Sue, do your measure, count, record in any case. Either this year is an anomaly and your record this year can be held up against 'normal' years as a bottom line benchmark, or this year will be the new 'true reflection' (shut my mouth.)
Every year is a true reflection of how a plant performs. Include weather data so that in X number of years you can look at your records and say something like; "Look at that week of high temps in March."
Or don't and enjoy your daylilies.
Went to a regional in Wichita years ago, a hail storm swept through one tour garden the evening before the buses arrived. Our host had one bloom, yep, just one to show, MILK CHOCOLATE Carney 1967;
