I really like the bloom on this, but I wasn't all that impressed, overall, this first year. It should be said that most of my plants this year are shorter than they were last year and I'm not entirely certain why, but Mynelle's Starfish was VERY short...maybe 4" tall, and sat tucked away in the foliage so that it was difficult to know when it was blooming. I think it had a total of 2-3 blooms this first year. It didn't set a pod on the bloom I pollinated, but that isn't much to go on. I'll try to come back next year once I've tested its fertility (both ways) to a greater extent.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Jungle Beauty'), DogsNDaylilies wrote:

This is a reliably blooming cultivar in my yard, with LOTS of buds that bloom across several weeks. It's extremely dark, but pictures have a hard time capturing its true color. It is nearly black but most photos make it look red. Its throat is green and its bloom is about an average size. Its first year (last year) it had canoe-shaped petals (and splotches?) the first week after planting, but then it improved. This year I don't recall any issue with any of the blooms. It's sunfast (in all-day sun in my yard), and it has nice, thick scapes, good petal substance (kind of waxy or velvety, depending on the weather, it seems), and lots of blooms. It's a keeper.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Goose Rocks'), DogsNDaylilies wrote:

Goose Rocks is new to me this year and I was surprised that it bloomed at all. Its petals have a crepe-y texture to them and the blooms overall are a peachy color, but I did notice that today it faded to a light pink with an attractive raspberry-colored dot --- for lack of a better description --- at the ends of the petals and sepals. I'll have to keep an eye on it and see whether it does that again next year. Today was its last bloom. It was milder weather than normal (although sunny most of today with a thunderstorm mid-day), and it's still a new plant that's getting established, so for all of those reasons, I'm not assuming it normally fades unless I see it happen again next year. It does appear to be pollen fertile, but I've yet to determine pod fertility (I've only had a few blooms on it this first year, but none of them set a pod).

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Olallie Kevin'), DogsNDaylilies wrote:

Olallie Kevin is a little darker than the pictures show, but the pictures aren't too far off. It's a really pretty red color. It didn't bloom the first year in my garden (last year), but that might have been because of the trauma it endured. This year, it flowered well and it has been both pod and pollen fertile! It also doesn't seem to have been impacted by whatever it is that is causing most of my daylilies to be shorter this year; Olallie Kevin was still a pretty decent height.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Jim's Pick'), DogsNDaylilies wrote:

If this isn't the most fragrant daylily I own, it's certainly in the top five. It's scent is so sweet and heavenly, I think I could leave my nose in it all day! It's also a beautiful color, too; difficult to describe, but easy to fall in love with. It has consistently big blooms and fairly consistent coloring, too, which resembles something like a mango sherbet and raspberry sorbet mixed together. It didn't multiply a great deal its first year (maybe expanding from 4 fans to 5?), but it is very fertile, producing a good number of seed pods (large seed pods, at that).
