This was blooming today...

"Florida's Garden Light"
It was hanging and I had to pull the ruffles apart so there is a hole in the left bottom. There is a line of glitter that goes along the edge of the ruffles. I don't know if you can see it in the photo; it's in the upper right hand petal. I absolutely love that about it!! I have 3 clumps of this DL; 1 in a flower bed and 2 in pots. The other one in a pot that isn't blooming, the scape is way down in the foliage like only 6" high. Hopefully this isn't a habit of this cultivator, to bloom down in the foliage

A closer look at the edge. Hopefully you can see the glittery line.

This is going to sound like a dumb comment, but I have never seen a Daylily bloom south of Kentucky other than twenty years ago when I visited Marietta Gardens and Iron Gate . Not many big edges around back then. So, keep that in mind....

I did not know edges hung up in the south. I thought it was a northern thing that happened when we try to grow southern plants, or plants with big edges, because we often have very cold nights during bloom.

What conditions cause hanging up in the south? You don't have nights in the low 40's do you? Fred, you mention it will get better on rebloom....?

Well, we were having some cooler nights in the 50's so that could be why. Fred can answer better than me since I'm pretty new to daylilies.

Some large edges will hang up anywhere no matter what the weather, its a flaw within the daylily. It depends on how the edge is formed in the bud, it has to be folded just right in order to open without hanging. I had a seedling three years ago I wanted to register but I had to pull about 30% of the blooms open so I would not put it on the market. Cool nights does make the hanging worse so tinks flower may not hang up durning rebloom because of the warmer weather.

Another nice bloom tink.

Thanks, Fred. I guess I just assumed all these big edges opened well in the south. Having never been to Florida or other southern places during bloom, I don't have any frame of reference. I have only grown a couple of them here. They have not really been my **thing** -- Shelter Cove always opened flat, even after one night in the 30s. Didn't live through the winter though, unless I took it to a friends greenhouse.

Thanks for answering my question!

Juli may I ask what that beautiful bloom is in your Avatar.. It is so rich.

Fred good info as I assumed all of them would open well there because of the humidity. So I am assuming it has more to do with the cool nights then. I may have to put a heater in the beds.

Tradescantia virginiana, or spiderwort. It is a seedling a friend if mine gave me. It is a deep blue- violet. I love this one. Some I have seen are rather pale. I used to have quite a few different colors, but when I cut the garden waaaaayyyyy back this was the only one I kept. I have it in a couple places just in case something happens to one of them, since it is a seedling. Spiderworts tend to "travel" but this one is quite well behaved. It is happy to stay put.

It is a beauty. The color is so deep and clear it must be a sight en-mass. The color is why I did not recognize it as have seen the lighter ones in catalogs and thought they were pretty but no comparison to this.

Most of the daylilies I have I aquired last fall and this will be the first time I've actually seen them bloom.
