Favorite Whites, Anyone?

Not sure if we're all starting to go into hibernation, but I thought I'd get everyone's votes for favorite whites and creams.

My faves start with ARCTIC LACE:

Then MAL:

And then VICTORIAN LACE:

I don't grow enough whites, and the few others I have didn't do squat this year. I'm on the lookout for some good ones that will do well in my climate.

I only had a few whites that bloomed this year. Ice Cream Emperor, Fancy Lace, and Going Green didn't bloom, and Fringy produced a few blooms that I didn't feel were worth taking a pic of, but that one was new this year. Below are the few that did.

I have so few, and virtually none that are round/bagel-y/full formed. LAST SNOWFLAKE did not make an appearance this summer. So both of my two favorites are UFs:

SONG OF MYSELF (Ball 09), which is still in bloom and has clumped up beautifully:

RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

That ARTIC LACE is a beauty, CHRIS> your VICTORIAN LACE is white?Must be the climate makes a difference, as mine is a light Pink. or could be the camera,I guess.my camera don't always show the actual colors.
ROYAL FROSTING sure is a pretty one.

White is probably my least favorite color in daylilies. One of the problems is that white in daylilies is so seldom pure white. Not too bad if the ground color is a very pale yellow that lightens to almost white, but when it's that pale peachy color it looks kind of dirty or rusty to my eye. Anyway, for me the truest white has been the classic Joan Senior. Her color, along with her long bloom period and largish blooms adds to her appeal to me.....Maryl

RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

What beautiful whites! I added Arctic Lace this year (had one spot left and gave it to AL) :) Thanks to Chris's pics and somebody else's recs.
I also consider Victorian Lace white / cream. Don't have many, and I really like whites, especially planted next to reds.


 o
RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

Jean, I've never had any pink in Victorian Lace. It's not white, but I'd call it cream here.

Nat, I hope Arctic Lace does well for you. It sure has become a favorite here.

I was thinking I'd try my luck with Last Snowflake since several GW members who are in my climate have had decent luck with it. Alas, I can't find it listed for sale anywhere.

I also meant to say that although all the whites posted so far are very nice, my two favorites are Arctic Lace and Irish Jackpot. Haven't heard of IJ before. Love the edge on it. Will check it out.....I was hoping someone would post a picture of Fringy. I'd like to see how it grows for people.........Maryl

RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

My favorites are Heavenly Angel Ice, Last Snowflake, Arctic Lace and Above the Salt. I got Ivory Titan as a bonus this year, and bought Winter Treasure and Royal Frosting earlier this summer, so I'm looking forward to seeing those 'whites' in my yard next year!

Chris, I know I saw Last Snowflake in a couple of price lists over the last month or two when I was poking around. I just checked a couple of price lists again, and Sterrett has it listed, I have no idea if it's available though.

Here is Above the Salt

RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

I don't have many whites but here's 3 of my 7! Joan Senior is the whitest and most favorite. So Lovely is really pretty and blooms and rebooms a lot; I can never get a picture that captures is beauty, and this seedling that someone gave me is a great late bloomer and is still blooming now. My other 4 are Gentle Shepherd, Past Forgetting, Radiant Moonbeam & an unknown.


 o
RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

Arctic Lace has been phenomenal this year. Just about the time I thought it was on its last bloom it sent up a rebloom scape so on it goes. Early in the season it has a pale pink blush but then moves to a clearer white later on. Our other white is Canadian Diamonds, which is a truer white all season.

RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

I lost the tag to this one, which bugs the heck out of me because I adore it. Can anyone help with id? Do you think it's Joan Senior?

Ruth - Winter Treasure is one of my favorites too - definitely the whitest of my white daylilies.


 o
RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

My top favorite white this season was Queen of Narnia.

RE: Favorite Whites, Anyone?

Mine are already pictured.

Arctic Lace, Joan Senior, and , especially, Heavenly Angel Ice.
