A number of members have expressed interest in miniature daylilies. To me that includes any 3" in diameter or smaller. The smallest I have is one I think is Tiny Grit. The blooms are about 2.5" and height only 10". A really cute little bitone.

I only have a couple of minis. Could you give me some suggestions for heavy bloomers? Thanks,

I have many others that fit this category, but they were all new to my garden last year and did not bloom. Perhaps this spring.

Thanks, Laura
I need a mini to edge some other perennials. MING TOY looks nice.

Teresa, I do love this one. It is one of the ones I have had the longest in my garden. One thing I do want to let you know is that the scapes grow taller than 20" in my garden. I confess that I have not actually measured the scape to see just how much taller it grows, but in the clump shot I posted above you can see a Wild Horses flower in the background. Wild Horses is registered as 37" and you can see that the Ming Toy flowers are not much shorter than that.

Happy Returns is listed as just a little more than 3", but is less in my garden. It has the most repeat blooms of any daylily in my garden. When I cut back the first set of scapes, more are coming up. Not fancy at all, but one of the few continuous bloomers for me.
