How about a thread showcasing our favorite daylilies? It seems to be about mid season for blooming in my garden. Here's a few that have just bloomed in the last week or so.

'Forest Lake Raggamuffin' just seems to get better each year, with bigger flowers and more teeth.

'Hillbilly Heart' is another "wow"!

And this is a seedling from 'Forest Lake Raggamuffin' x 'Meet Joe Black' that I'm very impressed with for it's very first flower.

I know there are daylily growers out there, please show your beauties!!

RE: Daylilies

RE: Daylilies

Wow, Laurie and Marcia, some beauties for sure.
I find I'm liking daylilies more and more. I've noticed that the wind doesn't knock them down. That's a bonus.
I agree that Hillbilly Heart is a definite WOW, and Brookswood Lee Causey would light up any garden!
Thanks for sharing!

RE: Daylilies

Marcia, I really like Destined to See! I like the edges and watermarks. For me the more colours in a daylily the more I like it, it seems. And Brookswood Lee Causey certainly has a nice cheery face!

Yes, daylilies can certainly take the wind. Unlike lilies that are very top heavy. A storm last week completely flattened a huge clump of lilies in the backyard.:(

RE: Daylilies

I'd give Destined to See away to a good home but there's some really bad invasives stuff in that area of the garden and i wouldn't want to pass it on. :(

RE: Daylilies

You can wash away all the soil and even take off most of the roots. Just leave the bulbous part.

Near as I can tell, daylilies are indestructible.

RE: Daylilies

Looking good both of you! Laurie, I've seen Forest Lake Ragamuffin as the parent of a lot of modern DLs so it must be good for breeding as well as in its own right.

Some of mine didn't bloom this year. Might have been too hot and dry since June. Here are some of my favourites

Wedding Band

Fuchsia Dream

Lilting Belle doesn't photograph well but it's a very cool daylily in person. I like its lavender-grey colour.

RE: Daylilies

Wow, is that 5 flowers on Fuchsia Dream? After the move here, the most blooms I've had on one plant together has been two. I'm looking forward to when the clumps are mature and there will be multiple blooms at the same time.

I can see the appeal to Lilting Belle, I like the spidery, unusual forms because they are so different. But yeah, I do agree that sometimes they are more difficult to photograph it seems.

RE: Daylilies

Yeah, Fuchsia Dream just went nuts this year. It had a bit shorter scapes than normal though, it's usually quite tall but this year it was just acceptably tall.

RE: Daylilies

It's taken a few tries to get a good picture of Skinwalker just because the flower's so big. It's so alien looking...I love it!;)

RE: Daylilies

Here's Chocolatelady:
Hemerocallis 'Chocolatelady'

Country Melody (not a great pic of it):

I'll need to go out and take more pictures tomorrow as there are a lot more blooming now.

RE: Daylilies

One of my favourites..........Firestorm

RE: Daylilies

Oooo, a poly the form of it!

A couple more:
