I love the look of a showy clump of daylilies and I think it draws the viewer to it like a magnet. Here are a few from my garden that I like. However, which daylilies do you think put on a show when it comes to a clump of them?

I don't have any pictures since I rarely take clump shots. But this year Little Red Warbler and Alice Faye have really put on a show! Neither have large blooms but I think they are very showy nonetheless. For early in the season, Butterscotch Ruffles never disappoints.

I rarely take clump shots either but Trahlyta makes a beautiful clump along with Siloam Merle Kent, Maxfield Parrish, Strawberry Candy, Primal Scream, & Ruffled Ballet, to name a few.

I only have 3 cultivars blooming here so far this year, running on memory these six came to mind....

Astral Voyager, wonderful hardy lavender.


Huckleberry Candy, one of my favorites from the "candy" series.


Jerry Hyatt, large blooms with distinctive clear colors.


Witch Hollow, excellent sunfast clear red.


Le Petit Saboteur, a mini bloom with wonderful branching.


I'm sure I'll think of more later....

Here are a few of my favorites.

Pumpkin Prince: It's not even what I'd call a clump yet (maybe four fans at the most). Imagine what it will look like when there are eight or more fans!!!

I have plenty of 'Apache Beacon', but let me check on 'Peppermint Somersault'. I broke up my clump for sales and I'm not sure how much is left. Both are carrying pods,

I don't take lots of clump shots because the multiple hybridizers in the family making crosses causes us not deadhead daily. Also having a couple thousand Daylilies causes us to only deadhead for visitors and occasionally as we get to it. All of you have lovely clump shots.

It's not a flopper. (I detest floppers.) It will, on occasion, have a few scapes that lean slightly, but not much. I have rid my daylily collection of ground-kissers, floppers, and those that lean more than about a 45 degree angle. If I have to pick it up to look at it, it's outta here.

Judy - Thank you. I have a very small clump of Fol de Rol and last year the scapes were very thin which made it difficult for the plant to hold up those gorgeous large blooms. I had to stake each scape if they weren't leaning against something to keep them from flopping over. When I transplanted it, I put it in a small bed right in front of my vertical herb garden so the scapes could lean against the vertical garden structure. Maybe this cultivar just needs time to strengthen and produce stronger scapes?
