I have enjoyed the day lilies, but most of the blooms are gone and I need to cut the stems off. It's not as much fun as it sounds like. I wanted perennials because they would provide color and not be a lot of work every year. Well, deadheading is a pain and there's no way I can keep that flower bed free of grass and weeds. I think I'll weedwhack the whole thing...weeds, grass, and deadheads.
