This first one is Different Direction. It's a big and bold flower--just new in the garden this spring.

Wedding Knight is becoming one of our favorite near whites. It's a very fancy flower.

Spacecoast Shellcracker is a small flowered daylily. The colors are very intense.

One last flower today. Barbara Watts was just planted this spring but has given us huge flowers. I don't usually like doubles but this one is special.

Barbara Watts is very toothy. I wonder if Kirchhoff has thoroughly tested this one in the North. I like the sculpted veining of Wedding Knight, but not the fact it is evergreen. Hope these flourish for you.

Mantis_oh, Wedding Knight was a bonus plant that we received in the spring of '12 so it has overwintered twice. Last winter we got down to 15 below on two occasions. Luckily, both times we had snow cover so perhaps that helped. It was moved last fall and came through the winter very well. It might be a different story if we have a cold snap without the snow cover.

I really like that double and I'm not that fond of doubles either, except for Siloam Double Classic which I love it. very nice blooms.

What a great selection of daylilies. A color for everyone. I particularly like Different Directions color combo, and Barbara Watts double frills combined with her color is lovely.........Maryl
