The common orange roadside daylily Hemerocallis Fulva spreads with running roots similar to bamboo and chokes out the clump forming cultivars .It does not cross with the fancier cultivars it just overpowers them, The only way to avoid this is to eliminate them or at least keep them in a separate bed.
Thanks so much. This poses a philosophical problem as I don’t have anything against the tiger lilies.. just wanted more variety.
