Sprigs: daylilies stored for the winter

In the fall I wrote about the day lilies I dug and layered in peat moss inside of insulated containers. 

Six months later I opened up the first batch. I was amazed to find that they sprouted in tune with some inner clock, and had developed lengthy roots. 

The shoots were pale, and long, as the plants sought light. 

But once I transplanted them back into the yard, they greened up quickly and look robust.

I have more than I can use, so if you want some--holler!
