Mike, maybe Buddy Hudson bloomed once before you got it, and now it's reblooming for you. Did you get it from somewhere down south where their midseason is much earlier than ours?

I really like that Heavenly Angel Ice and have been wanting to add it to my collection.

Oh, those are pretty Mike! You got some good ones. I'm especially fond of that ZUNI THUNDERBIRD.

I was looking through the listings of Margo Reed and Jim Murphy tonight ( http://www.woodhengegardens.com ). I got several plants from them earlier in the season, and they're all doing well. I want more late blooming one, and tall, too. I have picked out about $400 worth so far. LOL! Cannot spend that much, so will be paring down the list before ordering. The ones I got before are as follows:

CANDY CANE DREAMS
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER
RUNNING LATE
CHERRY CREAM PIE
LUNA

I think giving them more water can help them rebloom, and maybe fertilizer. Having a longer bloom season helps, too. Down south they get a lot more. I can't be watering all the ones I have, nor do I have the time or money to fertilize that many. I must have good, fertile soil, though, as people are always amazed at how well my daylilies bloom, even during long, hot, dry spells. I already have too much to water as it is with all the potted ones I have for sale, plus my planters of annuals. Cannot water all the gardens I have, not with a well, as I can't take the chance of the well going dry when water is in short supply. I remember it happening a long time ago when I was a kid. Sure don't want to go through that again.

I have to get out there this weekend and see if I have any rebloom scapes coming up. I usually get some, but not many.

Mike you are lucky...or just a better gardener than me. I don't have ANY reblooms and all of mine are done for the season I believe, unless something magical happens.

I blame it on the weather and not enough water. Next year will be different...I promise!

Linda, it's my turn to be lucky. The drought was indeed a big factor. Bear in mind that I am continually trying to acquire known consistent rebloomers and so call everbloomers. On and On, Rosy Returns, Apricot Sparkles and Going Bananas are doing great this year. I expect better performance from some of this season's new plants.

I shouldn't leave out Big Snowbird and Boundless Beauty. I started with two single fans of BB which I planted separate spring of 2011. Both has increased and put out one rebloom scape each. The plan is to relocate one of the plants this fall to a preffered location.

Cindy I know you had it before and it didnt survive. Hope you have better luck this time.
I got a small single fan of Lavender Blue Baby last summer. I didn't expect any blooms this season. It now has one scape and one additional fan. Stella's Sparky have an instant rebloom on top of the rebloom scape on the same fan. Three quarters of an inch of rain yesterday surely wont hurt either. grin!

Great, Mike! Can't believe you still have stuff blooming, but then you're a zone colder than I am, so your season would start and end later than mine. The only ones I have blooming now are AUTUMN MINARET, AUTUMN KING and CHALLENGER. Oh, and I have a rebloom scape with several buds on SUNDAYS WITH VERNON.

I have been wanting that HEAVENLY ANGEL ICE for awhile now. Really nice.

Look Here Mary, rebloom flowers are much bigger than the initial ones.
These prolifs are going in the ground.
Stella's Sparky, instant rebloom on top of the rebloom. Not bad for a second year plant. Just added Stella's Pink Pretty, which is coming this weekend. Full sib to Stella's Ruffled Fingers and Stella's Sparky.

Nice, Mike! Great looking prolifs. Good on that STELLA'S SPARKY. Do you have STELLA'S RUFFLED FINGERS? Mine put out instant rebloom scapes on all the fans that had initial bloom scapes. Just one set of rebloom scapes, but that was great. It's the only one I have that reblooms like that. I'm slowly trying to add more that do that here in the north.

Your Autumn King is doing so much better than mine. I'm going to have to move mine and see if it does better in a different location. Do you have AUTUMN MINARETt? That one is such a prolific bloomer for me, and I think it's still going out there. Another great late one is GOOD-BYE COLUMBUS. It's registered as a ML, but mine blooms well into the late season. That one's still going, too. AUTUMN MINARET is one of its parents, which, btw, is also registered as a ML, but really extends the blooming season. AM is fertile, but GC is not. Too bad.

