I have a garden with a row of 12 stella doras. They were planted 4 years ago and have trhived each year. They were doing great this summer until our sprinkler system stopeed working. I didn’t realize that teh plants weren’t being watered until it was too late. Now the leaves are completely dried up. It is only September, so I don’t think this has to do with winter weather. Should I try to cut back the dead leaves and soak with water? Or, do you think these plants are dead?

Daylilies are tough so I doubt they are dead.  I’d cut all the dead leaves off and give the area a good soaking.  They may even sprout a few new leaves and that is OK.  Give them a good soak once a week as long as it stays warm and dry.  They will be back next year.
