Answer: "If it looks like a duck and acts like a duck.... " Daylilies are very hardy and resiliant plants, so I would expect it to bloom a year after transplanting. It is possible that it had been stressed by the move, by last year's drought and perhaps low fertility, or even that it had bloomed very early in the season before you moved it. (Some varieties bloom in late spring!) Although touted as tough and easy care plants, daylilies do appreciate a rich soil and plenty of moisture for peak performance; they also benefit from a few inches of organic mulch and an application of balanced fertilizer and/or compost early in the spring. Enjoy your mystery plant!
