next year.
You can divide adult Bonanza daylilies into any number of bushes
Attention! Seed propagation is rarely used.
Plants of the Bonanza hybrid obtained from seeds lose the decorative qualities of the mother bush.
Diseases and pests
The Bonanza hybrid, like other daylilies, is less susceptible to disease. However, gardeners may experience heterosporia, a fungal disease in which brown spots with fungal spores appear on the leaves. Most often, daylily suffers from heterosporia in humid warm weather. You can get rid of the disease with the help of special copper-containing preparations. For prophylaxis in the fall, it is necessary to remove and burn all dry leaves and peduncles.
Sometimes the roots of the Bonanza daylily are attacked by onion mites. Pests are difficult to spot, but damaged plants stagnate and turn yellow quickly. In order not to bring the tick to the site, it is worth washing the roots of the acquired seedling with soap. If the insect has already damaged the plantings, the seedlings are dug up, the root system is washed, the damaged parts of the rhizomes are removed and treated with karbofos. The plant is planted in a new place. The soil in which the pests remain is thoroughly watered with boiling water. This is enough to kill pests.
Daylily Bonanza is a garden culture that has rightfully earned popularity among gardeners in our country. Its wide range of applications for landscape decoration, the amazing beauty of flowers with minimal maintenance makes the daylily one of the most popular ornamental plants.
Reviews of the daylily Bonanza
Shah Sophia, 40 years old, Zelenograd
I love flowers very much, but I will never grow capricious plants that require any special care. Shelter for the winter, weekly watering, fertilizing, loosening, haircut 2 times a year, collecting caterpillars in a jar - not for me. In my opinion, the less effort you put into beauty, the more you have to enjoy this beauty. So only lilacs and many, many different daylilies grow from my decorative ones. Including Bonanza. They grow and bloom themselves, and I am only happy.

I was looking for flowers for my mother's garden. She loves flower beds very much, and she always had roses and many, many annuals. With age, it became difficult for her to take care of them, and she does not want to start the garden at all, so 4 years ago I planted daylilies at her place, and Bonanza too. They look gorgeous. Even when not in bloom, the bushes seem pretty. This beauty is practically effortless.
