Anyone ever get good pollen from this one? I've had it 2 years and the pollen was always greasy or grainy.
I have been able to set pods.

If you want a daylily that does well in a pot, Glittering Gown is for you. You will need a fairly large pot, though (12"), as the fans are on the larger size. I feel guilty that I haven't found a spot in the garden for it even though I've had it for years, but it blooms beautifully in the pot and has been steadily increasing each year. The flowers are definitely cream in my garden and not yellow. This is definitely a daylily that can take a lot of stress and neglect.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Francis of Assisi'), bxncbx wrote:

I've had Francis of Assisi for years now. I love it and wanted to use it in crosses. Checking the database I saw that it was both pod and pollen fertile, so I was very disappointed that for years I was unable to either set a pod on it or any other plant using its pollen. But after years of trying I am finally able to do both. I'm not sure what has changed, but last year I had two pods and the year before I got my first pod. So far the pods have had very low numbers of seeds (1-5), but I'm happy to get any! The plant itself is healthy, blooms well, and is increasing. I haven't changed anything, so I'm not sure why it decided to finally start reproducing. So, if anyone else has issues with using FOA in their breeding program, just keep trying!

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Forsyth High Tech'), bxncbx wrote:

I've had Forsyth High Tech since 2015. It has bloomed for me each year, but I do not think it is particularly happy in my garden. It hasn't really increased in that time. I wish it would, because I love the flowers and it is both pod and pollen fertile for me. It is planted in a raised bed, but it gets way more sun than most daylilies in my garden (trying to recreate the North Carolina sunshine it came from). I'm hoping it is just taking its time settling in and that soon I'll start seeing some good growth.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Fairy Tale Pink'), bxncbx wrote:

Fairy Tale Pink is a very reliable bloomer. It even performs well in a small container. I had it in a narrow windowbox for years and that never stopped it from blooming. I moved it out of the windowbox a couple of years ago and it hasn't made the transition well. It still blooms but has lost fans and hasn't seemed as vigorous. I'm hoping that it does much better this year now that it has had a chance to settle in.
