I was just wondering if anyone else has observed this, but it seems like MANY of my lilies are starting to rebloom again. Do you think this is because of the cooler summer, compounded with a lot of rain?

I would say my peak blooms were mid to end of July.

Just curious if anyone else has noticed this? Things that are reblooming for me are Pink Fang, Rosy Returns etc..things that I've never seen/experienced before.

I have had more rebloom this summer than I can ever recall having. I think it is all the rain we have had.

I would have to agree with you folks, I have and am still having more rebloom than I can remember in the past. It has been a cooler summer here in Massachusetts. Just today I noticed a new scape coming up on a plant that I thought was all done! I am also noticing more prolifs forming this year and I would attribute that to the cooler weather and more rain.
Life is short, enjoy the ride!

Was glad to see this post because until this summer, I had never seen rebloom. I also am enjoying a lot of rebloom.

My weather has been pretty much the same but I am seeing less rebloom. (I don't get much to begin with.) I am seeing a great deal less rebloom than last year on 'Early and Often" and 'Apricot Sparkles'. One seedling that is a prolific rebloomer (but otherwise poor) has not done so at all this year.

I have rebloom on eight of approximately 60 Daylilies that were planted before this year. Exotic Treasure had instant rebloom for all four original scapes, although I didn't see a single bloom open all the way. They all resembled Tulip blooms. I've only been growing Daylilies for four years, so not sure how much rebloom would be normal. I also have what I assume is a bud builder, still going strong.
