Answer: Daylilies need full sun all day or for at least a half a day to bloom. They also do best in a rich soil that is evenly moist yet well drained, meaning damp like a wrung out sponge. Since this is a reblooming variety, it is especially sensitive to a lack of nutrients and/or moisture as well as needing ample sun. It is best to transplant or divide this plant in very early spring just as it begins to grow, or in late summer. However, if you are taking the entire plant and are careful to dig the entire root system, you could probably move it now. If possible, do it right before a rainy spell or move it in the late afternoon and consider giving it some shade for a day or two after the move. Make sure to keep it well watered this summer while it re-establishes.
