Is this what rebloom looks like? One scape full of buds coming up in a forest of dead scapes?

yeah, but can you post a picture of it? Also, you can remove the dead scapes

Here is a link to an old post that might help.

The thread "Pre-bloom and Instant Rebloom - with photos" in Daylilies forum

The cultivar is Outrageous. I took a pic, but will have to wait to post it.

Remove old scapes and dead leaves so the plants look fresh again. I have a few rebloomers, Fragrant Returns, Cabbage Flower, Your Choice, and last but not least, Stella de Oro always seems to be in bloom. Love them! Lovey dubby

I'm not worried about dead scapes ;>) just happy to see rebloom. I guess instant rebloom would be where there are still blooming scapes and another new one with buds is coming up? I see this a lot. Or is it still the first crop that is slow in putting up all scapes?

If you look at the link I posted above, there are photos in it that show the difference between pre-bloom and instant rebloom. "regular" rebloom would be when the first scape is all the way done, the plant will often rest a couple weeks or even a couple months, then send up another scape. With instant rebloom, the second scape is coming up while the first scape is still blooming. But, with pre-bloom, the scape comes up outside of the fan, in early spring, and it is thought to be a leftover rebloom scape from the fall before, that didn't have time to mature the last year.
