We usually have a thread with clump shots, so here goes. Mine aren't the best yet, but two have more than one bloom. The first is Royal Eventide and the second is Tigerland.
Thanks for the pictures. My Tigerland is about to bloom here in Central Ohio.
I'm pretty sure first one is Chamonix, Second is named but I've lost it's tag. I can almost remember but can't quite pull it out.Third one is Bradley Hardy. Last is bed w/ Domonic,Sparkling Orange and unseen on corner of bed El Desperado.Last picture is a duet rather than a clump,Chinese Scholar I think...this ones actually tagged but I'll have to look at it at daybreak to confirm.

Beautiful. Sure do love seeing these blooms.
gingerjar, I love love love! your Mexicali Miss. Great color.
shirley temple curls...wow..never heard of her! or Bali watercolor! Just lovely.
Blonde Ambition looks beautiful even if it doesn't double! All Very Nice!
Beautiful!! I know what you mean about adding to the want list for sure!!
Peggy, where did you find the Arkansas Post? I would love to have that one just because of the name! I am also trying to get Ouachita Beauty, and Camden Gold Dollar....... I have at least found a vendor for those if they still have any available. I am waiting for an email to verify.
Love all the pics! Kiss my Grits is gorgeous! Might need that one just because of the attitude! :)
They are all so beautiful................is there a daylilies anonymous or something for those of us who want them all ????
all beautiful!!! Love Kiss My Grits, Scnickel Fritz, Little Business, And Tod Fox!!
Don, all of them are nice. My SC Hot Topic have a few scapes. I should see it bloom for the first time.
I have a question for ya'll..... I am in the middle of doing some foundation planting in front of our home and I have a background of azaleas and gardenias in one area...... another section has some small magnolias, camellias, and weeping youpon. Would ya'll advise planting some daylilies in front of these foundation shrubs? I have a space of about 3' the entire length of my house (100+ ft) that needs "something" in it. Of course, some of it needs to be evergreens or something that will have some interest in winter ..... but I am thinking daylilies would sure brighten it up in the summer!! :)
Genna, I would suggest a mixture of plants to have some color all season long. In my front border I am using some long blooming daylilies. they might not be the latest and greatest but, they will be blooming for a long time.
On and On

Thanks so much for taking the time to share that list. I am fairly new to daylilies and don't have a clue which last longer..... do you have suggestions as to specific plants that are sun loving that might go well in that bed? I am not good at landscape planning at all !! I know from looking at your pictures that you dont have that problem!!
Gallardia comes in many color combination and bloom from spring to frost. Mesa Yellow is a fairly new long blooming one. Cone flowers. Heucheras are great for foliage. Hibiscus. Poppies, annuals and perennials. Clematis. Delphiniums. Lily trees. It's all about likes and dislikes. There's so much out there. Here is a couple place to start. I am hope others will chime in with their suggestions. gracefulgardens.com and bluestoneperennials.com. This is in addition to your local nursery. Mike
LOL...well, my local nursery doesn't have much in the way of perennials! Almost all annuals...... a few azaleas, roses, etc some hydrangeas - that is about it :( Never heard of a lily tree - will need to look that up. I have a hardy hibiscus, but it gets way to large to go in the area that I have left...... but the cone flowers might work (i have a hard time getting them to live more than one or two seasons!), clematis could work in the background for sure.... not sure delphiniums will survive our heat and humidity. I do like the heucheras although i have never tried any...... if they will take the sun, I need to try a few of those as well. thanks so much for the info!
