I have some overgrown lilies and need to thin and transplant them. They've hardly bloomed this year. I've never
Lori J on Jul 21, 2012We bought an old house and after moving a rubble pile from behind our shed, discovered lilies in much the same shape (yellower). My husband was all for chucking them, but I saved some and transplanted them in brutal temps in the middle of the day (it was now or never). They shocked, looked awful and a year later, came in lush and bloomed profusely. As to the tramp, I am imagining it as much the fault of overcrowding but as the mother of a lazy lab that loves my hosta bed...could be an animal. I don't think you can kill a day lily. Darned hard to get rid of them when you have them where you don't want them.Helpful Reply
Becky H on Jul 21, 2012Well Lori, now I feel even worse than before. I bought some purple day lilies, and be darned if they didn't die. (My pale yellow ones are still going though.) So, if you need someone to kill off day lilies, I'll just cruise by and put the hex on them. 8-)Helpful Reply

Douglas Hunt on Jul 22, 2012Late summer is the best time to divide daylilies, Louise. Here are the "proper" steps to follow, but daylilies are generally very forgiving: http://www.usna.usda.gov/Gardens/faqs/DaylilyDivided.htmlHelpful Reply
