Does anyone here grow this? It is registered at 59" tall and is a beautiful white. I have coveted it since I first saw it.

It was a new plant here last year so the scape height wasn't there this year but the blooms were. However, I saw a WONDERFUL clump of Isabelle Rose at Paul Owen's garden at this years National and thought, " If mine looks like this in the next couple of years, I'll be a very happy camper!"
Single bloom was taken here, clump is at Pauls.

Good morning to all!
When I saw the post asking about Isabelle Rose I could not help but respond as it is one of my all time favorite plants since the first time I saw it blooming in Ellen's garden. I don't know if I can say much negative about this daylily. It's hardy with no mulch in zone 5. It stands up straight and tall even when loaded with blooms. In my garden is stands about 4 1/2 feet tall. It is both pollen and pod fertile and I have been using it quite a bit in doing a little hybridizing. If you go over to the 2014 seedlings you can see some of my results with using Isabelle Rose. It makes a lovely clump and is stunning when in full bloom. Every flower opens well. This flower will always be in my garden!

Isabelle Rose is gorgeous. I like everything about it plus it has a large bud count. I will have to look for it to see if it is affordable.

Do you have to stake it or do the stems support the flowers?

I got it last year and it has done really well. The branching and budcount are very good.
The price will come down because it is a quick grower. It's still selling for close to $200.00 DF

Hello Christine and all,
I have grown Scandinavia in two different states now, NH and MA. It has been in this new garden going on 3 years this fall. Where I have it planted now is not in full sun. It does not get full sun until about 11am or so. It leans just a little bit but then it is also loaded with buds and pods. These plants are clumping up quite quickly and I have usually had at least 6 blooms open each day, today there were 7. I have never staked it. It just went through some very heavy rain yesterday also and looked great this morning.



Life is short, enjoy the ride!

Karin,

I'm glad you mentioned planting in full sun vs. less than full sun. Sometimes scapes on spiders and Unusual forms WILL lean toward the sun if they are planted in too much shade, at least in this climate. I personally have noticed this more on diploids with slender scapes. I try to grow anything that tends to "flop" in full sun which really helps. Of course, this might be less of a problem in a different climate. ( I'm in the Mid-Atlantic, on the edge of zones 6/7. )

Someone mentioned Lola Branham "flopping" for example. Here it grows in full sun - no problem.

I am glad you mentioned that, I certainly need to move some of my plants to more sun, they can barely hold up the blooms, and they lean way out reaching for the sunlight.
