I have a friend that has to dig up several of his daylillies to put up a garage. Can he just let these plants dry and store them this winter or does he have to pot them up while he decides where he wants them next year?

Thanks,
Rose

I agree He should pot them up but put them where they get some protection from the weather if he is in a cold climate. They usually don't freeze but if they aren't in the ground they are more likely to suffer damage.

Thanks for the advice! I told him that he could treat them like canna or elephant ears...Boy, was I wrong!
