because they are in the way of progress/projects. I have planted dl before in July/Aug and they did fine. Still others in different parts of the country may not be able to plant this time of the year? What do you all think about buying dl in mid-summer?

I plant anytime I can in Iowa and keep them
Watered. So far I've had good luck. Might droop this year but they perk up next year.

I think some people plant new ones in pots anyway. I usually row all new one out together, so I can pamper them a tad and not forget anyone. Then later on I put them where I want them.

I do not like planting daylilies in July, August, or Early September. Mainly because it is too hot on me. Planting is one of the most enjoyable aspects of growing daylilies to me...If it can be done during decent weather, it can be a miserable chore during the hot summer months.

I'll echo some of what Larry stated, it's miserable to plant in the hottt muggy summer months down here in the sweat belt, but I have.

I have found that alot of the evergreens struggle in the spring to revive and increase slow. They just don't do as well for me. I have a few that are fine Shrug! weird.

I've planted all summer long, without trouble. I'm in zone 6a SW Ohio
To keep newly planted plants watered, I use gallon milk jugs with holes in the bottom. The milk jugs need to be put out early, or out of direct sun light, you don't want hot water.
Plant early morning, or just before dark, it will be kinder to you, and the plants.
I'm one of those people, who cannot pass up clearance plants, you get the best deals when it's scorching hot. Whistling

Larry, that is nice to know. didn't know if the dor would do well in that zone.

I guess I am not going to have any choice in selling them soon because I need to move them out from where they are. I planted way too many too close together and not enough walking space and now I can't get to them. Sort of triangle shaped beds... so now I am laying some walkways so I can get into them better.

I've quiet a few dormant's here as well. So far, knocking on wood, I've not lost any. We get just enough freezing weather during our 2 week winter to keep them growing.

Me too, never had any problem here despite being so far North.

@MAYO thanks for the links for the European nurseries, I've got some really nice ones coming from Gerald and Francois.
Have my eye on a couple of DeVito diploids as well and I'm giving myself over winter to decide whether to risk getting Printmaker (Lambertson) next spring--due to the daylily ban and the brexit uncertainty it might be necessary to take a chance on some newer ones whilst I have the option.
