Hi friends,

I live in North Texas (zone7b) and very interested in having some daylilies in my garden this year, I saw that you can plant daylily in Spring and Fall, what is the different ? is planting during one season better than the other. If anyone know which one would be better for me that would be great !

Thank you again...

I'm more or less a100 miles west of you. I receive plants in both seasons. Both work equally well. If the plant is mature enough, planting in the fall gives it more time to establish and thus give you bloom. But a good plant with its needs met is likely to bloom even if planted in the spring. Last year all the plants I ordered came from way up north from colder zones (a lot colder) than we are. By the time the suppliers had thawed out enough to dig, I already had plants blooming. All but two of the plants still went on to bloom for me, even though I had received and planted them in the unforgiving heat of a Texas summer. It was actually sorta nice because they bloomed with the latest bloomers. I expect now that they've been in place for a year, they will bloom earlier. I've had extraordinary good experiences with the vendors on the plants they've supplied. Even those that came as single fans have gone on grow well.
