|I think most people who have grown daylilies long enough to have transplanted many have run across an occasional plant that for some unaccountable reason just did not seem to take too well to being moved. I have read about hybridizers actually not registering some plants because even though they were very promising, they just did not take to being transplanted and took too much time to recover. Do you have any plants like that?
I will start with the one plant that totally amazed me with its poor performance after being transplanted:
'My Path': Back in 2014 it was doing great. It has never come close to this look again.

|Not really so much from transplanting, Larry as I grow all mine in pots. I do have a couple that take ages to come back after dividing, the worst for me is POLISH COCKTAIL --doesn't half sulk!|

|I have 1 seedling whose leaves remain very light green/yellowish after moving it to my allotment..
even while it is in a border with dozens of other seedlings that are doing great!
It díd flower very nicely, but the leaves look sickly

|Alien Contact has never been good at transplanting, takes a couple of years to bloom & maybe not bloom well then. I've had it for years, & transplanted it a couple of times early on, thinking it wasn't happy where it was, but still didn't do anything. I think I had it 5 years before it bloom. I wouldn't have transplanted it the last time, it isn't a fast multiplier, but apparently I planted it last time way too close to some aggressive bulbs. This was its best bloom year ever though after transplanting 2 years ago. If it doesn't do equally as well next year, I'm giving up on it.|