Mike, SRF is a heavy increaser for me, so it should do well for you next year. You'll love it!

That GENESTA has very similar looks to SRF, and I'm wondering if that one is in its background. I like that one, and I see it's a late one. Need more lates. I know, I keep saying that.

The only rebloom scape I have found out there now is on SUNDAYS WITH VERNON. It was blooming today. What a gorgeous thing, especially when very little else is in bloom.

Wow - all these blooms are so beautiful! I TRIED really hard to pick out some rebloomers when I was adding DLs back earlier in the year. I sure hope once they get established that they rebloom. I love some of those that you refer to as everbloomers. I don't believe I have ever seen that term before ... need to start watching for them as well.

My top performer in terms of days is On And ON, Apricot Sparkles, Rosy Returns and Blackeyed Stella. My Going Bananas was moved last fall but still did ok. Just got Stella Ruffled Fingers as a bonus along with Raspberry Delight Cupcake with my Stella's Pink Pretty purchase. Let's see what happen in the next couple years.

I was admiring ya'lls Rosy Returns yesterday when I was catching up on the thread, and then a few minutes later a friend posted that she had extras if any of us were interested to bring to a Roundup we are having next weekend. I JUMPED on it! :) So, hopefully I will have it next year to bloom and bloom for me...we will see. I did order the Blackeyed Stella this summer, but it hasn't bloomed. Didn't get planted until late june so I didn't really expect it to. I have had a few of the new ones bloom, but i didn't really expect it.

By the way, I have one or two DLs that I think are finally large enough to share that I am going to try to dig a few fans to take to the RU. Can ya'll tell me suggestions on how to do this? Do you dig up the entire plant and divide it? or do you just dig into the side of it or what? I have heard of people getting crown rot from injuring the crown and I am not sure what that means and how to avoid it. Would sure appreciate some tips if you have any. Wish I had a bunch more that I could share and maybe I could work out some swaps with ya'll. But mine really aren't big enough to do much yet. Probably wouldn't be worth the postage it would take for a swap... :( Maybe someday they will increase and I can do some swapping...

Thanks so much for all the inspiration from the beautiful pics, the enabling on the addiction, and the great advice! :-)

I really like FREEWHEELIN.

I love the brug!!!! How do you get so many blooms on it? I had one with 6 blooms on it this year, and was thrilled with it. My other one is budding now, finally. I hope it will bloom before frost. I was starting to wonder if it was even going to bloom at all this year.

Genna, what I do when I'm dividing daylilies to trade or sell, I dig into the side of the clump and pull as many fans out as I need. If I have too much trouble getting the fans out, then I take a sharp knife and cut them away from the clump, taking care to try not to damage the crown. It's a lot less stress on the clump that's being divided.

I don't mean to be ignorant... but I dug these clumps completely up today as suggested by Mike, but I really don't understand what is considered the crown... or does each fan have a crown?? sorry... just trying to clarify and make sure I understand!

Edited to ask: While I am asking questions... can you tell me if you divide your DLs that have gone dormant?? I have one that bloomed like crazy last year, and i only got a few blooms this year so I decided it must be too crowded, but when I went to divide it almost all the foliage was gone. I divided it anyway, but I wasn't sure if I was supposed to have done so... :(

Thanks!!

Genna, you don't learn if you don't ask questions, so please don't hesitate. Each fan has a crown. It's where the roots go down out of and wear the foliage grows up out of.

That's fine to divide it now. It's not going into full winter dormancy yet. At the end of the summer I've noticed that old foliage dies back and new foliage comes up. If the old foliage pulls off easily, then I pull it off just to tidy up the beds. If it doesn't come off easily I just take scissors and cut the foliage back. I leave about maybe 8"-10" of foliage on the plants. They always grow more, and the gardens look nice and neat.

Karen that BRUG was given to me several years ago by a friend of a friend that was moving out of state. I also got many Plumeria. I gave away all but four. I expect them to bloom next year. Found a couple more rebloom scapes. Inimitable (pictured) and Francis Of Assissi. Lavender Blue Baby - ffo. Took thispic early in the morning before work. Stella's Sparky with two faciated scapes. Endless Heart.

