I planted a bare root daylily a couple of months ago and when I realized it was being overshadowed by older, more mature plants nearby I decided to move it today(I didn't place it very wisely and its older neighbors were arching over it). Even though the plant looks fairly green and healthy above the crown, about 80-85% of the tubers were fairly rotten. I am wondering if the unusually cold late April and May that we experienced affected it.
I moved it to a new spot where it would get plenty of sun but now I am wondering...
-Should I just let it try to recuperate in its new spot and not unsettle it again
-Should I remove it and try to dry it out before resettling again?
Just curious if anyone has any suggestions. Again, the fans, though small, are a vibrant green and healthy...but the tubers/roots look very wet and shriveled.
Any advice would be welcomed.
