I am new to this forum and I am totally enjoying all the beautiful pictures! Makes me wanna go daylily shopping.

I guess about 8 years ago, I had sort of started in daylilies. Bought some horses and forgot about my daylilies. Now, I am trying to revive the survivors! I have also purchased some seeds the last couple of years from the auction.

This is the first year that my seedlings have bloomed. I will post a few pictures of the flowers that have bloomed the last couple of days. Nothing fancy yet... But boy have the lilys changed since I was shopping for them last.

Thanks so much for all the beautiful pictures!


Seems like I have a few that I lost tags on... This one is an unknown

RE: New to the Forum

Thanks Brittie and Avedon!! I love the reds and darker colors. I also like the ruffly edges. One of my favorites is Michaels Sword since beginning to look around again!

What is the difference between watercolor and eye on a daylily? I am going to post a few more pic's but not sure if we can post in a follow-up message.



RE: New to the Forum

Hi Sheila - Welcome to the forum! I really like your dark red unknown. It does have a velvety look to it. A watermark is where the eyezone is lighter in color than the petal color.


RE: New to the Forum

Welcome to the forum Sheila. That orange unknown is very vibrant. All the pics are very nice.

Yes, you can post additional photos in a follow-up message.
Have fun with the daylilies


RE: New to the Forum

Thanks Debra!! It is one of my favorite Reds.

Julia, the story on the unknown orange is I had purchased Diamonds and Pearls late one year and the next spring I recvd a very nice letter from the daylily farm apologizing for sending me the wrong daylily. They refunded the purchase of Diamonds and Pearls and said to keep and enjoy the flower I received. Still it is not what they thought. So it is just a beautiful blessing each time it blooms!

There's not a bad one in the group. I especially like the unknown orange. Too bad daylilies don't bloom around Halloween because that would be a great color for Charlie Brown's pumpkin patch.......Maryl
