Hello everybody...

Well I have this wonderful idea or what I think is a wonderful idea Whistling ,
to start an Native American Heritage bed and have a few daylilies picked out to place in it when I can. Below I have listed some of my choices but I am very interested in some of your favorites with either Native American names or what you would think would be native influence.

Buffalo Thunder
Apache Uprising
Cherokee Vision
Cherokee Beauty
Cherokee Heritage
Cherokee Star
Cheyenne Bride
Chokecherry Mountain
Dream Catcher
Indian Sky
Lakota
Lakota Spring
Native Pride
Navajo Blanket
Wyoming Wildfire

Have a great day. I tip my hat to you.

Great idea! Hybridizer Dale Hensley has a lot of Native American names for his daylilies. You might want to add some of those.

Cherokee Bonfire
Cherokee Choices
Cherokee Fables
Cherokee Syllable
Native Reflection
Navajo Code
Tahlequah Flame
Weeping Nation
Wowee Cherokee

Curt Hanson has Navajo Warrior, which I just added.

Navajo Talisman is one of my favorite UFs.

I'm part Cherokee, and have always thought it would be fun to collect all of the Cherokee daylilies. Just haven't made a dent in the list yet!

I do have Cherokee Star, which I love.


Some of the other Native related ones that I have are...

Stan - Yes, Blueridge sells Hensley's daylilies. Here's Tahlequah Flame. It blooms very late, so it would be a great addition to your bed.

I was looking the other night and I never could find an updated price listing. All I could come up with was a 2014 listing.

What a great idea! I have a small percentage of Blackfoot Indian in me (I'm a Heinz 57 myself! Whistling Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! ). Love this idea and there sure are some dynamite plants to use for an Indian theme.

I live on the Nez Perce reservation, and need to see if there are any daylilies named after them! If there aren't, I need to fix that!

I saw that earlier, Stan! It is a recent intro, so hopefully I can find one for sale that doesn't break the bank. Here is the picture at the AHS site.

Saw some Iris with Nez Perce in the name too. Sadly, there aren't any pictures of any of them. They were all registered a long time ago, so I doubt that they are still around.

Stan, if you are in an area of Florida in which Iris can grow, there are many, many Native American named beardeds.



Daylilies from my yard this year:
