Day Lilies

Is it unusual for day lilies to 'not' bloom the first year after dividing and transplanting? I have divided and transferred every 2 years and have had blooms on all transplants until this year??? tx, Ron Buss

It could be a climatic or environmental issue. The other reason could be the size of the division. Did you divide them into smaller divisions this time or divide them later in the year than before? We don't always get blooms the first year after we divide our daylilies - it usually depends upon the size of the divisions. Smaller divisions usually won't bloom the first year.

[Hello ; I have bought several hundred cultivars of hemerocallis through the years---most from Viettes.We are contemplating moving to the Kenai peninsula in Alaska to be near our son. I wonder how many of our daylillies could be taken with us-----such as Treasure gold;Lady Rebecca Staunton; etc? That is zone 3 for the most part.Would appreciate your thoughts on this. Sincerely ; Dr. Steve Vermillion[/b][/size][/size][/b]

Daylilies should be hardy in Zone 3. I think that your daylilies would grow fine on the Kenai peninsula. The climate is somewhat moderated by the coastal influence. I would take as many as you can! They should do fine up there. What a beautiful place to live. My sister lived in Anchorage for 25 years. We all loved to go visit!
