I came across Nicole's website. Didn't know if this had been posted yet, but ... WOW!!!!

Her tets and dips are really lovely! Are these photoshopped or really that perfect?

I am surprised at how many daylily growers/hybridizers are in Florida. Now I really don't understand why the standard plain yellow daylilies are the only ones I ever see around my area? I guess these nurseries ship all the "other" better daylilies out of state?
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

Nicole's daylily photos are pretty close to what you see and grow really well for us.
The reason you do not see a lot of their daylilies, is there not used for landscapeing because of the expense, those yellow daylilies are less than $5 each compared to $100-$300 each.

I agree with Fred. It is more economical to have fifty Stella's (or her look alike) than fifty "Jewel Of Jewels" unless you "got it like that". Rolling on the floor laughing
Of course the little ones also bloom for a long time and that's what make them so popular. I have a lot of the long bloomers in my front border. The only yellow ones are "Yellow Lollipop, Going Bananas and "Black Eyed Stella".
I don't have any of Nichole's yet, but, I am coveting a few. Rolling on the floor laughing

I ordered her fabulous BITES LIKE A THOUSAND TEETH, and I think Michele and Dot (Ladylovingdove) ordered at least that one and maybe more back when we got her brochure of introductions included with our Fall Daylily Journal.

Oh yes, and in the fall I purchased her new fall intro CODE OF HONOR, and I can't wait to see it in bloom!

She also sells on the Lily Auction (Ndl), and she sends huge plants with wonderful bonuses! Nicole is one of my favorites to purchase from.

My parents live on the intercoastal just off the melbourne causway, I have taken them many a daylily and they dont last more than a year or two, they just keep getting smaller and smaller. I dont know if its the heat or salt or what, but the plain yellow ones are really just about all ive gotten to grow down there.

You aren't giving them dormants, are you? Because that's what happens to dormants here. The evergreens and most of the semi-evergreens do well here, though.

Pam, salt doesn't hurt daylilies. I live a block from the beach and a block from the intercoastal. Even cars inside the garage get a coating of salt! Daylilies don't care!

My best guess?

(1) If they are planted near queen palms, palm roots will come to the surface to feed off any fertilizer used on the daylilies.
(2) If they are grown in the sand, no amount of fertilizer will work to make them thrive. That's why I grow in raised boxes.
(3) I agree with Betty, it sounds like those plants may have dormancy in them. Dormants will not live on the barrier island in Daytona nor will they live further south. They may not be classified as dormants--they may be classified as semi-evergreens. Even SEV's have too much dormancy for me--that's why I concentrate on researching parentage. If parent plants aren't provided (Salters usually don't) then you have no information to make a good decision. Crying

Take your pick. I've got through it all and now have lovely plants. You might pot up those daylilies and let them live in pots. That usually works unless they have dormancy!

I grow NICOLE'S AFTERGLOW. It has done alright for me. I think it would like me to move it to an area that got a bit more sun/rain but otherwise it has handled the weather here with ease.

Thank's for asking that question Teresa because right now I don't have any of hers and I would also wonder how they do in the north.

I just recently started collecting some of Nicole's daylilies, and the two that have bloomed for me so far are ALL HOOKED UP and SUN SCREAM -- and both are doing very well for me and I love 'em. I also have a few others that haven't bloomed for me yet.

ALL HOOKED UP


SUN SCREAM

Edit: I think SUN SCREAM is incredible -- and that's an untouched photo!

SUN SCREAM is one that I planted this fall. Doesn't seem too bothered by the winter yet. And it's been in the 20s or lower with no snow cover for about 5 days now.

Betty, in my trawling I remember you saying some where about a very big orange with good substance you had. I meant to write it down but never found it again. Could it have been SUN SCREAM?

It could have been, or it could have been PORT ORANGE too. I love both of those -- and ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL is another bright orange that I love. Can't think of any others at the moment. But SUN SCREAM is definitely a brilliant orange with great substance.

I can't recall an orange that hasn't done well in my garden. Maybe I will have to try that one.

I am not a big orange fan but I do love a good daylily with thick substance. I guess I never got past the ditch lily orange ones. My MIL gifted me my first ones and I always associate orange with them. I need to try a few new ones! My garden would be more rounded out, now I have a obsession with purples/lavenders!
