#ProPlantTips for Care:

With a plant as sublime as Going Bananas, it's no surprise that caring for it is a true piece of cake! This perennial appreciates being planted in well-drained soil somewhere it can soak up the sun all day long. Going Bananas can handle partial shade, but it's happiest in full sun. Adding a 3-4 inch layer of mulch near the base is a great way to help control the moisture of the soil. It also keeps your garden nice and neat by keeping the weeds to a minimum!

To have as much flower power as possible, it's always a good idea to Deadhead the spent flowers. Select and prune out the flower stems close to the ground on stems where all flowers are finished blooming. Feel free to prune Going Bananas foliage back to about two inches in autumn after it's done blooming. Daylilies are susceptible to rust and some other foliage diseases so remove the foliage before winter prevents the overwintering of disease on the old leaves. You could also do this in the very early spring. Divide every 3-5 years to keep your clumps stress-free and growing vigorously.
