This is ridiculous, no rain this summer at all, no rain in the forecast for this week, but the heat wave will be back. My new potted plants are drying out (I water but they start to have the same thing as my sick ones in the ground), and only Incendiary sent a tiny new leaf from the center.

This is my late noid I call midrib - so pale

Tower of Babel on instant rebloom scape, those up above are almost always splotchy

Fear Not - had a good green foliage all season until about a few days ago, I am afraid, I sure don't want to lose this one!

DD noid on instant rebloom

For the most part all instant rebloom scapes are way shorter than the original ones, not only on this one; but at the same time I've never had so much IR before

Super Mama's center looks almost blue in the morning

Peace Beyond Understanding - took a break before opening one of its last flowers

Cosmic Traveler - poor thing, half of the plant is dead and this is the only good scape

Sea Dragon - loved it last year, this year it's among the sick ones, sadly

Seventy Times Seven first flower on a short instant rebloom scape

Russian Destiny

Yellow Titan - had 4 today! 4th was on the second scape

And the last flower on Mama's Cherry Pie

Thanks for looking!

You have tons blooming -- my favorites are Yellow Titan and Fear Not. It's been such a bad year for daylilies, but I'm hoping next year will make up for it.

Fear Not is such a beauty. I also really like Tower of Bable. In fact, you have a lot of really pretty ones still. Super Mama, cosmic Traveler and Yellow Titan are all great. We just need to survive this year. (except Rita, and here foliage is unreal lovely, not brown, and scruffy like mine)

They really managed to look great for you today. I would choose each and every one but Cosmic Traveler really jumps out at me. Poor thing, I hope it recovers as it is so pretty.

Sea Dragon is still my favorite.Not to worry about the dead stuff on the daylilies. it has been so dry this season that they probably have gone dormant. They'll be back unless it has crown rot.. Ellie

No favorites as they all look good. You can't tell from the photos that your garden is suffering.
