How do you get rid of ditch lilies?

You can also spray the invasive day lilies with a nonselective herbicide such as glyphosate to kill them. Dig out the roots once the tops of the plant have turned brown. The herbicide will take at least two weeks to work, and you may need to reapply to get complete control.

In respect to this, will vinegar kill daylilies?

Mint and daylilies each tolerate a wide range of growing conditions, but boiling water will scald plant tissue and cook roots. Spray mint with vinegar or other acetic acid using a household spray bottle. Mint needs alkaline soil to grow and the acid will kill the leaves and leech into the soil.

Similarly, how do you kill tiger lilies? Use a spade or garden fork to dig 6-to-8 inches deep around each tiger lily clump. Cut under the plants and lift to remove the bulbs from the soil.

Also, how do you stop daylilies from spreading?

There are many flexible borders you can buy that are made to sink into the ground and surround the plant, thus preventing the horizontal spread of the tubers. Most are marketed to contain bamboo plants. Dig a trench about 6 inches around your flowers, and insert the border, overlapping the ends. Fill it in with soil.
