Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Apple Tart') on February 20, blue23rose wrote:

H. Apple Tart has been in my garden since 2008, has multiplied very well. Blooming in July, its color holds up pretty good on hot summer days, turning from an rich red to a orange. I have not seen rebloom on it at all, but the scapes have nicely spaced 3-way branching with about 20 blooms that stand well above the foliage. I have never seen rust on it.

Although registered as a dormant, my potted Comic Strip acts more like a semi-evergreen. This explains why it hasn't multiplied well for me. Comic Strip did produce a proliferation in 2017 but it did not survive.

Although registered as a semi-evergreen, Carousel Princess acts as a dormant daylily in my northern garden.

Although registered as a dormant, this cultivar acts as a semi-evergreen for me in my northern garden. This would explain why it has not multiplied well in my garden as typically only dormant cultivars do well for me.

Love this daylily. Very hardy, beautiful blooms. Great accompaniment to the yellow Mount Zion, they make a great duo.

This is such a good flower. It has very heavy substance and near perfect blooms every time. Its bloom season is long and there are plenty of buds. I've begun to do crosses, and I got an excellent child from it [at least the first year was good] crossed with Fiordiligi.

Good late bloomer. It has black shading on the red that the camera can never catch.

Name comes from a fishing lure made by the Coldwater Bait Company, Coldwater Michigan.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Wedding Band') on December 17, jrbales wrote:

While it really does have beautiful blooms, "Wedding Band" in my beds has proved to be a total "rust bucket" for two years in a row, far more susceptible to rust than the other cultivars around it. I have it in two different beds, one on the east side of the house, the other on the west side, and the plants are equally diseased. Right now the foliage is ugly and covered with heavy infestations of rust. I hate to even consider it, but it may have to be culled. The only good thing is that I'm finding which cultivars around them seem to be less susceptible!

This is a great hem. In my garden, it's always a med/dark rose colour. It shows no rust. It bloomed early, then before the last buds finished it shot up another scape. Opens perfectly and lasts well in the sun. Also does fairly well in very heavy rain.
Another attribute is that it is often half open for a day looking deep rose. Then the following day it is often fully recurved as per my pics.

Outstanding in every way, great parent and extremely fertile both ways. I highly recommend this plant if you work with dip patterns. Also a great garden plant.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'My Friend Mary Jane') on November 4, TsFlowers wrote:

Until I received a sweet thumbs up from a user, I didn't know anyone who posted here had purchased the daylily. And to that user, I am hoping that My Friend Mary Jane straightens up for you. She should look much better. However, it's nice to know that you are in zone 8b. I originally thought that the daylily was a semi-evergreen, while now I believe it is actually dormant. So it would be good to follow how the daylily does in zone 8b. Thanks!

This plant is showing Dark Prince (TET) as one of the parents and is listed as a Diploid???

In my garden OS is a glowing golden yellow. And it has beautiful velvety substance. Outstanding. It can sometimes do petaloids and polys.

Stunning color in the morning, but blooms fade by the time I come home from work around 4:30. Get your pictures before the sun beats them to death.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Third Witch') on October 5, csandt wrote:

In its first season in my garden, Third Witch bloomed from June 26 through August 14. It is lovely, especially planted near yellow-green daylilies that complement its green throat.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Smoky Mountain Autumn') on October 4, BradKY wrote:

One of my favorite daylilies; such a great blend of colors. Usually a coral-rose blend. It can vary, but the picture I posted is the most common color combination that I get, and my favorite.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Beat the Barons') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

Very pretty little daylily which despite being evergreen thrives in a British climate. Was one of the first daylilies I bought and it was the picture of this variety in a gardening magazine that started my interest in daylilies.

Beautiful creamy yellow and deep dusky red eye.

Easy grower and laughs off wet and windy weather. Love it!

One of only a handful of Lambertsons that I own as they generally don't do that well in my climate. This is one of the few exceptions as it always does well and thrives with little attention. A good increaser, flowers well but the flowers can sometimes get crowded on the scape.

The early flowers are almost identical to Blue-Eyed Butterfly, also by Lambertson, but the later flowers have a more elaborate eye.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Little Fat Cat') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

Another of my favourite little ones. Lovely rich cream with lovely shape and substance and beautiful diamond dusting. Nice tall scapes and flowers for a long time.

Has no problem with British cold, wet and windy weather and always opens well even in long periods without sunshine. Always beautiful.

Pollen fertile but can't get pods on it here.
