What should I do and when?
I just realized when it bloomed today that what I thought was a third fan of Royal Hunter is really a third fan of Chorale Fantasy. NOT complimentary to each other in color OR form, LOL. I got both of these from the Lily Auction last year and this was their first year to bloom for me. So my question is since I can clearly see where the fans intersect...could I slice down between with a sharp spade and only remove the errant Chorale Fantasy? Or could I sort of dig around the CF part and try to pull it out? Or must I dig up the entire mismatched clump, parting them by hand and thereby disturbing poor Royal Hunter which was doing so well, settled in and growing? I fear I know that answer, but I feel badly about having to set RH back and making it work to re-settle itself instead of increasing.
And any way I go, can I do this as soon as all the blooms are done or better to wait for fall - or spring?
