Post #2394468

Hiyaa fellow gardeners. Until August of 2005, I thought that daylilies came in Stella D Oro yellow and orange. Sure, I'd seen packages at Walmart & the local hardware store, and had even bought a couple. These had wonderful pictures of beautiful flowers, but what actually grew & flowered looked fairly ordinary. So I went on to other flowering plants.

Well, last August, fellow DGer's introduced me to hybrid daylilies. Gorgeous flowers with exotic names, and even more exotic prices! $50 for a flower? $100 ? More ?! I'm hooked...but broke. I have kids, pets, a mortgage, car payments - no way can I spend that kind of money. And there are around 60,000 named cultivars to choose from. I've also discovered that some daylilies just don't have much bloom power. You get a few awesome flowers, but then that's it for another year. I wan't something inexpensive, with a long lasting display. I asked here for recommendations on daylilies for poor gardeners & have noticed others asking, so I decided to research some & made us a list.

These are all daylily plants that I have found for sale online, from sellers with a positive Garden Watchdog rating, for $10 or less for a double fan. They are all noted for having a high bud count (a difficult thing to find out about a cultivar), or repeat bloom for lots of Flower Power!

I have not listed any that are registered as evergreen, and I only have a couple on this list, as yet, so can't give you a personal review, but have provided links to Daves Plant Files for each cultivar.
As you can see from the list, there are lots of lovely flowers available for a low cost. Enough that we can fill a bed with a beautiful display of daylilies right now, then maybe add a special, pricey plant as a focal point.

So browse this list, check out the photos & dream daylily dreams. There are many inexpensive varieties out there & this list only includes varieties I could find an uncopyrighted photo of. If ya'll like this thread, I'll try to keep adding to it as I learn more.

Take care & happy planting,
mich

Thank you Sandy and Sue. Yes a group of C's and D's were tacked on to the end because somehow I missed fetching the Plant File links for that group, so had to go do it after I got all the others up and running. I sure do hope this is helpful to others out there. I'm going to work on getting as many of these as I can. I love daylilies! I love how they look when they open and how they change colors during the day. I am just crazy for them.

What you don't understand is-- this is just how it starts. :-)

You start out thinking "I will NEVER spend more than $10 on a daylily." Then you see one that you just HAVE TO HAVE that costs $12.00. And you buy it.

Then you think "I will NEVER go over $20 for a daylily". And suddenly, there's that ruffled, dark eyed beauty that costs $25.00 beckoning to you from the glossy catalog and you think "What the heck. I deserve it, and at least I have a hobby that keeps me in my backyard! How can hubby/wifey argue about that?"

And from there on, it's just a slippery slide down the slope to $100 daylilies! LOL! Been there, done that, got the teeshirt! Heehee!

Not everyone recomments Gilbert Wild, I have noticed, but I have gotten a lot of nice, inexpensive daylilies from them over the years. Only once did I get one that wasn't what it was supposed to be. It was supposed to be daring deception, and it is a bright red! (Do you think maybe it was a joke?) They have their sale fliers, and you can get lots for $3 or less.

Keyi, thank you so much for this thread and for all the work that went into it!! This is an invaluable resource for daylily newbies like me! I would've been happy to have found just a simple list of inexpensive strong bloomers... and you went the extra mile with the pics and the PF links... Thanks!!

I like Darryl Apps daylilies for rebloom power, and his 'Happy Returns' is getting easy to find at low prices...

I will be referring to this list in the future, for sure! This year, my "big" DL purchase was a bunch of $1 fans from Rainbow Hill at the LA, and I wasn't paying much attention to bloom power at those prices, just putting them on my list if I loved the picture, LOL.

