So I have been planting some things, but they were not ID'd when I did so now they are blooming and I am locating things of course willy nilly all over and short and tall all together and things that clash... So I am pairing some stuff up on paper/photos for when it cools this fall, I can move them around where I want them more.

Bold Move is sometimes splotchy for me (often actually) so I can't decide if I want to keep it or not.
I have Chief Four Fingers, new to me this year and every bloom has been a splotchy mess so far Thumbs down Form is nice, poly every time, and the color is deep and pretty, just splotchy.

I do think the dark color of Bold Move looks pretty w the other. It looks nice with Velvet Eyes too.
I tried it with Crimson Pirate but it was too bright and the spidery/star form didn't look as well.

The first two combo's are my favorites. I am a green throat kind of gal. But there is nothing wrong with any of the other combo's. That is the wonderful thing about daylilies they always look good! Good idea to get your garden moves planned now. I keep saying I am going to get my moves down on paper. You have inspired me to start--tomorrow! Have a joy filled week!

Very nice combos. I especially like the last two with the companion plants, they all cause each other to pop. Is the bluey purple a salvia or a beard tongue? You have a good eye for color and healthy plants. May joy rain down on you and yours!

Sharon the purple is cat mint (walkers low), I love the smell of it.

Lisa, doesn't the catmint invasively take over choking others out<? mine did. I had to get rid of it and I really liked it.

Like the Azure wings and licorice Twist together


I do like green throats, the orange is ok but it depends on the color it is with and I don't mind the yellow throats but they don't stand out to me like the apple/lime of the green ones.
I do like the green throats with the red petals.
I had Christmas Is which has a really lime throat w red but it's performance was so poor I finally threw it out.

Frillylily-- nice landscape design, and the plants are well placed. Gorgeous!

Lisa I also would like to know how invasive and if it is not invasive does yours die back each winter. Sometimes I find some plants more invasive here if they have a longer growing season and colder zones do not have a problem with them. Trying to judge because I think it is nice. Thanks for your help.

I have one plant of the walkers low that I have had for 5 years. It does dies back each winter. It does "sprawl" some but as it grows out each spring I look at how large the clump is as it emerges and this is the first year that I dug a little back ( maybe 6 inches in one side of the clump). After blooms fade, I trim it back..this may be why it is staying in one clump?? I absolutely love the smell when you brush by it! Last year I purchased a dwarf variety that is in the front yard and very small. It did not do as well returning from dormancy and is just now starting to bloom.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Lisa-- Thank you for the info. I may keep that in mind to try next year. I have 3 salvias that I like will keep no matter what (may night, mystic spires, and indigo spires). Mystic and indigo are water hogs and not crazy about sun bathing. Maybe this would work in some different spots.

I would also like to ask is there a tutorial that explains how to:
Tag someone in the message with the @
Add a link to the database like you did with catmint (so helpful when that is done)
Add pictures from database
Add pictures from home
I see where periodically someone asks and they are given an answer, but if I could look and see how to do it first and ask only if I have a problem that would be great. Thank you so much for your patience. Happiness is ours today if we only smile. Big Grin

Sharon,

Tagging someone is as easy as @Altheabyanothername. Use the @ symbol, then the member ID (not their name unless the two are the same). No spaces between the symbol and member, but one space after the member ID.

Don't know.

If you mean add a photograph from the database to a post, go to the database entry of the plant you want. I will use SDB Iris 'Blue Oasis' as the example, here. Once in the entry, click on the image you want to post to the thread. The last line of text just above the image will be the BB Code, then a string of characters. Copy that string including the leading and ending brackets. Paste to your post and voilĂ .
This is the code for one of my images. Left the end bracket off so you could see what I am talking about, then put the whole string in so you could see the image.

To add images from home to the database: go to the plant entry. To the left will be a link that says Upload a photo. Click it and follow the steps.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
