Daylily: About a month ago, my cousin Donna asked that I send her pictures of some of my daylilies. One of the pictures I sent was of a seedling (still under evaluation) that keeps drawing my attention. The cross is 'Margaret Stanton Memorial' x ('Truly Angelic' x 'J.T. Davis'). We had a small Christmas Eve gathering at Donna's house. Donna's daughter Lauren, who is an artist, had a special gift for me. She had painted a picture of this daylily. I wanted to share not only the daylily, but a picture of Lauren's painting. arrow down

Daylily: Sdlg. 24_17 - Recent robin discussions on temperature changing bloom color seem to beg for photos rather than descriptions. I would like to send two examples of burgundy changing to purple with rising temperatures, and am sending photos taken in early June (burgundy) and three weeks later (purple) of my seedling 24-17 (6.5 inch dormant dip, 30 inches high).

Daylily: FLIRTING WITH BLUE (Reimer, 2020) - The two remaining ones that I wanted to post (in the category of bloom color variation) are of my 2020 Introduction FLIRTING WITH BLUE, a 32" high, 6.5 inch, dormant diploid. In cool weather, the "blue" eye is a deep blue, but in hot weather, the eye often pales to lighter lavender (like so many do). The photographs that caught my interest this year were the color difference between the last bloom on an old scape (top picture, faded eye) and the first bloom on a new scape (bottom photo, deep blue eye). Both photos were taken 6/23/20 on the same plant. Looks like the old scape just didn't have what was needed to produce the deep color, which I had not considered before. arrow down

Daylily: ANGIE'S FANCY, (Poos-Krattli, 2014). It's hard to believe that these 2 pictures are of the same daylily. Solid violet on normal warm summer days, and on cool days, the petals show a white background and an eye that is almost invisible on warm days. It is a dormant dip, 26" tall with 6" blooms, and has 4 branches and 24 buds. Parents are unknown. (Kathy's Website is: http://www.naturesmelodynursery.com/kathy.html) arrow down

Daylily: NO PLACE LIKE HOME, (Herrington, K., 2008). I cajoled this stunner from Rita Isgro a couple of summers ago. I was picking up 'Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin' (Isgro, 2016) as a Region 2 Photography Contest Prize and just couldn't leave without a split. Thanks again, Rita. arrow down

Daylily: LINDA SIERRA, (Peat, 2006). Like you, I'm frequently asked by garden visitors which of the daylilies is my favorite. I often say, "The one that's blooming today." When pressed, though, I always come back to 'Linda Sierra.' The combination of the soft, lavender colors, green/yellow throat and pleasant shape (with some tiny, tiny teeth) just hits my "Like Button" dead center. arrow down

Daylily: GOD'S GIFT TO WARTHOGS, (Bachman, 2008). What a crazy name. I'll have to remember to ask Dan where it came from. Regardless, it's another of his rapidly clump forming, densely blooming kids. Fortunately, the neighborhood warthogs haven't found it yet! arrow down

Daylily: Seedling 17-13-02 - I've been working on developing white tetraploid daylilies for quite a few years. They are challenging but I'm making steady progress in making my seedlings lighter while adding improvements in branching/bud count and height. All these below are crosses of my own seedlings. This one even reblooms! Ginny's webpage is http://www.gardenpathperennials.com arrow down

Daylily: Seedling16-13-01 - There are many decent diploid whites available but I have found them to lack the substance I want to stand up to rain, sunshine, and the dreaded combination. White tetraploids are more satisfying to me in the garden. They aren't fazed by the sun or rain, and laugh at the combination. This seedling has a beautiful form and finish to it. I fear I wear it out each summer when I set so many pods on it. arrow down

Daylily: Seedling 15-10-01 - Another seedling I use extensively in pod setting is this beauty. From both a distance and up close, it grabs your attention due to the 7" flowers that are flat, flat, flat so you see the entire bloom. It is a wonderful 40" tall and dormant too! When you analyze the 'whiteness' of flowers, you see that they are either of a yellowish or pinkish cast. I prefer the pinkish versions like this one because they look 'whiter' to me from a distance. The background blooms are of the yellowish variety. arrow down

Daylily: Seedling 13-14-01 - Not only is this another heavily substanced white tetraploid seedling, but it is also a lofty height above most of the other seedlings under evaluation. A bonus is its later season bloom which is extended by bud-building. Notice the empty and browning scapes in the background. Love that green throat. It is expected to be a 2022 introduction. arrow down

Daylily: Kindly Light, (LeMoine J. Bechtold) of Colorado. A 70 year old golden oldie I'll never part with. Still widely available and winner of many awards. In Sydney Edison's book 'A Passion For Daylilies' it is written that "To daylily people, a spider is a flower style, originated in the early forties by LeMoine Bechtold". The chapter about Bechtold has awakened my desire to read that entire book all over again. Few more photos here: http://www.daylilydiary.com/day_kindlylight.htm arrow down

Daylily: SMOKY WITCH (Megan Skinner, 2019) is a tall (39" in full sun, 49" in deep shade) smoky-mauve 6" dip with long burgundy chevron eyes and intense green throat. CMO to 56F, which is useful in EM here in Pennsylvania. Its pre-midseason start, BC 22 (BR4), and rebloom, keeps it going much of the season. This (Grey Witch X Smoke Scream) seedling won the Dan Tau seedling award at Region 3's 2019 meeting. arrow down
