STELLA D' OROS

Asked June 22, 2017, 4:01 PM EDT

Our stellas have not been divided in about 10 years. They are no longer producing flowers. We assume it is because shade took over their area. My question is, if we divide them and transplant them into a sunny area, would we possibly get them to flower again next year? Thank you so much for you time!! Karen

Although we usually recommend spring and fall for dividing daylilies, they are a tough plant and can be divided almost anytime (as long as you take care about providing enough water). They should bloom next year. In fact, it is possible that the reason they are not blooming for you is that they have not been divided in such a long time. Read here:
