On Thursday

I'll start with Wild Horses again, just because it looks good, unlike some of the following, oh, and I love it :)

Chance Encounter FFO - not fully open again! Plus spots. What does it need? It has a premium spot. Yet it is not improving. It's going to be its third summer here.

Russian Rhapsody - it's darker this year, which is better

Navajo Princess - couldn't get close to it, it's a daylily jungle out there, I certainly need to rework that bed after they're done. Oh, and it does open at night. I happened to look yesterday at 10pm, it was open

Loaves and Fishes - one of my favorites with triplets today :)

S.Doodlebug - is one of those my DH likes

Not so good an FFO on Soul on Fire. I think it's trying to bloom earlier than normal. Last year it was one of the first too, but I thought that was because I just got it in August of 2010

Berry Delicious - the flowers are getting way smaller. Exact same thing happened with.. say Cameo Luster. Started nice and then flowers were getting smaller and smaller. Probably one of the traits of southern daylilies in the north. Pretty still, I think

And a pale pink NOID 2FO

Thanks for looking!

How in general has Berry Delicious performed for you? I agree that Loaves and Fishes is a looker.

Berry Delicious and Loaves and fishes are my favorites, Wild Horses looks great too. I can't say what your problem might be with Chance Encounter. This is the 2nd full year in my garden, it has been good, except for the first season blooms when it was cool. Perhaps it doesn't like the cooler temps?

The flowers may be getting smaller on Berry Delicious, but the blooms are just as lovely as the larger versions. Loaves and Fishes and Wild Horses are fabulous!

Thanks all, and especially on agreeing with me about Loaves and Fishes :D :D
Mantis, Berry Delicious only just started, got it last June. Foliage is good, budded one of the first. I wrote the number of buds per scape but I forgot now, something like 20 on one and 15 on others. First flower was good, following are getting smaller. Has trouble opening after cool nites and once in a while tangles in its ruffles. I love it anyway :)
Ngraham, thanks for answering about your Chance Encounter. I'll pay attention to colder zone growers. I decided that I like the color of mine, and from afar I don't see poor opening and splotches, so I will let it be :)
