Welcome! Gary

I had not heard of them either - it sounds like marketing. I wondered if someone was renaming older daylilies or something. So I googled to check it out.

I found some web pages - then I saw that they are associated with a well known hybridizer from Florida named Ted Petit.

They might bloom many months straight in Florida with excellent care, but I don't think they would do that here in Ohio. The best rebloomer I have is good to go on and off for 3 months.

Thanks, Gary - I learned about something new today!

So where can these 24/7 daylilies be obtained?

I did a little googling and found a few websites that sell these daylilies:

I think whoever is selling these daylilies has to be certified to sell them..

They are patented and you can't use them in any of your own hybridization program or to multiply for resale.

If they are as rust proof and carefree as indicated, they do fill a landscaping need..

Pat - It is landscaping for my front garden that I was thinking of. (Since that is seen by all the neighbors.) Sounds like they are all short scape and compact foliage plants. Some look quite nice, I must say. Supposed to multiply rather fast too. I might have to try to track some down....

Yes these 24/7 Daylilies are a good idea.
Wish I'd thought of them.

I'm rethinking some of my short plants now.

I agree that breeding with the goal of rust resistance in mind has been, and is, a great contribution to the future of daylilies on the part of hybridizers. So many have taken the researchers' guidance to heart, and with good progress. Always a welcome event when someone new joins their group and begins to fully document. Group hug

Yes, development of 24/7 daylilies is a contribution, Tina, in that it proves such plants can be developed.

Since they are patented, they cannot be sold or used in any program where any part could eventually be sold; they can be divided and given as gifts. We now know such plants are possible even if we can't use them in our own programs.

Yes! It's too bad we don't know what crosses he used to cultivate the rust resistant daylilies. But it does give hope that it is possible. Of course .... I'd like to try a couple of these daylilies in my yard to see if they really are rust resistant. My yard would be the true test!!!! I expect them to eventually be sold here locally because there are a lot of landscaping companies for the wealthy that would probably buy such daylilies. The other attribute of these is the very long bloom period. That interested me even more than the rust resistance!

Landscaping plants, yes, though I think that has been around for a while. Can we look to you to introduce the first fully documented and independently verified rust-resistant ones? Hurray! Group hug Thumbs up
