I thought I would start a thread for "re-blooming" registered cultivars. Re-bloom is a trait that I find highly desirable in a daylily!

Here are two (so far) of mine that are currently re-blooming:

Betty Warren Wood (producing a poly as first bloom on the re-bloom scape):

Would love to see what cultivars are re-blooming for you!

With the abundant rainfall we had during this past season (I only had to water twice), I saw rebloom on more cultivars this year than I have in the past 15 years combined. I would guesstimate that of all cultivars in my garden that are registered as rebloomers, and have been in the ground longer than one season, I had rebloom on 85%. I have way too many to list but rebloom been amazing and most pleasing.

Some bloomed and are still blooming on their SECOND set of rebloom scapes. Off the top of my heard are 'As Time Goes By', 'Boundless Beauty', 'Color Flash', 'Winter Romance', 'Buddy's Red Head', and 'Golden Ladies'.

A THIRD set of rebloom scapes has been produced on 'Boundless Beauty' and 'Buddy's Red Head'.

Judy - Thank you for your post! Amazing that you are getting 3rd re-blooms! Wow! I didn't know that was possible with any except Stella d Oro.

Isn't it amazing what rain can do?! Watering with well water does NOT have the same affect, unfortunately, as acid rain. Rolling my eyes.

I agree with Judy best year ever for reblooms! Although I would love rebloom due to heat I do not get rebloom. I get heat dormancy. But the weather this year caused rebloom. Always Afternoon, Aubrey Johnson,Bridgeton Inspiration, Bridgeton Invention, Daring Deception, Happy Returns, Lavender Vista, Leebea Orange Crush, Majestic Hue, Millie Schlumpf, MOONLIT MASQUERADE --3 times, and Will Return and Final Touch did bud building. Have a joyful day!

These blooms are all on rebloom scapes today for 'Banshee Love Call':
Thumb of 2016-06-26/needrain/2907ec
'Lillian's Vapor Trail' has finished with its rebloom; 'Orange You Clever' has a few more buds to bloom; 'Whip City Dapper Dan', 'Parade of Peacocks', 'Coral Crab' (a first for this one), and 'Tusk' all have rebloom scapes.

If seedlings count, there are three that have rebloom scapes. This one pleased visitors more than myself, but it's undeniably gotten better as the season progressed. (Dizzy Damselfly X French Twist):
Thumb of 2016-06-26/needrain/8eb600

And this is the first rebloom stalk blooming for (Dizzy Damselfly X Art Gallery Etching) which has decided to do odd things. Today it's hinting at teeth and yesterday there was a petaloid or something in the bloom. There's a third scape that is growing that hasn't bloomed yet so it will be interesting to see what it produces with the ever increasing heat here. I think it's unlikely that I'll ever like the bloom, but I do like the quantity of blooms and it's interesting to see what is showing up. Can you see the teeth-like growth? And it raises the question of what is in the parents that are producing the extras:
Thumb of 2016-06-26/needrain/9bdfff

The other seedling with a rebloom scape is (Buddy's Khloe X French Twist). As the temperatures are getting hotter, the bloom has slimmed down a bit, so it will be interesting to see what the rebloom scape gives compared to the first scape.

Mike,

Is your 'Winter Romance' showing a double edge or is that an illusion from the way the light is falling on the bloom?

I have what appears to be an instant rebloom scape on Beautiful Edgings. It is now starting to produce blooms while the original scape has not finished blooming.

I am very encouraged by the reports that show people think the above average amount of rainfall earlier in the year is the main suspected reason for the above average rebloom this season. I would be hard pressed to name a single cultivar that has bloomed this season and that has not a at least had one cycle of rebloom. I still have a few plants that have yet to bloom the first time, so naturally I would not expect rebloom from them, but there is still time left for a few of them. A few outstanding plants for me so far this season have been:
South Seas
South Sea Enchantment
Mary's Gold
Orange Velvet
Optical Delight
Royal Eventide (I am hoping the looks of the bloom will grow on me) the performance of the plant has been super.
Gypsy Rose Lee
My red NOID
Really, off hand I can't think of anything (other than a few that have just recently bloomed for the first time)that have not had rebloom (not just a couple of flowers) but really nice displays of rebloom.
I certainly have never experienced rebloom of such proportions until this year! The reason I am so excited that people are contributing the cause of the impressive rebloom this season to the rain is that I now have most of my named cultivars planted in a bog, so I am hoping that even in years of less rain I will still get the great rebloom. I did have a lot of concern about planting in the boggy area, but after this year with the most rain I can remember in the early part of the season and the performance of the plants I am really encouraged that it was the right thing to do. Even now while the rest of the garden is dry as a bone in many places even with trying to water, the bog is still very wet. I will admit being so boggy certainly has it's drawbacks, very inconvenient working in muck, no one wants to stroll though my garden, etc.

