Hi there - I'd like to start out by saying I am probably going to botch some terminology but I am hoping someone will see a picture of what is going on in my yard and *poof* - here's the solution:
And maybe I don't really have a problem other than I have a lot, lot, LOT of Daylilies growing in the front of my home. They were planted in the mid 70's by my mom, and then never separated by my dad who lived here up until he passed away last year. I am now trying to make sense of things within this house, and now that it's spring I'm tackling the outside.
Pulling up what I thought was *one* plant yielded a root system that looked like tubers, though I know they aren't. I am wondering how much, if any, of these bulbous thing-a-majigs could be cut back and still yield a flower?
I have also tried to pull out a large clump of many flowers, though all the bulb-like parts intertwine with one another and many broke off... How can I thin out these roots and yet still have SOME daylilies?
Thanks for any assistance you might be able to give to this new flower gal!
