What should I do for my daylilies over the winter?

Care for Your Daylilies in the Winter

Daylily bulbs are very hardy and do not require very much attention. However, you may want to provide your daylilies with a winter mulch. These winter mulches should not be soft in nature, as you do not want them to mat down or flatten. The best winter mulches for daylilies are straw, hardwood leaves, or hay. A layer of six inches of winter mulch works well for mature daylilies. Newly planted, or transplanted, daylilies benefit from having a foot of mulch added to their growing sites.

Any advice regarding daylilies that are in containers in North Carolina? I'm a novice and have no clue what to do with them in the winter. Should they be transplanted out of the container? Should they be cut back or leave the stems as they are? Many thanks.
