I finally have a big garden to grow daylilies in and I'm expanding my collection. I have a desire for daylilies with certain qualities and thought I'd solicit suggestions from fellow enthusiasts.
The important criteria are:
Dormant or Semi-E (I'm in Zone 5a)
Pink, Lavender or Near white
Rebloomers a plus
Ruffles delightful but not required.
Eyezones fun but not required.
Robust, healthy, easy cultivar (remember, I'm a beginner)
"medium" size (i.e. 24-26 inches with 4-6 in. blooms)
Tet or Diploid
I already have:
I know I can use the search engine, but it is more fun to hear from real people. I'm hitting up the Hem sale at Olbrich gardens in Madison this Saturday, and it would be nice to have a few names in mind, before I go mad with my checkbook.
Humph!! computer didn't take my info last night
From the list..you might want to check Gods' Handiwork and Brocaded Gown. They do well for me.
I also have Big Kiss and Cat Dancer..as well as the lovely Twilight Swan.
For coral..Smoky Mountain Autumn is great.
One I don't grow, but gets good marks for pink is Barbara Mitchell.
I have Pink Lavender Appeal in my garden..somewhere..moving has made a mess of tags and not everything bloomed this season. PLA is a prolific bloomer and fan setter. It is not listed in the sale.
