First blooms of a new bareroot daylily I planted this spring -- Bubbly. Specs state a 20" scape and 2.87" blooms.

Mine came in at 17" scape and 2" petite blooms...very pretty. First picture is in the early morning light and the second is this evening's shade.

Rherma, we are happy for you. Patience is the name of the game. You will look back at this after you have accumulated hundreds and LAUGH. I have a few years in this DL "thingy". I can see mine coming along. LOL!

Patience is key. I've been going out every morning and evening to see if anything has bloomed...haha. I checked this a.m. and I have another one blooming, "Eagles on High" which was a gift plant with one of my recent orders. I'll post a picture of that one tonight.

Nice! It is to be expected that the height and diameter of the bloom will be smaller than what it's registered at, as it's still settling in. Should be correct height and diameter next year. Then it the third year it will really shine!
