Bernie, Thanks for the inspiration. Seeing the great success you enjoy urges me on to commit the time and energy to follow suit. My own daylilies will arrive soon and I will post a thread asking advice on planting.

I am in the proscess of growing mine in pots and making the waterbeds as described by Twiggybuds
I have way too many trees whose roots extend way out in my present beds and soak up all the water and nutrients.
I wonder how white plastic table cloths would work drapped in front of the pots to keep the sun from heating up the pots

Why don't you mulch all round the pots which will keep the pots cool but allow sun to get to the plant!! Bit like clematis feet in cool, top in sun...

Charlie, anything to shade the sidewalls will do. The sun might ruin the tablecloths in one season.

Here's another option just recently discovered. I found a man to help me with some general labor so I set him to digging out some new beds. The ground was almost level to start with and he had plenty of examples. I had a docs appt and left him to it for most of the day. Came back and it looked like the start of a cemetery. I'm telling you they are deep enough to hide 2 gallon pots. My first thought was to go ballistic but just in time I thought why not just put a couple holes in the plastic to take care of the water depth. The deep sides take care of the shade. They'll be back at ground level which is more normal looking.

Edited to add that this year I'm trying this method for tomatoes.
