Does a daylily root/tuber have to be attached to some part of the crown in order to survive and establish a new plant? This good-sized tuber broke off a very recently dug plant and before I go to any effort to get it to become a new plant I'd like some advice as to the possibility of success. I plan to put it in a pot, not directly in ground right now.
Thanks, Nancy.

Yes it would need to have at least a piece of crown attached to grow into a new plant.
