I have a garden area where I planted three day lillies three summers ago. They have been happy and continue to do well. They have multiplied and I am sure it is time to dig them up and separate the bulbs. What time of year is best to dig them up?

thanks,

Mark

Fall is the best time to divide your day lilies. The cool weather and warm soil will help them get better established for next year.

I would make sure there is enough time before the weather gets too cold when I divide the daylilies.
I planted this daylily last fall. I didn't keep a record of its name, but I am thrilled with the rich red color. I am collecting daylilies. I am new to this forum and I hope I get the picture posted right.

You mean I didn't have to order it from a catalog and pay shipping? [Smile] Jeeze and I thought it was some special color! Well that's okay, it survived and I love the color. Thanks for giving me back the name. I am sure that is it because it sounds very familiar.
