More nice ones. I really like MAPPING CAROLINA, SKINWALKER and UFORISTIC GALAXY. All are on my wish list. I have over 1,000 on the wish list. I would never be able to get them all, nor take care of that many gardens. I already have over 1,000 varieties, and I can't keep up with maintaining the gardens I have, let alone more. I continue buying more daylilies, but I do get rid of ones I no longer am exited with. It's a disease.

Nice ones, Cindy! Love the color on your SMOKY MOUNTAIN AUTUMN. Mine has never looked quite like that. I had PINK PEPPERMINT, but this year I don't know what happened to it. The one that's blooming in its place is a single one. Odd. I also have TECHNY PEACH LACE. Mine is just about to start blooming.

Hemlady, you're right, but yours shows more pink tones, unless your camera is just recording the colors differently than mine. That 4th shot I believe was taken in the late evening. I take many of my pics then. With some daylilies it works out really well, and they even look better then. With others, especially after a hot day, it's not so good, and they seem to 'melt'. Morning shows more intense coloring.

85 is much better than 102. I think we actually hit 100 back about a month or so ago. Or maybe it was more like 2 wks ago. Can't remember now. I know we had some freaky record highs back in the spring.

Could be because it's a semievergreen, and I believe it was hybridized in Florida. Salter is the hybridizer. Some of the southern bred cultivars, while hardy in the north, are very slow to increase. I've had another Salter daylily for probably 5 years now, and while it does live through the winter, and it's a beautiful thing, I still only have 2 fans of it. Should have probably purchased 6 fans or so. It's called LIGHTER THAN AIR. Here's a few pics of it, showing it in 2 different lights on 2 different days. First two are just 2 different views at the same time of day, same day.

Oh I have heard of that one. It is very pretty!!! I think some semi-evergreens are really evergreens. There was a discussion on here several years ago how there really is no such thing as a semi-evergreen and that a lot of southern hybridizers will list them as such to get northern sales when in fact they are really evergreens.

I know we have discussed the daylily named "Edith" and the comments have been helpful. I should have 3 different names but one is completely gone (Edith Ann), another one fan(Edith Sliger) , and lastly I can't find the tag for Edith Haywood.or Edith Scholar. A friend is trying to find her cousins name(Edith) to give as a gift for a complicated cancer surgery. If anyone has the above plants or can give me a source to purchase them, I would greatly appreciate it.

I need a few others:Bucky or Royce, , Lucy/Lucille, Deborah/Debra

Hermosas flores means beautiful flowers. I was referring to your beauties!!! I had a little of everything I could get ahold of. maybe one acres worth??? Daylily's were my favorites. I am just now starting all over with flowers beds here in town. I lost everything when I fell ill. Had to move to town to be closer to medical facilities. Had to leave everything behind, couldn't keep up with driving back and forth to care for all my flower beds. Totally recovered now and starting over. Will pinch pennies but I will have my beauties again.

So sorry to hear you were ill... having to leave all your flowers must have been difficult. Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing...and the spanish lesson! :)

I got a box of new babies in the mail yesterday...and expecting a smaller box with the remainder of the order today! Beautiful plants and I can't wait to find a new permanent home for them - but for now they will go in pots until I can get some of my beds under control. I have decided that I am completely gutting one bed and starting over. most of the new babies will go in there! Was able to get Buttered Popcorn which has been on my want list since last Fall when I saw ya'll posting pics of it reblooming, and then also Midas Magic that has been on my list too. Then i got several that were not on my list, but I thought they were pretty too! ^_^ Several are supposed to be rebloomers and later bloomers so that should help extend my bloom season!! Excited!!

Nice, KsMirasol, and welcome! I love that beautiful yellow daylily. Which one is it? Sorry you were sick and lost all your flowers. That's too bad. I'm glad your better now and can start over. A new adventure.

I have over an acre of gardens. It's way too much for me to take care of. I might be able to get a handle on it if I was retired and had lots more time to work on them. And I just keep adding more! I'm nuts, I know. So are we all.

Thanks. Karen that yellow one was my very first daylily. The tag said it was Big Bird, and it was huge and beautiful this picture does it no justice. I am going out this weekend to see if I can salvage anything. My Husband said he saw a little green in my daylilies but not much .Hoping this one is a survivor. We had a very dry and hot summer. this one is the only one I remember the name of. I had lot's but none as beautiful as the ones on this thread they put mine to shame. I never kept track of name just tossed labels. Not anymore, from now on I will keep track which are which.

KsMirasol . The Kansan Sunflower Yeah that's me!!! LOL

Daylilies are very resilient so hopefully you will be able to salvage several of them. The drought may have caused you to lose some though... good luck in recovering some of them and in getting started with all new gardens!!

I had gotten BIG BIRD one year, but I lost it. It's a really nice one. I hope you're able to get some of your daylilies rescued. I'm sure you'll probably be able to get quite a few.

Those are some nice pics. Just guessing, but I'd say that first one is PANDORA'S BOX, the second possibly STRAWBERRY CANDY, the third something with ICE in it (brain lock), the fourth looks like a Munson one, and the fifth maybe APRICOT SPARKLES.

#2 could also possibly be Pink Cotton Candy/my pic of it #1, maybe one of the Candy daylilies??

Cindy, you may be right about PINK COTTON CANDY. I have that one too, and that does look more like it than STRAWBERRY CANDY. It could also be SWEET SUGAR CANDY, which I also have, and personally I feel that it looks pretty identical to PINK COTTON CANDY. Here's a pic of SSC in the first one and PCC in the second one. And when I've looked it up online I see no difference in other people's pics, either.

Pandora's box yes that does sound familiar and so does the Candy just don't know which one.
I can only hope to remember names and actually keep track of any daylilies i may have in the future.. I don't know how you all do it. So many daylilies and you know them all by name!!! I am totally in awe of you all.

I don't know how I do it, either, as I forget so many other things. People are always in awe of how I can remember the names of my daylilies, most of the time without even looking at the tags. I can usually remember exactly where each one is, too. I do have tags on all of mine, though, and if I loose tags to new ones, then I might not remember which one it was.

They sure do look alike Karen. Sweet Sugar Candy looks like it may be a bit darker in color from your pic of it.

Well, that pic of SSC was taken either in the evening, on an overcast day, or in the shade. Not sure which. The one of PCC was taken in full sun.
