Iris and Daylilies

It is that time of year to dig up, divide and replant iris and daylilies. In my own yard in the few sunny areas I do have some daylilies. The main reason to divide them is that after a few years of growing they need to be split up so they perform better and so that you get some more blooms. If you have seen a big clump of daylilies or iris and they don’t seem to be blooming much in season, it’s often because they have not been divided. As an added bonus dividing and splitting gives you more plants for your yard or better yet, share with a friend or neighbor.

As for those daylilies in my own yard it’s been a few years and time to split those on the back hill.
