Lots of bright bloomers today.

RED SKELETONS. I moved this one this spring from a partially-shaded bed, and it really appreciated the relocation. Tall, thick scapes and nice branching.

TEMPORARY AND ETERNAL showing more of the polychrome effect. What a great daylily.

You sure do have a visual feast going on there in your garden. The first 3 are wonderful, and I love Wispy Rays and Robert Lee Batt too!

Thanks! I've been very happy with RS this year.

I like the lilies. Great picture of the group....Jerry Hyatt has a lovely pattern and color in your picture. No Boys Allowed is my second favorite for the lovely graduation of colors from the throat to the petal tips. Nice ones all of them.......Maryl

RED SKELETONS is very nice, a real eye catcher! PLEASE SAY YES is very pretty. How big is the flower? I love the color and form of ROBERT LEE BATT. WISPY RAYS is another garden stand out. Marg

RE: Weekend Favorites

Thanks, Polymerous and Maryl. The lilies have been here longer than the daylilies, and still perform well.

Marg, Please Say Yes is registered as 6" but I'm not sure it's quite that big here. It does have a great bud count, so I don't mind the flowers not being huge.

RE: Weekend Favorites

Fear Not seems to always have flawless flowers. Yes, I think Please Say Yes is closer to 5 1/2 inches. Of course, this year everything seems smaller.

RE: Weekend Favorites

I would like to take a walk through your garden today, Chris. So many lovely ones. I really like the way Red Skeletons looks. Fear Not is always a favorite, No Boys Allowed looks huge. Wispy Rays outdid itself in my garden this year, and yours looks like it is really doing well. I love your lilies...they are beautiful.

Kay, you're welcome any time! Yes, NBA is enormous and was a nice maiden bloom, although it was a long time coming and I almost gave up on it.

RE: Weekend Favorites

I'm happy to see you finally got a bloom on No Boys Allowed, and it's a beaut! Mine still has not put up a scape this year. But at least it survived the winter in a pot. Temporary and Eternal looks wonderful. That's one I bought three years ago and have never seen bloom. It may or may not have survived the winter. I have one in a pot with a faded label that may be it, but it also has not scaped. I think my favorite is Robert Lee Batt. I grow that one too, but it has lived so many years in a pot that the plant is somewhat weakened. I love that precious little froggy!

RE: Weekend Favorites

Sorry to hear about your NBA. I don't have many buds, but the bloom is enormous. T&E is such a great daylily, so I hope yours survived. I think you like polychromes, right? It's a good one. RLB has always done ok here, but this is definitely its year. It's loaded with buds and seems to have exploded on the scene after about five years here.
