Center Event is one of my daylilies that I have not been able to make happy. I have it in a good spot where other daylilies thrive. But Center Event will barely increase and bloom. Scapes are short and bud count is very low. I do like the flowers but I'm not sure what else I can do to make it happier. It is not particularly happy with Spring temperature fluctuations as it is a fairly early bloomer for me. Despite being a dormant I suspect this daylily would prefer to be someplace with a milder winter.
