It looks like these proliferations are eager to bloom and appear to be growing buds while still on the mother plant. Is this "normal?"

I've seen it a couple of time myself. I've also noticed proliferations to be more abundant the more pampered the plant. Competing with weeds and dry spells all but eliminates the prolifs in my garden.

Yes it happens here all the time and on just about all the prolifs.

Do Daylilies bloom more than once?

Hi normanich Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

Well it depends. If you live in an area where there is a long season you can get lots of rebloom scapes on daylilies. Most of ours will send up 2-4 sets of rebloom scapes before the end of our season. If you live in an area with a shorter season you may not get rebloom unless you have some extra early or early bloomers that will send up more. If you have late bloomers you may not get rebloom.

Watering and feeding you daylilies will also help them to rebloom

Welcome!
Not all daylilies rebloom, you would need ones capable of rebloom, then the area you are in and the care you give them would also be a factor like tink3472 said. I doubt that she grows anything that does not rebloom, or at least is indicated as being a rebloomer.

I have not had a daylily yet that has not rebloomed even if it was not listed as a rebloomer. If they come from the north sometimes they don't have a long enough season to know if they rebloom or not.

Welcome! Norman! The ATP database can also reassure you about daylilies that are widely expected to be very reliable re-bloomers. Some entries even note where some are instant and all-summer re-bloomers (check the comments section below the pictures in the daylily's database entry to see what growers have noted). You can look up any registered daylily by name at:

Yes, prolifs bloom. It can be inconvenient if you are hankering to pot them.

Welcome, Normanich. Welcome! Welcome!

Most will rebloom. Some many times. I think the secret is water.

These daylilies pretty much bloom all year and started in April this year.
(Have no idea what they are)

Love it!! I'm hoping for some rebloom here, now that I'm in a warmer zone! I try to only purchase daylilies that are listed as reblooming, but have only had one do that so far. My growing season wasn't long enough before, so I'm hoping that it will be better here!

It would be awesome to get some more prolifs as well. I've only had maybe 3 or 4!
