Do you have a list of day lilies that are re-bloomers?

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome to ATP!

It is not as simple as that. Daylilies that rebloom in Florida or the deep south rarely rebloom further up north. First off we need to know your location. There are northern hybridizers that have worked very diligently on northern rebloomers for us folks not in the south. Daylilies by Karol Emmerich and Richard Norris immediately come to mind.

We do have such a list, but it's a huge list and so you should limit your selection by color or other attribute.

Go here:

http://garden.org/plants/group/daylilies/search/

and check off "Rebloom" under "Plant Traits" and then submit the form and you'll see the list. Thumbs up

Perhaps I can make it easier by giving you a list of day lilies and maybe you could tell me if they are re-bloomers. They are as follows:

Angel on My Shoulder
Best Kept Secret
Cameroon Night
Chicago Queen
Elmore James
Lavender Finesse
Lorna Atkins
Louise Mercer
Lullaby Baby
Marble Faun
Missouri Beauty
My Obsession
Purple Storm
Quick Results
Terms of Endearment

Thanks,

Which zone or state are you in? You can go to the AHS database and check out each daylily for yourself it will tell you if they rebloom. Although they may not rebloom for you depending which part of the country you live in, many do not rebloom in northern states that wil rebloom in southern states. http://www.daylilies.org/DaylilyDB/
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

I actually have more reblooms this year - with this cool wet summer, than in years past. Which kinda surprised me, because last year when it was exactly opposite - hot and dry and a very long growing season, I only had a few. Previous to that, none.

I take what I can get, if they rebloom - fantastic, if they don't - that's OK too.

I am not familiar with any on your list, sorry ~Jan

As far north as you are it might depend on how long your growing season is. A few of my rebloomers are Happy Returns, Your Choice, Stella de Oro and Cabbage Flower. Fragrant Returns is a really reliable rebloomer but it is not a registered daylily. Welcome!

Welcome! to ATP Liz!!!

Almost every daylily I have is listed by the hybridizer as one that will rebloom, and I've only had 1 so far that has done so. Stella de Oro has never even rebloomed for me, and that one seems to rebloom for just about everyone!

Except for last year, Stella has never rebloomed for me either. But, poor Stella is not planted in a really great location either (under a bush I need to trim). It's something I don't purchase for - but if it happens I am thriled, it's like a surprie.

Best In Class is reblooming right now with scapes that are full of buds.

Stella doesn't rebloom here but then again Stella doesn't do well here anyway. We do not get cold enough for it to do well and I hate that ALL the landscaping that places do with daylilies is with Stella because it performs very poorly here and has very few blooms; gives people a bad impression of daylilies ( IMHO ).

Reblooms I have had this year include: Outrageous (1 scape) and Green Eyes Wink, which pretty much blooms continuously for me. And then Purple Waters has produced a 3 bloom proliferation this year; I guess in gratitude for being identified after 20 years!

"Stella" that does not rebloom may not be true 'Stella de Oro'. I bought plants three times from garden centres, big box stores, etc., and general plant nurseries that were sold as Stella that never rebloomed. They were not Stella. I finally bought a true Stella from a specialist daylily seller. It reblooms. My wife did not know I had Stella and bought one labelled as Stella at a general plant nursery three years ago. It does not rebloom; it is not a true Stella (determined from characteristics by comparison with true Stella).

Rebloom is dependent on how the plant is grown as well as where it is grown. I am in Zone 4 with a growing season on the shorter side. I can grow a daylily cultivar so it never reblooms for me or I can treat it so that it grows at its best rate in my zone and it will rebloom for me. The simplest example is 'Mosel'. It never rebloomed for ten years. Then I started mulching it, weeding it, watering and fertilizing it. After one year of being treated to better growing conditions the fans had increased in size and it rebloomed. It reblooms every year if I treat it well.

From the opposite side I can take the Stella that reblooms and get it to no longer rebloom simply by not fertilizing it, not watering it and not dividing it.

I am not suggesting that all daylily cultivars can rebloom in all locations. If a cultivar requires a long growing season to rebloom for example, when grown well in Florida it blooms in April and then reblooms in October I will not be able to get it to rebloom in my location. I probably cannot get cultivars that bloom late to rebloom for me since they would never have enough time in my location.

These few are rebloomers here, but I neglect my plants in late July and August. Probably would get more rebloom if I watered consistently and fertilized. Sticking tongue out

My Stella that didn't rebloom was a true Stella. I divided it and gave some of it to a couple of neighbors, and it rebloomed for them. It just didn't like me! One neighbor planted hers in conditions that were pretty much identical to where it was in my yard, so that is the only thing I can come up with! I have one here at our new house, and it may be reblooming, but I've been gone so much since we moved that I haven't had time to really pay attention to it.
