This is the 3rd year with the Ming Toys in my garden. Last year they did not rebloom----they never STOPPED blooming until of course "winter" here in south Florida. They bloom their hearts out! They are so tough..we've had terrible drought with water restrictions, they are in full blazing sun and thrive! I LOVE them. Contrary to what most people believe...daylilys DO grow this far south and do quite well. But don't call the county extension office & ask the master gardeners because they'll tell you daylilys do not grow here.

This plant takes well to moving. Seems to withstand upheaval with minimal transplant shock. I have moved my entire inventory(250 plants) 5 times in the last 6 years, and the Ming Toy, Fairytale Pink and Stella D'Oro came thru beautifully here in Virginia with no disturbance of bloom. I have transplanted in full bloom with no ill effects.
