|I am looking for some tiny daylilies for a rock garden a the the entrance to my driveway. I would like it if the scapes were not much taller that the plant. I need some suggestions and sources.|

|Look at Floyd Cove's offerings.
I have Little Dunkin and Little Night Jewel, both of which are tiny, and the scapes aren't very high.
I think their height is listed at 17", but that would be under optimum conditions.

|If you like the yellow-orange-red range (based on the pictures in your profile...) you might try these at mostly under 10-16" with < 3" blooms...
To find others, you can do a quick search in the daylily database at http://garden.org/plants/group/daylilies/search/ and that can help to narrow the search if you are in a warmer zone and are looking for evergreens (a lot of minis are dormants) or know hybridizers that specialize/d in minis (siloam, sweet seneca, etc). Also doing a word-search in the main daylily listings at The Daylilies Database can bring up a lot of options (key words: little, tiny, small...).
To see some handy sources, just click all the way through on a database picture to see if it carries a link to a site; many do. Otherwise, google, http://www.TheDaylilyAddict.com, or http://daylily.com/cgi-bin/auction.cgi might all be possible starting points in a search.

|PIXIE PLAYTHING - a nice mini - 16" scape

|Wow, that does look tiny, glad your fingers were in the pic so we could actually tell the size, otherwise I would not have been able to tell it was not full sized.
I noticed the data base does not want hands or feet in the photos, but in this case it is a big plus.

|Pixie Pleasure(purple) has a taller scape than the others, 21" bloom 2.5"
Irish Elf(yellow) 14" scape with 2.25" flowers.
You Angel You is normally doubled but not this time, 15" scape 2" bloom
The large yellow that the minis are resting on is 8" Dancing Lions. The wheelbarrow is about 6" long, excluding the handles.
Can't give you sources as these were bought many yrs ago.