Thank you all for your support and kind words. I am certainly not telling anyone they won't find themselves buying one of the pricey ones. Or better yet, trading a bunch of extra fans of these bloomers for a fan of one. And there are lots of wonderful traders out there who go way beyond the extra mile and send fans of all sorts of goodies when you are just expecting one plant. I recently got Robbie Salter & Shady Lady as extras when trading for Maelstrom! Color me very happy!
And yes, I found lots of under $10 plants that I didn't put on the list, because I couldn't find any record of bud count. I have a gorgeous seedling that had only 2 buds per scape and so far just one scape a fan. It was pretty, but for so few flowers...It'll have to go to the side yard, you know? I know why the hybridizer junked it. I got a couple of boxes of unwanted seedlings last fall, and at first, when they started blooming, I couldn't imagine why they were unwanted, but now that I'm learning more I am beginning to see why each plant was passed on. Like such low bud counts, flowers blooming down in the foliage or not opening all the way because of super ruffles. I focused this list on only the ones I found flower power info on. I wonder why bud count isn't included in the stats for registered daylilies? To me, that is pretty important. Just as important as flower size and height.
Anyway, I've rambled enough. Great Gardening to you all,
mich
As for the photos, I just copy pasted them together in photoimpression, the program that came with my scanner. My digicam program either doesn't let you glue photos together, or I just haven't figured out how yet. There is also a really neat program I've seen lots of people use called Picasa that lets you put photos together and save them.

IndaShade - I'm afraid of your line of reasoning.
It makes WAY too much sense to me LOL.

The method I have used in the past is the Pizza Test.
"Well, it's just the cost of one pizza," or "It's just
two pizzas;" however, I have NEVER ventured to
"It's only FIVE pizzas," but I'm afraid I may go there
someday with these daylilies. Anyway, that's the
logic I used with my husband and it worked.
He could always relate to a pizza.

keyi, you're such a sweetheart for putting so much work into this thread. Although I'm not a newbie, I still don't spend over $15, and that has to be a clump. So I will definitely use your list in the future. I have only a couple that are on it already. Like critter, I just found the Auction this year and started buying the inexpensive ones that had nice pics. Where have you had the most luck geting bud count and branching info? I only started paying attention to that 2 years ago when I discovered one of my Mini Stellas with over 240 buds on it. I had no idea until then that they could be so floriferous. But, as you said, it's not easy to locate that info unless you can find individuals' comments about a particular cultivar. Thanks again. (Did you really intend to be an enabler? I'd decided I was finished buying for the year! LOL)

Ooohhh... 'Mini Stella' may have just made my short list! I think it's also supposed to be more of a lemon yellow rather than the gold of the regular Stella that I'm not overly fond of. (?) You're right, the bud count info can be hard to find... although most descriptions will list whether or not the cultivar is a "rebloomer," rebloom can vary from a couple of quick bursts at different times to nearly constant blooming.

Thanks so much for all of the wonderful information.
I'm a newbie and find all of it invaulable. My first DL i paid 10 bucks for and thought i had really messed up. The wonderful members here showed me i got an awesome buy because there was several fans.
Now hmm paying 100 for one... Welp i think my hubby would toss me out to the chickens to mander over for months LOL
Maybe just maybe though, i would use Mahnot reasoning and tell him,Honey just think of it as one big ole hunk of side beef LOL
I do think, i probs should wait on that for sometimes however...
Thanks again for all of your hard work :)

What I most appreciate about your list, is that you took the trouble to find out "high bud count" - that's one thing we all want, but it can be hard to find that out!

I feel rich, with a list like this to pick from.

Great list! And quite a labor of love. One I didn't see that's hugely successful in my yard is Frequent Comment. Edited to say that of this date, Frequent Comment was available at Maryott's Daylilies for $10.00

Thank you all for your praise. It did take quite a while to compile the list. I have about 30 others with high bud counts that I am still trying to find for under $10 a DF to add to the list.

Thank you doss. Frequent Comment is a very pretty flower. I cannot find it listed online for under $10 / DF however. If you know somewhere it is offered for $10 or less for a double fan, please tell us. Such pretty shading. It's been on my wish list for a while, just not cheap enough yet that I've found.

Great thread keyi and I agree you can get some beauties for $10 or so.
One of my favorites last year was Persian Pattern. It is not listed as a rebloomer, but is a budbuilder and extended bloomer. One single scape bloomed for over 3 months for me last year! I didn't get a bud count on that scape because I broke off some of the brances after they finished before I realized what a long bloomer it was going to be. this year I am going to count. Know it had to be over 50. Patrons has it for $10 DF.

