This one is not registered as a "true spider" but a UF. It grows so well for me. I will post a flower, then another shot showing branching.

Dottie's one of my very favorite hybridizers. She actually got me started into daylily addiction years and years ago.

This is one of hers that I rarely see photos of --- Turkey Trot

That's wonderful, too. I only have a handful of hers but always like her hybrids.

When I first started in daylilies I have to admit I did not care for Spider or UF's at all. But suddenly late 2008 they really started to appeal to me. It will be nice to be able to find photos and discussion about them here in one spot!

The first one I added was Creature of The Night...

HI, all! I made it finally!

I am with you Nanny, I didn't care for spiders at all, but I do now, and I really like the UF.
Someone asked about finding a source for spiders. I don't know of a nursery that sells ONLY spiders, if that what she meant?
I think most sellers have a variety with spiders included.

Hi all
I think spiders grow on you, I did not really like them much at all a few years back. I do love the older spiders . and tend to lend towards the pinks and dk purples.

The spiders and UF's are what made me fall in love with daylilies in the first place. I've sense expanded my taste to include other forms, but the spiders and Uf's remain my favorites.

Oh me too boojum. And would you believe that was a first year bloom and still in a pot, no less? Can't wait to see what it does this year.

This is ALDERSGATE Temple 2005 (dip) the largest daylily we grow. Its registered at 16 inchs but has a lot of 18 and 20 inch blooms. The largest I have seen is 24 inchs. I now have a tet conversion that Dan Trimmer did for me and will see seedlings bloom from it this year.

I had no idea they could get that large. Wow. I bet that's really impressive in the garden.

Love the spiders and most UF's but those that look like RoundUp mist hit them are a bit too much for me LOL
