Q.Naked ladies

Zone 87832 | Barbara Fazio added on April 23, 2017 | Answered

I have about 25 naked ladies that I just dug up. My friend who gave them to me a few years ago said they were getting too much water, hence the yellowing leaves. I want to replant where they won’t get as much water. The bulbs are beautifully healthy with long roots. Before I replant, do I cut the foliage off?

You should keep the leaves on when you transplant them. Also, if you've had problems with excessive water, check the drainage in the new planting location to make sure it is well-drained.
