Dumortieri

Nancy zone 6May 7, 2014

My first daylily bloom of the year is always Dumortieri, before any others, even Stella, have sent up scapes. Dumortieri bloomed May 5 this year, usually it blooms in April.

Great. Looks like your season is starting. I think we will definitely be behind here for when I will see my first blooms. At least we are getting plenty of rain which helps with the weeding.

What a welcome sight, especially a bloom in that color. Makes me feel like daylily season is coming soon.

Hooray! I was out today & spotted the very beginnings of scaptes on Selma rose & Stella.
Dumortieri is no fancy daylily, but it blooms for quite a while so very early. It is so simple, but rather charming too.

I like the earlies-maybe for the same reasons I like crocus and reticulata iris----I'm sick of winter. I have middendorfs, minor (two or three kinds), flava, dumortieri, and crosses every which way. Last year I finally managed to get seeds from H flava X minor (the real one???) but I have not planted them yet--must get at it but family illnesses and problems drive me up a tree. Old crosses are budding-I still have the old photos.
