day lilies

When can i separate day lilies. Will it hurt them when they are blooming?

Thanks for writing. You can divide your daylilies pretty much any time of the year, but doing so when they're in bloom could stress the plants and make them lose some of their flowers. So I'd probably wait until they were finishing up if it were me.