Yes, I do remember LOL. We got to know who
were the party people in the neighborhood and
would get behind their house nice and early on
Sunday mornings before all the bottles were gone.
5 cents refund for the small bottles, 25 cents for the
big ginger ale and club soda bottles.
We would sit on the curb on a hot summer's day
and wait for the ice cream wagon so we could spend
our refund money. Wow. I haven't thought of that
in years.

You guys need to lobby your legislatures to get those refunds re-established! Some states still have them, but they're also still a paltry nickel or dime - paltry compared to what you could buy with a nickel or dime in 1965!

Wow - that IS a great list - thank you!!!! The great thing is, it's all in one place. The bad thing is, it's in a thread that will eventually slide off the page :-(

But I hope it inspires everyone (including Keyi) to put notes in PlantFiles to advise others on your favorite hems. The lists of "top" daylilies here: http://davesgarden.com/pf/finder/index.php?sname=Daylilies&submit=submit is the direct result of comments and photos submitted. That list doesn't change nearly as often as it ought to. And the only way it will become dynamic is if people take a moment to add a comment and ZIP code for our faves (and not-so-favorites.)

doss, it's subjective - if there are 40 photos, then another "fair-to-middlin" quality photo (especially if it's similar to all the others) is probably redundant. But if there are 20 others...? Or 10? Or 5? Then there's probably room for another one. Or if you have a shot that's unique - one of the whole plant when everyone else's is a closeup (or vice-versa) then it's helpful to include it.

And comments are IMMENSELY helpful. It doesn't matter if it's high praise or rotten tomatoes, whichever applies, will help someone else (even if they ultimately disagree with your assessment ;o)

I do love reading peoples comments in plantfiles. I've added some myself, but this is my first year to know that anything had a name that mattered. *blush of embarassment
So either I don't know the name of the plant growing in my yard, or it's new and I don't have much to say about it yet. I'm working on that though. Trying to go through old labels and match it up to blooms or foliage as things grow this year.
I strongly encourage everyone to add to plant files and to garden watchdog. I always check the Dog before I order anything.

Hiyaa bluelytes, please see my June 17 4:47 p.m. post. Nothing too it. Just a photo program. You've probably got one on your puter already. Mine's ArcSoft Photoimpression, but there are lots. Photoshop, picture publisher, there are probably free image editors online. Try a place called Tucows.com for downloads. If you have a digital camera, you should have a photo program already somewhere. Lots of puters come with a photo editing program. I'll look around and see if I can find you a free downloadable one that will copy paste pics.

I order frequently from Homestead Farms in Owensville MO.
They send out LARGE healthy plants, well packed and labled. and Bonus plants too.
Sometimes he has even let me pick my bonus.
He also sells hostas, clematis, peonys and siberian iris. If you order in the fall he can ship hostas and lilies together. He has a printed book (no pics) and a very user friendly website.
His prices are very reasonable, I have bought lots for under $10. If you order with a friend or neighbor you can even split the shipping.

I would have to add "Stella's Ruffled Fingers" to this list.

Mine started blooming in late May and didn't stop blooming til Sept. 1st! The clump has grown from a couple of fans to about 25 fans since I planted them two summers ago. The scapes usually have 8-10 buds on them. And they are such a delicate flower - small recurved light peach petals with a chevron yellow throat. I don't have a picture I can post right now because I'll have to search thru my saved CD discs to find it...or someone can snatch it from Dave's plant files.

DPoitras - I have a friend here that goes to my church named Karen Poitras, and she has relatives in NY...are you related? She is married to Paul.

Thanks for all the wonderful words of support and all the adds of terrific daylilies. My current setup is now full to the top and I am seriously considering redoing some 'perennial' beds to take up the overflow. And I can't stop either. Daylilies are just SO awesome!

What an excellent thread. Price is definitely an issue these days and would much prefer having something that is floriferous. Personally I only have about 10 daylilies, but "Forgotten Dreams" outblooms the others by at least 3 to 1, and they're not small sized blooms at 61/2 inches. I see it used to sell for $100 back in 2003, but now can be had for $10.

It stands above the rest in my yard in height and in blooms. Consistently been 5-7 blooms a day for the last 7-10 days.

