Hi All! wavey I'm wondering why my daylillies aren't budding. Everywhere I look, I see plants with buds-but not mine. I moved them earlier this spring-probably later than I should have-they were about 12" high-could that be why? I also have them in only 1/2 sun-could that be a problem? Thanks for the help!

Hi rozy you might have shocked them when you moved them.and if you devided them they may not bloom till next year.but if you did not devide them they should bloom ok. but it might take awhile longer.daylillies in the shade bloom later than the ones in a sunny location.also some varitys will bloom at diffrent times.just give them time i think they will bloom if you did not devide them.i live in alabama and mine are just now starting to bloom real well.hope this helps just be patient with them.your friend in gardening.mike57

Thanks for the encouragement Mike! I didn't divide them. Maybe they are a different variety than many of the ones I see-I bought them rather late in the season last year when many others were already done blooming, and these were still going. Guess I'll wait and see, and if not, there's always next year. Thanks again!

Dear rozy 221,

Hi. I live in Arkansas and this is the first year I planted daylillies, Stella de Ora. I planted them at the beginning of May and they are now just starting to bloom beautifully.

I also was concerned with no blooms at first but after reading more about them I found out that by fertilizing them along with my other flowers I was encouring the foliage to grow not the blooms. I stopped fertilizing them and saw a difference within two weeks. Also I cut the stems to the bottom of the plant when they are finished blooming to avoid seed pods and promote more buds.

Hope I helped

PAB

Daylillies like to be left alone. Alot of stuff in my yard died during our years of drought but the daylillies kept right on keeping on. I don't want or fertilize mine. I do try to keep the weeds out and last year to help with this I mulched them. Your flowers are waiting until everyone elses have stopped blooming so they can shine alone.

I've never cut off the dead flower to make more buds. Should I be doing that?
