Most of Sultry Summer's blooms aren't as dark as they were last year, here is a nice one though

Romanian Rendevous for the most part isn't looking as good as last year, most of the blooms just don't seem to be filled out nicely. Here is a nice bloom of it though

Christmas Is is one I'm debating on getting rid of. I kinda like the look of it, but it has very few blooms, doesn't rebloom & has multiplied very little. I guess I should move it & see if it does better somewhere else before I dispose of it.

Ooh, World Premier is nice and puffy and ruffly. You can really see the Victorian Lace influence in that one. My Desperado is starting its parade here too. I tried to take a photo of it, but I had too much lens fog. I adore those white Asiatic lilies. I've never seen any that looked like that. Thanks for the show!

Lovely flowers, daylilies and lilies! I love World Premiere, so many flowers, and Sultry Summer is dark and beautiful, Romanian Rendevous (I'll never remember the spelling ;)) is my favorite! Thanks for info on Christmas Is. I like how it looks.

Lilies look great. You know I love lilies! I have to say El Desperado is my favorite today, just beautiful. But World Premier is a stunner also, especially in that gorgeous clump.

You know I have CHRISTMAS IS also and now that I think about it I can't remember it blooming in the two years it has been here. Humm. Not good.

I love World Premier, I hadn't realized one of its parents is Victorian Lace, but yes, I can see it now. It really does bloom well.
I really like the look of Christmas is, that great big eye & wide open look of it is just different than anything else in my garden. It just doesn't perform well.
The white lily is called Centerfold I believe. I think it is dwindling in my garden though. I used to have 5 plants & down to 2. May have to get some more plants, I do like this one.

I didn't get a picture of Hot Lava, somehow I missed it when I was out with the camera. I've been watching for this one to bloom. It tried to bloom last fall, but frost got it before it could bloom out. I guess it has been sulking, I didn't think it was going to bloom at all & it finally sent out a scape. Then it looked like it was going to open yesterday. Poured rain yesterday afternoon, which we needed, but I thought if it did open it would look awful. I finally thought to look at it a few minutes ago, & it is just beautiful. Amazing that it held up so well all day. I'll get out & get a photo when I've cooled off a bit :)

Oh goodness, WORLD PREMIER looks like it's playing a game of musical chairs and they're all trying to sit down on the same chair. What fun. It's my favorite.

Gotta love World Premier, beautiful flower and it looks like a great performer. Love the look of Christmas Is , but thank you for the information on it. Sultry Summer is a beauty. El Desperado gets my vote as favorite though. That is a fabulous picture of a great daylily.

El Desperado is stunning in your pic and World Premier is a gorgeous mass of blooms.

WOW, look at that jumble of beautiful blooms on World Premiere! Mine is just barely showing scapes but now I can't wait. I have that Centerfold lily too. It certainly is unique. I have lost several of my lily bulbs every year, presumably from chipmunks or moles. I also love Sultry Summer. It is a beauty.

Color of World Premier is enticing. Don't worry about showing another pic of the same cultivar. I, for one, would like to see more of World Premiere to see what it's branching is like.

World Premiere looks wonderful. You can post as many pictures of it as you like.

Your clump of World Premier puts new meaning to the phrase "burst into bloom." How exquisitely dramatic and beautiful!

Cheers!
