Laura good for you. I got a few late fall, some I planted already and three for now (LOL!) that's coming next spring. Planted in Oct. Santa's Little Helper, Last Snowflake, Violet Becomes You and gift Insider Trading. These were all huge plants that came from Alron on the LA that Casshigh recommended. Coming next spring, Sky King, One Above You and Spacecoast Eye For Passion.
Laura, we have MACH ONE coming in the spring from Leslie. I have wanted this one every time I see a picture of it. We have a bunch more coming in the spring again! Still planting here and acquiring daylilies from late fall sales that were too good to pass up. Just got 40 something from Tim Bell that were mostly $5 each that he sold at a local festival/craft fair. Got to quit this but that's not going to happen. Got to feed this addiction!
Ive got one plant coming from Fred and one from the Lambertsons.
A Manx replacement, and thats it. Ive got lots of seedlings that should be my new blooms. I just cant take care of everything by myself anymore. Id rather have fewer that live and bloom because they have had care, than a ton that die from neglect, but were fun to buy.
I really had everything looking good, and now its SO dry here, I just cant give them the water and care thats going to make the spring blooms I want. Im hand watering my favorites and we shall see about the rest. When the ground gets this dry, and we're just sand, even the sprinkler doesnt do much good unless you run it 24/7
My new rule, at least till after Christmas ;-o is, If I havent seen it bloom in person, no buying. I wannna see the color, I wanna see the
height , I wanna see if the scape holds up the flower, I wanna see if two petals open perfectly and one curls ( I really hate that), and I wanna see the foliage.
What I cant wait for is to see all of your guys pictures. My word, Doris has been one busy planter. Im sure your rewards will be huge.
It's hot here when it's peak bloom, too, even though I'm in the north. Gardenglory, if you checkout the clump shots thread and one for twins and triplets shots, then you can see quite a few pics there. A good way to satisfy your craving for pics until they start blooming again.
