You can cover up daylilies without worrying about the protective covering impairing the photosynthesis or plant growth. It is also helpful in drought like situations as it acts as an anti-transpirant and reduces transpiration by 50%. This helps the plant to retain the moisture.

How Envy works?
When the sprayed Envy gets dry, it forms a semi-permeable film on the foliage which helps to protect the plant from direct contact with frost or reduces water loss by transpiration. This is effective in reducing drought stress and helps in reducing the need for irrigation. Rinse the sprayer well with water immediately after the use. You can store the undiluted Envy for about five years in well sealed containers away from heat and sunlight.