I've had my 2 brugs for about 2 1/2 years now. I got them from a friend who could no longer keep them. She had originally given me 4. I gave one to a friend, and lost one this year. A pink one bloomed last year and a golden yellow one bloomed this year. The pink one has buds now. Hoping to see it bloom before frost.

Yes, I've been feeding my brugs. One did get a head start indoors. The other one was kept in a dormant state for the winter in my cellar. I guess that's why it's still late. Brought it out after the danger of frost was past. The one that bloomed was the one that had been in my enclosed porch all winter. It had a bad case of spider mites early on in the season, but I got rid of them with horticultural oil.

I can totally relate to the back not liking me working in the garden!! I spent weekend before last working trying to pull weeds and grass out of a bed again ... spent about 6 hrs out there and it took three trips to the chiropractor to get me to stop hurting :( ... I did work some the following weekend but didn't push it as hard and did a lot better! If I didn't work full time I might get a lot more weeding done, but then I couldn't afford any plants or fertilizer.. :-)

Genna, do you kneel down when you weed or bend over? I always bend over. Causes too much back and knee pain for me to kneel, espeically to my upper back. Of course, if I haven't been weeding in a long time, then the backs of my legs are killing me for a couple of days from streching out those muscles there.

I have the same problem as you. I work full time, actually over 60 hrs a week, and don't have enough time to keep my gardens looking great. But then if I didn't I wouldn't have money for plants, etc., either. Oh well, what do you do?

I kneel sometimes and just bend sometimes. I was using a tine type 'hoe' for lack of knowing what it is actually called... maybe a potato hoe?, anyway, and was digging with it and pulling by hand. I made my legs sore for sure, but I pulled so much that I made all the way across my shoulders really stiff and sore. Couldn't get the tension to slack up before I went to bed so went to bed all tight and stiff - then work up with my neck pulled out of place from the tension! It is finally some better now!

So, last weekend, I tried to be a little more conscious of the technique I was using and tried to keep the muscles stretched and loosened as much as possible. Of course, if I did that every day I would be in a lot better shape...

I sometimes get a condition from pulling weeds that causes inflamation of the cartilage around the breastbone. It has a name but I know I probably would misspell it. It is very painful and it hurts like heck to take a deep breath. The only cure is ibuprofen and ice packs. Takes a couple of days to feel better. My lower back gives me all kinds of trouble. I can't work in the garden more than an hour at a time so I work in shifts. Most of the time I will only work at pulling weeds 2 to 3 times a week. It really needs to be done more often but my back won't allow me to.

Yes, the first one you mentioned. It is very painful and I seem to be prone to it since I had radiation for breast cancer back in 2005. So, I have to do a little bit of weeding at a time or it flares up.

Kwanjin, I hate that, too. If we were younger we would not be having all these problems.

Genna, I have those problems with my neck, too, when I've done a lot of weed pulling/bending over. And I wake up all stiff there in the morning, like you. I have an appointment to see a chiro on Monday. Maybe they can help. I do have a lot of neck and shoulder problems.

I have not heard of Costochondritis. Sounds like something I don't want.

I have Meralgia paresthetica, a.k.a. tingling leg syndrome. It's from being so overweight and all the bending over I do in the garden. There's a nerve that goes through the hip, and when you really overweight like I am, and you bend over a lot, the nerve gets pinched and damaged. It can cause the outer side of your thigh to go numb, and can also have a burning pain. It acts up when I stand in place for more than 15 minutes at a time, like browsing in a store, etc. Also bothersome sometimes when I'm walking, like with the burning pain. In the winter it doesn't affect me much, cause I'm not doing all that bending down. A lot of young women who wear jeans that are too tight can get that condition, and it can be caused by some trauma to the area or diabetes as well. If I lost the weight I would probably have a lot fewer problems with it.

Well, ya'll can label me officially crazy i guess... I have multiple beds that are overrun with bermuda and need to be gutted and redone and what do i do??? Go to a local roundup/plant swap get together and come home with boxes of more plants! I was so excited about all the things I got - then came home and looked at my beds and KNOW that I am crazy for bringing anything else home! :( I got about 10 DLs, some salvias, some elephant ears, penstemoms, and several other nice starts of things... but what on earth was I thinking????


