Leawood, KS(Zone 5b)

I've been watching the posts from the warmer zones and eagerly waiting for the daylilies to begin in my garden. Well, we're close...

Yes, they are. I noticed my Purple Prince Lily Tree bulbs just today coming up thru the surface. Heres a photo of the big ditchlily plant from Happ and in the background is the Red Daylily from Pepper. It looks like they each have about 15 flowers coming on.

Since I have more shade mine will be later but my Asiatics and Orientals are starting to bloom. I have 3 so far blooming. Mambo, Blackout and a yellow.

Hey you really did get the red lily!! LOL!! I remember that we weren't 100% sure that that's what it was with everything that was going on but glad it is!!

I love the red daylily - I have a couple reds, but nothing close to blooming this early.

My second daylily variety to open - I am terrible about keeping the names of varieties I buy so this could be any one of a number of varieties I've added in the last 5 years. Every time I buy a new variety, I find I'm drawn towards the deep yellow colors.

A miniature variety also opened this morning. I believe this was one in a collection of dwarf varieties given me last fall by a DG'er from Nebraska.

My daylilies are starting to bloom. I was taking pics of the hostas and didn't even notice the daylily blooming at first.

I have new pics of mine. Need to download them. They are finally starting their full glory.

Those are some pretty pics of Daylilies up there. I hope my Purple Prince Lily Tree flowers are as nice. I think any day now, they might have a few flowers, not bad for the first year I guess!
I hope they don't mind being in about 3 inches of soil for now in they're pots! I got a place all picked out for them, hopefully I'll get them planted there soon.

I have a similar red variety, Pepper - do you by any chance know the name? I bought mine from Lennington Gardens (off Gregory, in Raytown) several years ago.

It's a great variety with lots of blooms. Unfortunately, I'm terrible about keeping things labeled.

I got mine from Powell Gardens a few years ago when they were thinning out their daylily beds. That whole bed is full of named ones but I don't have labels and don't remember the name.

Pink one

Thank goodness! I'm not the only gardener who doesn't hang a tag on everything they plant! I used to put galvanized tin tags on things, but I couldn't find a marker that would last more than a few months and I kept tripping over the wires when I got into the beds to pull weeds so I tossed all of them. Here's a white variety that I love.

I have a white one that I think is called Sunday Morning. One of my favs. For some reason I've always remembered that name. lol

This red variety has just started blooming. I love the bright yellow/chartreuse throat.

You guys have some nice Daylilies, hopefully I can add a Brecks Purple Prince Lily Tree to the photos soon! Here it is today, getting more purple, but still closed up.
There is 3 Lily Trees in the photo, only one is turning noticeably purple.

They are alll so beautiful. I love the red ones. I had an idea to put tall purple daylilies in a border but not sure what kind. Any recommendations?

Hi rose, I can only suggest one purple one, like mine, a Purple Prince Lily Tree. Mine is maybe halfway open and not as purple yet as I'd hoped, maybe it'll get more purple yet. I was thinking maybe Brecks had accidently sent me a different one, but I think that is the right one, just maybe premature yet. I got the 3 bulbs, (with shipping) for $2.94 with a "FREE" $25 coupon from them. Actually, they sent me and my housemate coupons at different times and said I could use them both at this address. In the Fall I have 3 different Lily Trees from them coming for $2.94 total. The 3 bulbs alone are $19.99 usually.
Brecks has a few Lily Trees, they have put down the claim on hybidizing them or something.- http://brecks.com/category.asp_Q_c_E_128_A_l_E_2_A_g_E_1
Lily Trees flowers are big, they say 8", I believe it, mine are big too. If its straight and tall that you want, these might work.

Shortleaf, I'll check out Brecks. I have ordered from them before. I have lilies all over the place - daylilies and the other kinds. I mixed them up everywhere and they look beautiful but now I'm thinking a border along the garage of just one kind might stand out more. The only problem is I might start out with one species and then I can't help by adding this or that. That's how I ended up with my crazy garden.
