I liked all that I saw and it would be very difficult to select just one or two.

All I can say is I wished I had a few thousand dollars. I'd buy every single one of their Fall 2016 Intros! The size of the blooms and the bud count on most of them were beyond impressive! Their intros seem to get better and better every year in every way! Drooling Drooling Drooling

Thanks for posting the link.

I can't say that I like the toothy or elaborately edged daylilies, but there were many beauties there.

Just went over it again today, of course the one I want is 200 bucks, and its the plainest. Guess I shall be watching for seeds. I am thrilled to see garden pictures, not catalog pictures only. They do have some some nice clear colors.

Wow, gorgeous flowers. Only thing is I doubt in my climate if I would get that kind of branching and bud count.

I've ordered Two Steps Forward, and Guy's Swan Song. Definitely some others I am thinking about.

Since I am not a frilly, toothy edge person, my choice would be Scarlet Glow-Handsome. If I knew it really would produce 65-70 buds per scape here in our garden, I would be tempted to buy it, but I have at least one listed high bud count daylily, and it has never made the 46 and over buds per scape.

Avedon - I agree with you. The counts and bloom size is so amazing! But in reality, would they perform with such vigor here in the south? I may acquire some of those cultivars in a few years (when the price is more in my range), but to pay that high price now and then be disappointed .... it is not in my budget for trialing.

Becky, still need to get you over there at bloom season. Worth the ride, and even tho its fun to see the new intros blooming, its fun to look and also they have many to buy that ar much lower in price. I hope I can make MECCA next year.

If I live close to you, Becky, I would love to drive you over there to see the daylilies together. Maybe the discounts would be enough to pay for the trip cost. Big Grin

Karen - Oh! Wouldn't that be FUN!!!! I would love to spend all 3 days over there going from hybridizer to hybridizer garden. I heard that Nicole gives a free daylily plant to anyone coming to see her garden during Mecca. I really do hope to have the pleasure of visiting the Mecca some day! On my wish list ..... Thumbs up

I am in northeastern Indiana, and I have wondered how I can possibly afford to attend the Florida Meca.

I do have two cousins who live in Florida, but it would be too presuming to expect either to host me.

It is something to think about.

Plants grown in an environment with ideal garden conditions, such as daily water infused with fertilizer, will have these statistics with regard to bud count and branching. IMHO, to expect those same stats in a regular garden where most of us do not ( and cannot) fertilize and water daily, is unrealistic. In my garden, the blooms are pretty, but the bloom size is somewhat smaller and the bud count is lower. The Leek like fans also diminish in size as they adjust to normal garden conditions. JMHO
