A collection of doubles (photos)

celeste(zone 4 NH)March 8, 2013

I notice that the doubles aren't as popular and that some folks love them while others don't care for them. I have a small collection of them and enjoy them and although I do prefer the single form daylilies, I think they add a new dimension to my gardens. Here's some pictures from last summer that I neglected to post.

Celeste

'KING KAHUNA' (my favorite... it is HUGE, 7" across and lights up the garden)

DELTA'S DREAM

'GLORIOUS AUTUMN'

MADGE CAYSE

STELLAR DOUBLE ROSE

SCATTERBRAIN

ZADA MAE

LAND OF COTTON

SILOAM GLORY BEE

SILOAM PEONY DISPLAY

HOLIDAY PARTY

JERRY PATE WILLIAMS

NIGHT EMBERS

APRICOT CREAM TRUFFLE

MOSES' FIRE

PEACH MAGNOLIA

NOID

A very pretty collection, Celeste. I don't think I have any doubles, although I am sure I will eventually break down and add a couple..for variety, as you said.

I especially liked Scatterbrain and Holiday Party.

Too bad you couldn't just teleport down here. You could give me moral support while the seemingly unending clean up continues.
It has been a beautiful day, and I spent 5 1/2 hours weeding, and mulching plus planting a few pansy clumps I got for $1 each at Lowes. Gotta have somewhere to hide Easter Eggs for the grandkids.

There are two forms of doubles: Hose in Hose and Peony shaped. I'm partial to Peony shaped myself (as one detractor described them, "those daylilies with a waddd up kleenex in the middle"-lol). You have an excellent selection and even though Zada Mae looks to be a hose in hose to me, I am in love with that warm creamy yellow. Holiday Party is a real pretty one in person(Earlybird sells it) and your picture does justice to it. I've grown Madge Cayse and it was one of the latest bloomers I had. Another nice one. I like Siloam Glory Be too. Actually, they are all pretty. Thanks for sharing them with us.........Maryl

I have just started to get a few doubles. I see we both like Peach Magnolia. Madge Cayse is very nice, I love the color. Others I like are Night Embers and Glorious Autumn. The best one, IMHO, is King Kahuna! Thanks for posting. Marg

I'm sold on doubles too. I started adding them 2 years ago. Could use a few more :-). Nice photos.

Well, that was wonderful!

I have doubles, not many, but I don't have any of the ones you showed. I can see myself getting KING KAHUNA. Also interested to see that GLORIOUS AUTUMN thrives for you - I've always wanted that one. As for the rest, I could be happy with any of them.

My very favorite double continues to be Apps's MERINGUE MIRAGE however. It's one of those daylilies that I will always always have in my garden.

Oh, and I do love those Kropfs!

I love them but don't have very many. It seems I keep buying them but some don't do all that well. Condilla always doubles and is very nice

While it is not a fast spreader, I have grown very attached to Tropic Embers-it has had three sets of blooms for the last two years!
