Today I found a couple more re-blooming, which raises the total to 71. Not up to the 103 from last year, but not too bad.

Not bad at all! And the simple elegance of Nile Crane gets my vote today.

RE: Monday's Best

i love your Bob Watson -- is it a registered daylily? i cannot seem to find it online anywhere... sob.

RE: Monday's Best

Kay, the amount of rebloom you get is simply amazing. I could choose any of these for favorite, they are all so pretty but my number one for today is Forsyth's Peekaboo.

RE: Monday's Best

With the exception of some Richard Norris plants, and a few others such as ONE FINE DAY, I don't often see rebloom here. (That is partly because of the shade; I'm not sure what the other reasons are.) I would be delirious if I got get rebloom on half, or even a third, of my daylilies.

(That said, I was very pleased to recently discover a rebloom scape coming up on a single fan plant of SMALL WORLD BASIL HONAKER. This is the first year that the plant bloomed for me, and it is sitting in a one to one and a half gallon pot in an area where it gets a lot of shade. I also currently have rebloom on ARCTIC LACE, another new to me daylily.)

Forgot to add... my vote is for 'Nile Crane', too.

RE: Monday's Best

Uh oh, I think I found another one for the list. Forsyth's Peekaboo is so striking, and I don't think I have any daylilies with that color combination. Maybe it's just your good photography.

I've always admired Pineapple Moon but, because it's a Trimmer and they don't do well, I've resisted. I'll just enjoy your blooms (and reblooms) instead.

RE: Monday's Best

So many rebloomers, that's great!
I like Forsyth's Peekaboo a lot and Spiderman, but they are all very pretty

RE: Monday's Best

Mantis, Nile Crane has bloomed a lot, but you can only post so many, so I am not sure I have posted it this season.
Roxanna, it is a Shooter intro, Marietta Gardens, but they no longer offer it.
Thanks, Rita, a good many of mine that have always re-bloomed aren't so far, but I am surprised to have this many because this year it was so cool my season started a bit late.
Thanks, Polymerous, I have no idea why I have as many re-blooms as I do. I just enjoy them.
Chris, that one is one from Roycroft, It is actually, Forsyth's Peekaboo. I like it because it is a bit different.
Thanks, nat4b. It is nice to have a good many still blooming.

Nile Crane, Forsyth Peekaboo, and Possession of Obsession are my picks, but of course, all your flowers are just super. Avedon.

It's great that you have so many reblooming. I don't think I will have nearly as many rebloom as last year because of the problems with Bermuda grass in several beds. So far, I've found rebloom scapes on 23, with Colorado Moon Fire having the greatest number of rebloom scapes. My favorites today are Nile Crane and Pineapple Moon.

RE: Monday's Best

Thank you all for looking and commenting. On Bob Watson, there wee actually three blooms, but they were all rain spotted, so I just snapped one of them and it looked better than I expected, so I posted it. The Shooters, at Marietta, quit offering some of their intros after a few year. Helen's Pink Gingham last year, and Bob Watson isn't available this year. Both are lovely plants that consistently re-bloom for me, and I mean re-bloom with as many or more scapes as the initial bloom.

Hostabuff, Pineapple Moon was one of those that took three years to start blooming, but it has made up for it.

Jean, Yes, PC has a huge bloom. I found number 72 re-blooming this morning, and it already had two buds when I found it. It's a nice bonus, isn't it.

Debra, I have about 23/4 of what I had last year. I have Bermuda grass too, and I bought a herbicide that can be used with daylilys. Kills Bermuda, but doesn't bother daylilys. I've used it before, and I just need to get out there and use it now after all this rain.

Thank you all again for looking and commenting.

Ok it's not going to happen out of this group I officially name them all my favorites, no way can I pick a favorite out of a awesome group.

Philistine Champion and Pineapple Moon are my favorites. Maybe not as good as you had last year but still a very impressive amount of rebloom. I'd be thrilled if I got more rebloom than I can count on my fingers!

What is the name of the herbicide you are using on the Bermuda grass?

RE: Monday's Best
