Hemerocallis are generally very reliable, good in fertile soil in full sunshine in soil that does not dry out too much in summer. The soil may be too dry, or challenged by the roots of  trees or shrubs.

It is possible that they have eelworm or virus disease, but this is unusual. See about the water requirement and give some feeding, then if there is no improvement, consider replacing them.