I have had two prior surgeries on my low back - ruptured disk - surgery in the same location both times. It still gives me fits some days, but I know that my neck and shoulder problems as well as probably the back stems from a wreck I was in with my parents when I was 13... rearended twice !! Had severe whiplash - in fact my neck was curved the wrong way when I FINALLY went to a chiropractor about it 6 years later... so although it is much better over the many, many years...I have to go on a fairly regular basis for adjustments - particularly when I decide to try to do a months' work of work in a couple of days! :(

Working hard in the yard today trying to figure out what to do with all these goodies I brought home... better get back at it!

Maybe the beds can be rototilled and then just rake the grass out. Or you can roundup them but you wouldn't be able to plant next year.

I do have fun planting! BUT I DON'T have fun weeding ! :( Oh well, I got a lot of stuff repotted into holding pots until I can get some places cleaned up. Put some items in the bed that I have managed to get partially cleaned back out. Potted up 10 more DLs that I HOPE to get in the ground soon, but beds have to be dealt with first!

I made a nursery run before our plant swap and bought two maple trees. I did manage to get one of those planted today - hopefully will get the other one planted tomorrow. My husband had rotor cuff surgery 5 weeks ago he can't help with the trees except to supervise! :)

I got some good plants at the RU - but mostly I go just to meet up with some of my great DG friends, visit, swap plants and eat! Always come home with the vehicle stuffed and my belly too! There were several at this one that I haven't seen in over 2 yrs so it was really nice. Nothing like great gardening friends... (they are all as crazy as me!)

Hope everyone had a great day!

Clump Blackeyed Stella and double Buddy Hudson.
Freewheelin, not liking this chill.
Stella's Sparky two of three fasciated scapes are blooming. According to the AHS(http://www.daylilies.org/ahs_dictionary/fasciation.html), a plant that had a f/scape will not do so the next season. With three on this one it shouldn't do so the next three seasons. LOL!!
Lavender Blue Baby - waited until this evening for it to open to take pic.
Blackeyed Stella - the other plant.

Genna, I actually don't mind weeding. I find it relaxing for the most part, except when it's 90 and muggy. Yuck! Today and yesterday were great. Yesterday I got a lot of weeding done, and I pruned a climbing rose and got it trained, as it had gotten way out of control. It should look really nice next year. Today I got some mulching/fertilizing done, and I also moved around some daylilies. I moved some daylilies around, and finally finished a purple and yellow bed. I had started turning that one into a purple/yellow bed a couple of years ago. Today I dug up the rest of the daylilies that were not those colors and replaced with ones that were, switching things around. Also dug up some daylilies I'm getting rid of to pot up and sell. Oh, and dug up some shasta daisies from a clump that was getting too big. Those will be potted up to sell, also. Or I might find someone to just give them too. Anyone want some shasta daisies?

I did not make it to a Round Up this year. Had one scheduled at my house in July for peak daylily bloom, but the people who said they could come could not make it after all. Would love to do it next year. I really enjoy them.

Nice blooms, Mike. At least you have some still going. I have pretty much nothing blooming now. Found a few prolifs. 3 were on a NOID plant that is a dark purple with creped texture, really nice one. Will cut them off and plant when they develop roots. Can't remember now which plant the other 2 were on, but they had decent roots on them already I cut them off and planted next to the parent clump. I have one bud left on a rebloom scape on SUNDAYS WITH VERNON.

Speaking of prolif. I found one on Lavender Blue Baby. When this one is finished blooming I will put it in water and pot up and bring inside along with a few others. They will go by a south facing window. Better survival chance there IMHO. Picked up a oldie that I always wanted at a local nursery along with "Tomato Soup" cone flower. Oldie = Gentle Shepard.

GENTLE SHEPARD is a good one. I almost got PARDON ME recently, as it was in bloom and looked so nice. I think I had that one some time back and didn't care for it too much, but I have recently grown fond of it. I have quite a few seedlings from that one that my late mother grew.

