Dividing Dayliles

When is the best time to separate overgrown daylilies? These plants are over three years old.

Regular division every 3 to 5 years will make the job of digging and dividing these fleshy rooted plants easier for you. It also keeps repeat blooming daylilies flowering, with little or no deadheading, throughout the season. Divide daylilies in spring as the plants emerge or late summer. Wait for the worst of the hot weather to pass before dividing these and spring flowering perennials. Post transplant care will be easier for you and the milder weather will be less stressful on the plants. Divisions made in late summer have the warm soil and cool temperatures of autumn to root and recover before winter arrives.
