I planted my Day Lilies - Have a question

Guess Who is asking another question. Sorry to ask ANOTHER question. I have been outside this weekend, can you tell? [Big Grin]

I just finished planting my Dwarf Re blooming Day Lilies (2 June Bug, 2 Rainbow Magic, 2 Pardon Me and 2 Bo-Beep). I ordered them from Cottage Farms. They sent field grown dormant divisions. The planting instructions said to cover with 1 inch of dirt. It was hard to get the root down deep enough and the top level with the flower bed with just a inch of dirt left over. Remember, I am a beginner and I have trouble planting plants just so so .

If the flowers are covered with to much dirt will they be okay? Will they grow okay next spring/summer?

Thanks AGAIN for the advice [clappy]

a little too much dirt won't hurt that i mean a little bit.

if you're talking 6 inches too much, then THAT may be a problem!! [grin]

seriously, a little too much dirt covering won't do anything more than have them grow a little bit longer before they pop out of the soil. not a big deal at all!!

you'll have to post some pics next spring when they're all in bloom!!