Unfortunately I don't have room in the house for daylily prolifs. I already have too many tropicals to overwinter.

Just wanted to let ya'll know what enablers ya'll have been for me these past few months! I only had about 10 daylilies this Spring... i have had a few more in the past but lost some last year in the drought when I sick and just couldn't keep the ones in the farthest beds watered. Well, I counted last night and I have 50 !!! pots on DLs on my front porch (shaking my head in disbelief). I was shocked! I knew that i purchased several from the farm going out of business, and I purchased some from Judy selling on the classifieds, got just a few from my plant swap last weekend, but I didn't realize how much I had multiplied my DL holdings!!! PLUS, I have put several new DLs in the ground this year! Probably at least 20 more! And I won't EVEN mention how long my want list is... oh my... I guess you could say you have been a positive influence! :-) (Not sure my husband would agree with that statement though...)

I have a fairly large porch, and my pots are kinda lined up across the front of two large bay windows - I had NO idea there were that many until I counted the other night! I just hope my husband doesn't stop and count... :) I sure hope to get most of them in the ground because I am a little nervous about trying to overwinter them in pots! I have decided that the ones that don't get in the ground will be moved down off my porch and onto the ground at the south end of the porch up next to the foundation of the house. Hopefully, that will give them a little protection from the North wind, and they will still get morning sun there and hopefully some radiant warmth from the brick wall...

If my husband asks...I am blaming it on ya'll beautiful photos~! just so you know...

I have not figured out how many I have bought this year, as well as all the bonuses I got. And I'm just now placing an order with Bob Selman at Blueridge Daylilies in NC, as I got an email from him letting me know he has a lot listed on sale in his eBay store. The ones he has there are pretty much all $9.99. Here's what I'm getting:

SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE
ELECTRIC MIST
RASPBERRY WINTER
PARTY PINAFORE
SPACECOAST TINY PERFECTION
SPACECOAST STARBURST

I know he'll send a lot of bonuses, too.

The color is NOT gold, but more of a creme / off-white. It has a definite stripe of white running though the middle of each main three petals. The leaves are 16" and the scape is 23".

Granted it doesn't happen every year.This area is considered on the shores of lake Erie.We do not have to drive far to get there so we have wind chills and humidity from the lake.I take a chance every year and plant till mid october . I figure the milorganite in the planting hole helps keep the roots warm longer. I only ordered 3 plants from Bob Selman, Egyptian Queen, Strider Spider, and Spacecoast Spice Girl.I was afraid to order a lot, just in case. His plants are great! When do your hard freezes set in?Ours can vary from late october to mid november. Karen

I think I was a gift from Bob S year ago, because I have all the others pretty well marked.

I think it was marked Look Here Mary, but it is clearly not. The blooms on that are much bigger and folder

Well, I went and looked at all the ones he had on sale - and there are lots I would love to have, but I opted not to purchase ANY more until i can get all these I have potted in the ground! Plus, I just bought several that came in last week ... have to spread my purchases out some and I have some compost and manure that I want to buy to improve another section of my foundation planting.

Oh well, I was quite proud of myself for not ordering anything!!! :-)

Karen, we can get a hard freeze in mid Nov, I suppose, but we don't really get a freeze till more like late Nov, early Dec. Sometimes not till late Dec. I have hear we are now zone 7 on the revised zone map, but I don't see how that's likely for us, either. I will still plant like we're zone 6. Not taking any chances. Costs too much to spend money on plants I might lose.

Wish I could have held off on ordering. Oh well. Gonna have lots of planting to do. :-P

Looks like I will have a Rebloom on AARON's LITTLE WHOPPER after all.

I was afraid it wouldn't bloom before we get a frost. (Usually the last week of October), but LOOKIE!!

Woohoo! Looking good! I'm sure that will be open by tomorrow.

My last bud on the rebloom scape of SUNDAYS WITH VERNON was open today. I got a pic, but can't upload to my computer, as my card reader is broken. Hopefully I can get a new one tomorrow. That's the last daylily of the season for me this year. Such a shame, but everything bloomed 2 weeks early this year due to the freakishly warm weather in spring. Maybe next year will be more normal, so we can enjoy more bloom later in the season.

