It might be time to dig and divide your daylilies. When they are overcrowded and have to compete for moisture and nutrients, they won't bloom as prolifically as they could. I'd dig and divide them and while you have them out of the ground, amend the soil with some organic matter before replanting them. Organic matter will help replenish the soil, loosen it for good root penetration, and help the soil hold moisture. Best wishes with your garden.
