Daylilies -- Dividing

By The Old House Web
Daylilies should be divided every three to five years to keep blooming levels high. Each bloom stalk usually signify two plants the following year; therefore, a clump producing five stalks will contain ten plants the following year.

Plants can be divided in early spring as plants emerge or after they bloom. Dig clumps carefully. Separate plants with a sharp knife or spade. Remove dead or diseased plants.

When transplanting post-blooming plants, cut back tops by half to limit wilting.
