How to Divide Daylilies

The daylily is one of the easiest perennials to divide. "Daylilies are bulletproof—they can take a lot of abuse," says Roger Cook, This Old House landscape contractor. According to Roger, the best time for division is either in early spring, as soon as new growth is visible above the ground, or in the fall, after they have finished blooming. Divisions bloom sparsely in the first year, but once they are established they grow in beauty and number of flowers.
