Don’s Daylily Divider

Don’s Daylily Divider is a very handy tool to have when you find yourself wrestling with large clumps of daylilies, trying in vain to get the fans to loosen their grip on each other and seeking for a way to get a tool into the clump without breaking off fans from their roots. The divider is two forked sections hinged together that open to work the daylily apart gently. You can order it from the website:
or see it in action on You Tube – search daylily divider.
