Okay, I took the plunge and lost myself to the half off sale at Iowa Daylilies. I think I need to cull out a couple of plants and need some advise. I got almost all rebloomers (except for Wedding Band which is a cream with a yellow edge that I couldn't resist).

My question has to do with the probablilty of reblooming when the description says mid to late season rebloomer. I live in Atlanta, GA. Do you think they have a chance of reblooming?

Thanks!

I definitely had rebloomers up until frost here in Iowa. I don't know what happens in Southern gardens.

I'm trying the late rebloomers, because my daylilies seem to poop out in the heat of the summer. Even Stella! The only one that didn't this summer was Purple d'Oro. The rebloomers start back up in the fall, but that leaves me about 6 weeks of no daylilies, except the occasional Purple d'Oro.

I'm hoping late bloomers will tolorate the heat a little better. If they start late, they might not poop out so soon. Does that make sense? I hope so.

Where do I find Purple d'Oro? Is it a small plant like Stella?

Our local Wal-Mart sells it in the Spring. It is in a box.

It's a little larger than Stella. Nice. I don't find any online, so I guess garden centers are prolly the best place to get 'em.

I don't remember where mine came from. I got it a long time ago.

For a long time I looked for Ruby Stella to complete my collection - LOL. But I never found it. I have Stella d'Oro, Tiny Stella and Purple d'Oro. Purple is the only one that performed for me.

If it's a late season re-bloomer, wouldn't you have a better chance of rebloom than someone in the north? you guys stay warmer longer, after the heat of summer has passed.

I'm sure that all of the re bloomers will re-bloom from late August until frost. That has been my experience so far.

In my garden, daylilies take July and August off. I'm hoping that the late blooming re bloomers will help fill that gap.

A newer Stella-type daylily that I really like is 'Going Bananas'. It blooms as long as Stellas/Happy Returns/Rosy Returns but has a bigger flower and a really nice yellow color.

I took this in my garden today. Its paired with Sedum 'Black Jack' in the background.

Wow! An old thread that resurfaced? I've made it a practice to visit local growers in August to see what is still blooming--lots of yellow, but other colors too if you look for them.

My Spacecoast Sunburst is sending up more thick bud stalks.
