I drove over to Ozark today and picked up my daylily order. Very pleased with the plants. Enjoyed the visit with the owners and plan to return when the daylilies are in bloom later in the year. The plants were very healthy looking and just freshly dug. Being they are just a few miles away I figure what grows well there should do pretty good here.

If you look closely at the roots on all the plants, you will notice that none of them are chopped off. The owner told me they dig the fans then separate them. The will dig an entire clump if necessary separate the selected fans then replant the clump. It certainly makes for nice fans to plant, and it does not seem to harm the rest of the plant, they all looked very healthy. I wonder how much it slows the growth of the original plant?

This is a list of the plants:
1. Alabama Jubilee 2. Jedi Breda Spann 3. Passion For Red 4. Rainbow Candy 5. Ransom Note 6. Spacecoast Tiny Perfection 7. Red Volunteer 8. Blue Moon Rising 9. Missouri Memories 10. Super Purple 11. Orange Velvet 12. Night Wings 13. Siloam Double Classic 14. Nagasaki 15. Malaysian Monarch 16. All Fired Up 17. Bonnie Corley
18. Palladian Pink 19. Elizabeth Salter 20. Fooled Me 21. Primal Scream 22. South Sea Enchantment
I was told Alabama Jubilee would probably be the fastest to multiply and Primal Scream would probably be the slowest in this area. They were all rated at least resistant to rust.
I added a good handful of Alfalfa pellets for each plant then mulched good with oak leaves and grass clippings, looks good I think. I call this my rust resistant daylily bed, most of the time I mix my plants but I decided to do this one with just daylilies. I have one other bed with just daylilies, but most of them are going to be dug up and moved after they bloom and I see what they are.

That was nice of them. I really, really hate it when a grower shoves a shovel through a clump to get me a couple of fans.

Nice looking divisions!

Larry, I doubt the parent plants are stunted much (if at all), especially this early in the season. I dug up three clumps and pulled a few divisions today. The divisions were an afterthought. I'd noticed some soil compaction and just wanted to take an early opportunity aerate and amend the soil a little to give the new roots plenty of wiggle room. Not something I do for every plant in the garden but I feel it benefits the daylilies. Perhaps not? I do it anyway, lol. Big Grin

I've also started collecting only those daylilies that have good rust resistance.
Rust magnets are a total pain.
It would be nice if a rust rating could be done on newer plants since most rust ratings have been done only on the older ones.

Larry and Arlene - Good for both of you to grow daylilies that are resistant to rust! I am trying to add more of them to my garden, but I typically grow mainly seedlings ... so I never know whether it will be rust resistant or not. The Jedi Brenda Spann is a beauty! Thumbs up

Larry, when Jedi Brenda gets settled in, you are going to be amazed at her bud count. I'm looking at records from 2013 and Jedi Brenda bloomed from April 18 to July 29. She had scapes with 4 way, 31 buds; 3 way, 26 buds; 3 way 28 buds, etc. Just an excellent cultivar! Early in the season she might bloom low in the foliage, but that goes away fairly quickly. She clumps up well, too.

florange,
Thanks for that info, that is the kind of daylilies I am looking for in my garden. I actually did a little research and planning before ordering my last few daylily orders (but I get distracted easily). I wanted daylilies that were rust resistant primarily, ones that formed nice clumps, and ones with lots of blooms for a long period of time.
Seems like Jedi Brenda Spann fits the bill.

Becky, older daylilies that are evergreen would still be better for you than getting sev/dormant seeds and seedlings. At least with plants you know what you are getting. I know it's exciting to get blooms that are surprises, but if they don't bloom over a long season and live for a long time, why spend water and fertilizer on them. I've had Jedi Brenda (1990) in my garden for the last 9 years, and she always puts on a show. The clump is huge. I divide it every 2-3 yr to keep her healthy, but then the people who get the divisions also have something they can enjoy for a long time.

Arlene - You may be right. Most of my seedlings though do appear to be evergreens and semi-ev. I have over 300 in my yard. I could never consider spending even a fraction of what it might cost for actual named and registered plants. That is the other reason I grow seeds/seedlings. But last year, I did get 3 named/registered cultivars very cheap from a member here. One bloomed today and I loved it. Unfortunately, that cultivar is not resistant to rust here. Your Jedi sounds like a daylily I might be interested in down the road.

Larry, how did your cultivars from In the Neighborhood perform this season? Did any of them bloom this spring? I'm thinking about placing a fall order from them.

I did not lose any of the plants, they have all done well with one exception. It was doing fine until the really hot dry weather hit, 'Blue Moon Rising" did not bloom and has really diminished in size till now it is very frail (summer dormancy) is what I have attributed it too.
I would say about half bloomed and about half did not.
'Siloam Double Classic' did bloom, but the blooms were mal-formed and there were very few of them.
'Primal Scream' had nice full sized blooms. 'Alabama Jubilee', 'Red Volunteer' 'Nagasaki', 'Bonnie Corley', 'Fooled Me', all bloomed and have grown nicely. As far as blooms I think 'Super Purple" and 'South Sea Enchantment' and 'Orange Velvet' had the most blooms.
Photos Just taken today:
This is my very frail 'Blue Moon Rising',

'South Sea Enchantment' and 'Primal Scream' are more typical of how the plants look.

This is a photo of the two rows of plants I bought from In The Neighborhood Daylilies, just down to the second red Salvia by the Crape Myrtle. Past that over near the cold frame are some seedlings and some small transplants that have grown up this summer.

I was well pleased with my order, the plants were all a nice size (not super size) but why some bloomed and some did not I don't know. I received some plants from G. H. wild at about the same time, they were much smaller, but all of them but one bloomed.

Arlene, that is a beauty. Makes me think of Barbara Mitchell but a much nicer shade of pink.
