Daylily Buds Eaten By Deer Will New Buds Form And Bloom This Season

Question From: Slatington, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: Dear Nancy, If a deer eats all the buds off a daylily plant early in the season, will that plant form new buds and bloom before the season is over? thank you for your help!

A: Sadly, some of the newer daylilies will form new scapes, others will not. Sorry for your loss. I sprayed my daylily plants with PlantSkydd and so far so good. Must be reapplied every six weeks or so, depending on the amount of rain. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
