Christine, ROCKS CRY OUT is one of my Korth intros and one of my very favorite daylilies. I always take lots of pictures of that one!

I think the edge on Rocks Cry Out is even more amazing when you realise that the hybridizer (Phil Korth) hybridizers in a cold zone 4.

Debra, thanks. JULIE NEWMAR usually takes a very good picture for me.

Hi Rita...always love your flowers! Does Michael Bennet hold up well in heat or rain? Also, how is the bud count for you? Thanks, Andrea

Great seeing your DL's starting to bloom, Michael Bennet is my favorite. I'm glad to see Kisses Like Wine I just received it as a gift plant and now I know what it looks like I really like it.

Wow, Rocks Cry Out is gorgeous. Julie Newmar is very pretty too. Green Rainbow is very interesting too, it has a lot going on with the 2 toned effect & coloring. Your daylilies are really starting up now!

YAY! Your blooms are starting and it will be such a treat to enjoy them with you. My favorite is Michael Bennett of these. I love the deep saturated color.

Thank you everyone!

Andrea, Michael Bennet is planted in a semi shady spot so sunfastness has never been a problem here. I never counted buds years before but went out and counted now and each scape has about 9 buds. I would think it would be the same at your house. Someone gave me this daylily as a bonus plant but since it was years ago I don't remember who.

Linda, KISSES LIKE WINE is a fabulous daylily. A good increaser and strong bloomer.
