Yellow Bouquet is blooming today - March 18.
It's a pretty little double, but not a prolific bloomer. If it didn't provide some much needed color early in the season, I'd have disposed of it long ago.

I love the yellows, and it's a pretty double. Very nice!

I lost my Pearl Harbors last year so I ordered more and planted in the fall. They are full of scapes!

Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

And so it begins....I'm particularly partial to yellow daylilies, and the shade of yellow on Yellow Bouquet is so sunshiney yellow, that I'd be pleased to see it too........Pearl Harbor is another nice one....Waiting for more to come.......Maryl

These aren't the "First" blooms for 2015 (those were earlier this month, I believe, but I wasn't paying much attention), but "today" (March 18) I had blooms on 'Raspberry Banana Cheesecake' and 'Ballerina on Ice'. The latter did not fully open, but at least the two blooms gave some interest to the garden. I have one scape with buds on each of 'Steller's Jay', 'Full Moon Magic', and 'Because of You'; SJ looks like it might have FFO tomorrow or the day after.

Yellow Bouquet has always bloomed heavily for me and reblooms again also. It is the first to bloom-Memorial Day wkend here. John, maybe it doesn't like zone 9? I had it in zone 5.

I had Yellow Bouquet many years ago and like Frillylily commented, it did very well in my zone and it rebloomed here also.

It rebloomed here last year in 9a. However, it seems to put more energy into increasing like rabbits than it does into blooming.

It's good to see blooms from two of you. So pretty! Winter was too long for most of us, and it's great to see flowers again. All I have blooming here are daffodils.

I forgot to mention that 'One Fine Day' has also been blooming.



'Steller's Jay' did have FFO today, but someone, in his crazed defense of the garden (from critters great and small), apparently ran through the clump and broke the scape. Rolling my eyes.

Love beautiful daylilies with great rust resistant ratings, may have to add that one to my increasing want list, plus it is extra early it seems! Not many like that to be found.

The bud count and branching are not high (at least, not where I have it, where it gets a lot of shade), but if the drought here gets to a severe mandatory rationing state, this will be one of the last daylilies standing.

Confused It's actually a "pastel peach".

I was busy with the Ocala Area Daylilies plant sale and missed the blooming of my 1st seedling yesterday.

Went out to the garden at 6:30 pm and it was still blooming its little heart out.

My first bloom occurred yesterday, too. A ruffled pink seedling that wasn't very ruffled because it wasn't warm enough to be ruffled. Darn!

Here is my first spring bloom, a diploid:

X RAY (Nicole DeVito, 2014)


It was still in the 50's when it opened, and we're expected to reach the high 80's today.