Becky, I think you are going to find that rebloom often depends on temperatures and amount of rain. We have been very dry and rebloom has been sparse in my garden, plus the plants look like they have been blow torched. When the spring is wet and cooler temperatures linger, every daylily I have reblooms 2-4 times. This has been the third year in a row that the daylilies have suffered with excessive heat and little rain. This fall I will empty 2 of my 6 boxes and replace the daylilies with something else. I've had daylilies for the past 40 years, I am just tired of dealing with them.

I still can't understand what rebloom means. It's too hard for me to get it. I have some plant with two scapes in a fan (one in the middle, one on the side), ready to bloom buds and some much younger.. I'm giving it up! *Blush*

Don't be discouraged, you are by far not the only one to get a little confused on rebloom. The AHS definition of rebloom to me certainly leaves a lot unexplained...I would love to see a much more detailed explanation and it would be nice if the explanation showed examples of each type of rebloom.
It helps me to think of roses and how they send up a first "flush" of blooms, then rest and send out another "flush" of blooms. So, daylilies send up a first flush of scapes, they bloom, then the plant rests for a period and later sends up a second flush of scapes, etc. That is one type of rebloom.
Some daylilies send up a scape and the first buds bloom and when the first buds have finished blooming new buds develop further up on the same scape (bud building). These new buds tend to put on much less of a show, (one flower at a time) but do extend the season by showing some bloom over a long period of time.
Then there is "instant rebloom" when the daylily sends up a first flush of scapes and blooms, and before the first series of scapes can finish blooming the daylily produces new scapes that start blooming. This process may continue for some time, and I think that is what is referred to as continuous rebloom.
That is about the best I can explain rebloom as I understand it.
I do have varieties in my garden that demonstrate at least one of each of the above mentioned types of rebloom.
'Optical Delight' was one of the first daylilies in my garden to bloom this season, and it is still blooming !
'Ming Porcelain' had the earliest blooms on what I would consider to be a pre-bloom scape, and now it is on its second set of rebloom scapes.
I find it easier to understand rebloom if I think of it mainly as a series of repeating blooms or a period or a series of new scapes being displayed.

I don't think moving a plant would be any reason not to consider the next set of blooms as rebloom, that is what I would consider it to be.
The 'All Fired Up' never stopped blooming? So would we consider that a series of rebloom scapes or continuous rebloom? I guess the distinction would be if there was any period ( a day, a week: don't know what the time limit would be) when it was not in bloom.

I went out and took some photos with this thread in mind this morning:
Here is a simple example of rebloom: You can see the expired scape, you can see a scape with the buds and you can see a new emerging scape.
'Blonde Is Beautiful'"
Thumb of 2016-07-02/Seedfork/c02556
Thumb of 2016-07-02/Seedfork/222f51
Here is an example of what is called bud building on a known budbuilder:
Crimson Pirate:
You can see the spiral pattern up the scape, at the tip of the scape you can see the bloom, and right below the bloom you can see the next bud sometimes two getting ready to replace the last flower when it falls away.Not the best example of the spiral pattern, but you can detect it, often it is much more pronounced that this example.
Thumb of 2016-07-02/Seedfork/f50f8f
Thumb of 2016-07-02/Seedfork/564f5a

This plant had a very early scape (the pre bloom scape mentioned above) it looked like it was growing out of the ground next to the plant. Then it produced a crop of rebloom scapes (you can see the dying scapes) now it is blooming on a second set of rebloom scapes, and you can see the a new scape developing down in the foliage.

Oh, I wanted to add that in the photos you certainly don't see all the scapes the plants have produced. At the beginning of the year my plan was to let the old scapes stay till the end of the season then collect them and make notations about bud count, scape height, etc. However, that did not work out so well. Some scapes just seemed to get lost in the day to day deadheading procedure, others had rust and had to be removed, then as the season progressed the number of dead and dying scapes became an eyesore, and I started pulling them and tossing them. It would have become almost a full time job trying to keep up with them all. Plus I was gone for a month and just got really behind. Here is a photo of one of the above clumps of 'Crimson Pirate' with some dead scapes still left in it. If you enlarge the photo you can see how distracting the dead scapes can be. I have recently taken some photos later to find how distracting dead scapes can be in a photo also.

I really like that 'Swirling Spider', but the data base gave no bud count or branching info.
But your photo added to the database shows how important that type of photo can be. I really love it when looking at a cultivar in the database and so many of the photos show multiple blooms and nice clumps!
