The Q&A Archives: rebloom on daylily and crape myrtle

Question: How can I make stell de oro daylilies rebloom - they are in sun.
Also, some crapes myrtle have no flowers and buds but others are full of bloom. All are in sun.

Answer: If you remove the flower stalks from your daylilies they should send up more flower stalks all summer long. The larger the clump, the more flowers you can expect. After your crape myrtles have finished blooming, prune them back and they should bloom again. I'm not sure why one of your crape myrtles has developed flower buds but not flowers. You may have to be a little more patient with the plant. When the environmental conditions are just right for that particular plant, it will open the flowers. Until then, continue to give it TLC. Good luck with your landscape!
