To bloom or not to bloom is the question we have asked over the years. When a growing healthy daylily proudly displays its beautiful blooms in the Spring of 2016 and decides not to in 2017 we ask why? So far we have found no answers but we keep trying. Is this normal or are we doing something wrong or is there something we are not doing. We are beginning to keep more detailed records and do further research to find the answers. The photos show the daylilies that bloomed in 2016 but were no shows in 2017. If any readers or followers have experienced this phenomenon please email or comment and tell us about it. It would help us in our research.
