Although these are known for long bloom periods, the length of time can vary depending on the age of the plant, the general cultural conditions, and the weather. After blooming, the plants occasionally form seed. When all of the blooms are finished on a stem remove it by cutting it close to the base. This will also encourage the plants to direct their energy into replenishing themselves rather than forming seeds. Rebloomers also appreciate an adequate supply of nutrients and moisture all through the growing season, as well as more frequent division, perhaps as often as every other year. If your daylilies have been in the ground for more than five years, or have become crowded, this might also explain the apparently short bloom season. Hope this info helps.
