Hi, When is the best time to separate my DayLillies? They have not bloomed yet, but are getting pretty big in the area they are in. I want to plant some in the front of the house where I need some more plants. They are lovely when they bloom and long lasting. Their height is good to for what I need out front. Thanks,

Baltimore County Maryland

Daylilies are tough plants. They can be divided anytime but spring and fall are the best times.

Thanks for your reply. I should have ask you if it matters if they are blooming or not?

It's usually not a good idea to transplant while plants are in the middle of blooming. They need to put a lot of energy into producing blooms, and when you transplant you need them to put energy into getting reestablished, producing new roots, etc.
