What are you adding this year?

maximus7116(MI)April 14, 2014

I'm getting antsy to see everyone's photos and am curious about what people are adding this year. Anyone care to share?

I'm adding several of Hanson's new intros, some from Paul Owen and a just a couple from the Lily Auction.

I vowed to add only 2 new ones (to me at least) this year after gifting away my excess last year. Well, that didn't last. My excuse is that I have to replace at least some of the daylilies I lost during our hard winter in addition to those two new ones......So goes promises to oneself............I'll be interested to see how Paul Owens daylilies do for you. Someone told me that some of his intros may not be colorfast in our climate. Something that is very important to me......Maryl

I made the same vow, Maryl, but I'm going to use the excuse of the longest winter ever that made me order more. FYI, I already grow a couple Owens intros that do very well here.

I don't know. I could tell you nothing, and I did add a lot in the fall, but I usually buy some things. I am avoiding the auction, I can tell you that.

Well Mantis, I have surveyed my "kingdom" and it appears that I lost nothing to the armadillo. Thanks goodness. Brazen Bandit was moved in the fall, and It is settling in nicely in it's new (better) site. There are several tender new fans that have emerged.

However, I will be adding (at least) one daylily. Jazz After Five died, and I love that one, so I will replace it.

Chris, are you adding Nelson Mandela as one of your Hansons?

Kay, glad that the severe winter did not affect you badly. Glad too that we don't have to deal with armadillos, though moles can damage a lot of plants here.

Kay, it sounds like you might not have fared as bad as others with this crazy winter. If you like Jazz After Five that much, I might have to look at that one!

Mantis, I was tempted by Nelson Mandela, but guess I was in a pink mood when I got the catalog so I ordered Occupy Your Garden and Diana Cooke Tuppeny. From Paul Owen I ordered Threshold of a Dream, Running for the Border and some others. Spring can't get here soon enough.

Chris, I think everyone is still a bit sour from the overbearing winter; and now I see a forecast for a hotter than normal summer for much of the country. But yes, I did order some, including some Norrises (Sam Abell, Belief in Vein, Works for Me). I am paying more attention to what I see growing in gardens in this area. I am quite sluggish this month, maybe because I am still suffering aftershock from the winter.

The colder it got last winter, the more I ordered. LOL! I really can't remember all I have coming. I know I have Acquired Arcadian Bliss, a Hanson , Red Edition from Floyd Cove, and Diamond Cutter by Holley coming. I just this week received a couple of fancy edged patterned eyes by Petit: Inviting Romance and Mystic Butterfly. I also ordered a couple of Maryott's newer intros. Also I've reordered several I lost over the winter, so I'll probably be getting some nice new bonuses with those.

I had to look up most of these that are being added, and really like the looks of Belief in Vein and the flounced white edge on Red Edition. Acquired Arcadian Bliss is one I look forward to seeing in your garden.

So far I don't think I have any missing after this winter, although a couple have shrunk, one to only 1 fan.
The ones I would love to add are out of my budget, so I'll have to wait til they come down. I do want to add a couple of patterned daylilies though, but I probably will wait til fall.

hello everyone don't post much but really enjoy reading these forums. when everything is said and done I think I will have added about 70 this year, just really got into daylilies about 2 yrs. ago as my roses keep taking hits from the Japanese beetles and old man winter. I added 3 Norris cultivars this year Sam Abell - Purple Passions Promise - Remembered Kisses about 12 karol Emmerich intro's, new and old about 10 Hanson intros all 2009 or older I believe & 7 Mary Jane Meadows intro's old and new plus others. I hope that I can figure out how to upload the pictures and share like so many of you do here, it's such a treat to see them all - happy gardening everyone

Hubcap, it sounds like you've been bitten by the daylily bug. I also had rose/Japanese beetle issues and that's when my daylily addition really hit. You've got some great hybridizers on your list, so be sure to post photos when you can.

Gale, you've got a great list coming. I've grown quite a few of these and especially love Joan Derifield, Beautiful Edgings and Inherited Wealth.

David, you'll need to post photos so I can see what your newbies look like. I'm not familiar with many of them and love being introduced to new daylilies by forum members. WDS is the only one I grow, but I didn't get to see it bloom last year. AB is supposed to be an outstanding purple.

David, I love the names for the daylilies you selected - very interesting.

I'm being careful - as in don't order too many - this year. Added four Judy Davisson daylilies, including Mean Green, High Water Mark, Lost in the Toy Store and Divas in Diamonds. Waiting to hear that two others are shipping: Musical Melody and Volusion Spider.

I have received all and have them planted. I am hoping that I may see some blooms from them this year, about half of the ones I planted the same time last year bloomed, shorter scapes and fewer buds than stats indicated, but still pretty.

Jean, the Joan Derrifield was $8 plus shipping, I received 3 fans. I purchased from the site listed in the Daylily sale post made about 3 weeks ago on here.

Maximus, That's what I like to hear and I picked those because I read a lot of similar posts about them.

Gale, Joan Derifield is an outstanding daylily here in Michigan. The watermark is beautiful, and wait until you get a look at those tree trunk scapes!
