Instantly reblooms every year here in 7a for a long bloom season.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Egyptian Queen'), adknative wrote:

I have had Egyptian Queen in the gardens for five years... reputed sibling to Wild Horses, and with a similar look: both top out between 3 and 3.5 feet, both have a very bold maroon eye on a 7-inch flower ... and, without knowing they were 'related' I ended up with both in my gardens.

Egyptian Queen''s background colour is more creamy (closer to an off-white) ... a paler 'yellow' than Wild Horses. It also has 4-way branching (vs. 3-way) and a slightly higher bud count. And while both are listed for zone 5, both do very well in my zone 3.

If they were twins, then I guess Egyptian Queen would be the 'quiet' twin... less fanfare, fewer off-spring, maybe a little less attention. But Egyptian Queen stands on her own merits and is an asset in any northern garden.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Easter Egg'), adknative wrote:

Easter Egg looks something like early traditions of pysanky (elaborate hand-painted Ukranian eggs), without the extreme detail - perhaps the reason for its name. I've grown 'Easter Egg' in the gardens for two years, and while it has bloomed very well for being so new, I do believe it is still becoming established and will be showier once it has another season or two.

That said, in zone 3 gardening, Easter Egg has had no rust, no disease, and no other problems. It's fragrant and the flowers are nearly the size of my open hand. It matches perfectly with its description: "cream self with a green throat and pattern lavender violet eye and matching picotee and gold edge." Even though its blooms are consistent every time, I still find myself looking twice to see that layered colour on the tightly ruffled edge. It's beautiful.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Earth Music'), adknative wrote:

I have now had Earth Music for five years - large flowers on about 2 1/5-foot scapes. For me it flowers in midseason. I had to move it last year, it was in an area where work needed to be on the property, but it did put out a couple of flowers in spite of being moved.

I find this daylily carefree: no rust, no diseases, no pests. I expect it will return to producing blooms well again this year, but time will tell.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Dynamite Returns'), adknative wrote:

Dynamite Returns aka Passionate Returns is a small-flowered daylily, but it more than makes up for the size of the bloom by how prolifically it flowers. It performs extremely well here in zone 3, disease-free and pest-free for the five years I have been growing it. Added plus: it's fragrant, too.

But the real winner is how very long it flowers for me here... it begins around the middle of July (fairly early, as my very earliest daylilies begin the last week of June) - but it continues well into August and, so long as we do not have a dry season, blooms profusely nearly to the end of summer. Not quite as close to 'everblooming' as Stella d'Oro, for example, but much longer than most.