Karen {nutsfordaylily}, did you get your order from Bob Selman? I got mine friday. He sent beautiful plants as always. I ordered 3 plants and he sent 4 gift plants. They are in the ground and we are going to get frost tonight. I think I will put some leaves around them since I just got them in. By the way, I have enjoyed seeing all your flowers.They are beautiful. Karen

Good evening everybody, it is still fairly warm here and has been raining for three days. I had a few daylilies open in the past few days, because of all the rain they are very happy right now!
I also got a good size order from Bob Selman, I purchased eleven from him on eBay and he sent seven bonus plants. Very good size plants. You would have to look really hard to find plants that size for his price.

some october blooms. :) Bella Sera, Song Writer, Condilla.

Very nice blooms, virginiarose. I have not gotten my order from Bob yet, nor heard from him. Will have to email him and as what's up. My season is shorter than yours, I'm guessing. I would think his customers further north would be first priority, unless it's first come, first served.

Thank you Karen, Bob must be a very busy man, I have a few on my watch list and as far as I know he is still shipping. I noticed that sellers in the higher zones ship later. He is in NC same zone as me probably and fall is just now arriving.

Susan, very pretty pictures. I really like your Bella Sera . You sure got a nice order from Bob Selman. He sent me huge plants too, but then he always does. It is just like christmas when you are opening his box. His plants do so well too. your plants will have more time to get established if fall is just starting for you. We have already had two frosts this past few days. I had to pull a couple zinnias yesterday that were touched by frost And this was after planting my order from him last wednesday I am thinking of mulching the new ones now rather than waiting for the ground to freeze Karen.

Daylilies can be 'heeled in' very successfully if there's no time to plant in fall. I've never done it, but read about it.

I sent Bob an email last night. Have not heard back from him yet.

If you like that Christmas feeling, don't forget to try Maryott's! Wow, he sent me two of his introductions for free, and they were listed for 100.00 each. Also if you add to your order over the summer you get to take advantages of the special bonuses. Like Rachelle Agin which was listed for 90.00, Bluegrass memories listed for 40.00 and Artistically Engraved also listed for 100.00, got all these for free. Plus he has BOGO's which I also took advantage of, so all together I got 25 bonus plants if you count the BOGO's the second plant is a bonus, right? WhooHoo!

I have another bloom on AARON'S LITTLE WHOPPER. I can't get Tinkers web site to show up, so can't pull a picture from it.

However, AHS has a pic and it shows a really rounded bloom with curved back petals. I thought perhaps mine just wouldn't open up all the way, but in looking at the one on AHS, maybe mine is open all the way. I don't know!

At least you have color in October!! I know it must be fun just to have DLs blooming this late!

Now the anticipation Karen, waiting on that package to come in the mail. I looked again yesterday at his listings... there are a few I would really like to have, especially since he said they were giving lots of bonuses trying to make room for the new season... but with 50 pots on the front porch, I am just not sure it is a good idea. :( MAYBE if I make a lot of progress this weekend, I might can order some at the first of the week! :-) Talk about motivation...

Karen, make sure you mulch Skinwalker. The first time I purchased it I lost it to winter kill. Thought I would try again so I purchased it again and mulched it heavily and it was fine. Now that I have a small clump of it I don't bother mulching it any more.

That fleece flower is interesting - haven't seen that before! I also like that Lemon Queen Heliantus. Can't believe you have so many scrapes this time of year! Is this normal?? or is it just the strange year we have had??

I had originally planned to put most of mine that are supposed to rebloom down on the end of my foundation bed I am working on because I come in that way every day and wanted to get the most enjoyment out of them... but i am not sure how many rebloomers I ended up with there. I became so overwhelmed by trying to get the heights and colors coordinated that the reblooming issue fell by the wayside. :( It all becomes overwhelming to me when I start trying to select DLs or plant them!!

Thanks I did look it up and I heard it is invasive even in zone 6, so might want to leave it alone. Sure is pretty and I do like the idea of providing for the birds. :)
