It's always so exciting to see the new ones open--kind of like Christmas Day--what's in that package? You have so many pretties today, must love them all, but for sure, Cerulean Warbler is fantastic. Avedon

Thanks everyone. Rita, I have been patial to Citrix since you posted the first picture of it.

Jean, I think you like Luddy's cultivars as well as I do since you often choose them for your favorites...and they are beautiful.

Ellie, Cerulean Warbler is a very photogenic bloom. I love it too.

Avedon, it is very like opening packages on Christmas...you think you know what you have, but want to see it!

Everyone, I discovered two of the daylilies blooming today had a sweet fragrance...Drink the Light, and slightly softer, SC Behavior Pattern...a touch of honeysuckle. Very nice.

Kay, My Cerulean Warbler hasn't bloomed this year and there is no sign of scapes. So I will have to enjoy yours from afar. Thanks for sharing!

Kathy, I have two clumps of it, and it usually blooms early for me. It has always beena really, really good bloomer. I have multiple scapes on both clumps. My suggest6ion is to try a different spot. I am now firmly convinced that if they aren't blooming, they aren't happy.

I moved Pirate King (just before shovel pruning) and Winners trophy because it didn't bloom. Both of them have done wonderfully this year. It is a worth a try, because that on is too pretty to not enjoy. And it's a Florida Native!

My favorite of these today is Cerulean Warbler. I'm pleased to see mine is putting up scapes this year. It seems to bloom only every other year for me.

So many pretty ones. Citrix, Cerulean Warbler, Purple Breasted Honeycreeper. And Channel Cat Vernon is an interesting bloom. I'm looking forward to seeing more pics of this one.
