I'm having a similar problem this year with our hemerocallis (seems a similar sort of plant, but probably isn't!). I don't fed it at all, and my watering leaves a lot to be desired. Only a few flower spikes this year compared to loads in previous few years. 

Identify this flower please

Its not Lavatera as we already have one plus its not a shrub. Could be a mallow although I think the foliage is different. And no scent that I can really discern Ladyann!

Snip them in half? That is disgusting! I collect them up on a damp evening (sometimes hundreds at a time) and tie them up in a nappy bag. I feel bad that they suffocate, but at least they die with their friends