I came across this site earlier this morning.. http://www.liliesfromthevalley.com

Too bad they're only for sale IN CANADA at this time... I don't understand why... I would love to have a whole garden of these. Does anyone have any information as to why? and if it's just simply a biz decision, I'd like to find a buddy who would RESEND the package to me...if that was possible.

Looks like that's a lily site, not daylilies. But there are quite a few US sellers. Though they would probably all be sold out right now. They generally sell for fall or spring delivery. If you are wanting daylilies, a lot of places will deliver as long as it's not too hot, early spring and on through the growing season.

you can look in garden watchdog to see if there are ratings there. Also there is a separate dg forum specifically for other lilies, separate from daylilies if you would like to check it out.

Well, by what I can tell, it's a Canadian company. If it were to ship to the US, the postage to ship an order would probably be pretty high. Also, shipping plants from one country to another would require inspections or there could be other requirements that would cost the buyer even more.
I think it's cheapest and easier to find sellers within your own country that doesn't have any restrictions of shipping plants to your state. There are a lot of Lily and Daylily growers in the US.
There's a Daylily resource thread at the top of this forum. If you post on the lily forum here at DG, I'm sure those nice folks over there can help you find some lily resources.

Hope that has helped.

Well, you can get some good deals on the Lily Auction, where I currently shop for most of my daylilies. You can get both expensive and reasonably priced daylilies from Marietta Gardens, Maryotts, Slighthly Different Nursery, Oakes Daylilies, to name a few. They usually have all price ranges.

I think I've gotten my Lilies mostly from co-ops, so I don't have personal experience with any of the Lily growers. But I have bought from many Daylily growers. I have a few favorites that I order from every year, and every year I try some that are new to me, and usually find some new favorites.
I also buy from The Lily Auction, there are many good sellers there. I've bought from DG members, either through their classified ads or the Market Place here. Many sellers advertise on the Daylily Robin bulletin if you are a member of the AHS, I've bought from a number of them.

Here's a list, in no particular order of some of the online growers with websites that I can recommend. All of these growers sell reasonably priced daylilies, send healthy plants and are generous.

Critter Creek Farms
Delano Daylilies
Daylilies By The Pond
Daylily Manor
Simonton Bridge Daylily
Good Daylilies
Rainbow Reflections Daylily Garden
Earlybird Daylilies and Iris
Stardreamer Daylilies
Cottage Gardens Daylilies
White Top Daylily Farm (you can find them on Ebay or on the Plantstep site)
Day Bloomers Daylily Garden
Mystic Meadows Daylily Farm
Wynn's Daylily Gardens
Homestead Farms

Trading is a lot of fun. And the plants from trading are always extra special, because you get to think of your online friend every time it blooms. :-)

I hope you do not mind my responding to this thread! I just could not help it.
Thank you for all the hours this must have taken to give us this information.
It is very helpful and I will add it to my favorites.
Thanks again.

Welcome, Oma! Thanks for the bump! I've been looking at new (new-to-me, that is) DLs lately also; need to read through this thread again!

'Little Grapette' has been a good increaser for me. I think I got it maybe 5 years ago, and now I have 3 nice clumps in a border (interspersed with 'Happy Returns'). This year, I got several little shoots from the bloom stalks, too (memory lapse; I know there's a name for those!), so I have those babies potted up to share in spring.

Hi there you two. Long time since I actually talked to you Jill. Welcome Oma. You can spend the winter going thru old threads with SO many great pictures.
If you need to 'have' some more, dont forget the Lily auction. I guess its getting past fall planting time up there tho, that gives you all fall and winter to look ;-)

Jill your daughter is so fun, you know I have a special little place where she is concerned. :-)

Oh, yes, she's something else! 3 going on 13. :-) She was all excited this afternoon on a new bloom on a mandevilla that I brought inside for the winter, and she just brought her daddy some flowers from the garden (geranium 'Roxanne', still blooming away) that she found when we went out to scavenge a couple late figs for a snack.

She's become a very active participant in looking at photos and choosing new plants for the garden (online and also at our favorite nursery, home to her favorite parrot). We'll have fun making a DL wish list over the winter!

Enjoy every moment Jill!
