Background history:

'Walt Reinke' is a dormant diploid introduced in 2000 by Bill Reinke. Bill and his wife, Joyce, own and hybridize at Stephens Lane Garden in Bells, Tennessee. You can find out more about them at their website:

Juli (daylily) also started a hybridizer thread about Bill and Joyce Reinke:
The thread "ATP Series: The Daylilies of Bill and Joyce Reinke" in Daylilies forum

Walt Reinke is a Unusual Form - Crispate that blooms mid-season to late.

I have this cultivar! Thumbs up Thumbs up

As I only started growing (dare I say 'collecting'? Rolling on the floor laughing ) Daylilies this year my plants are still very young and not really settled yet.
Walt Reinke was my first UF and I was rather disgruntled when I received the plants...
They were cut very short and sprigly Thumbs down

But within 2 weeks the foliage started growing

and, even though it still didn't look like much, 3 weeks later they showed nice, fat, buds Lovey dubby

(sorry about the terrible photo, I took it because of the foliage, not the buds..)

First couple of flowers looked a bit 'off',

but after that they started looking better and better!

Foliage nor scapes were much higher than 50cm, but I suppose that was because the plants were not mature, nor settled in.
Also the place where I had put them was not ideal: right next to a big Syringa vulgaris tree Thumbs down
so too much shade and perhaps not enough water.. Crying

Plants were planted June 4th, I had 3 scapes with a total of 19 flowers, first flower on July 12th, last on July 26th.

I am content with how it did this first summer, trusting that Walt Reinke will perform better next year Thumbs up
