All my FFOs

mnclerkJuly 14, 2013

So I've posted on the forums a few times that I'm just getting started with my daylilies. I bought several double or triple fans and mostly separated them out before planting the, which in retrospect was not the brightest thing to do. But in any case, some of the single fans sent up scapes anyway, and here are the pictures to prove it!

Heavenly Dragon Fire looks duller in the picture than it is in real life:

Here's a closeup of one bloom of Aztec Firebird:

And one droopy other scape of the same:

A duo of Eye on a String:

And a photo of its FFO:

Thanks for looking!

Your plants will take off quicker if you don't separate the fans. You have some nice unusual forms! I grow Eye On A String and it's a good performer once it settles in. Heavenly Dragon Fire and Aztec Firebird should really brighten up your garden when they clump up.

You have some nice ones, I really like spiders. Love Eye on a String, one I intend to add to my garden one of these days.

Eye on A String is my favorite out of this group it should be a stunner once it clumps up.

The more I look at daylilies, the more I find I really love UFs and spiders. Considering how I treated them, I'm really surprised that these sent up any scapes at all - I consider it a testament to the quality of the fans I was sent.

Surprisingly enough, the one fan I didn't touch in any way (Tuxedo Junction) did absolutely nothing this summer.

Some plants take longer to settle in. I have had several plants that did not bloom until the third year, but really took off them and have been super bloomers.

My favorite is Heavenly Dragon fire.
