I would caution anyone in the north (I am z 5a) against purchasing this in the fall. I purchased a double fan in the fall of 2017 from a Ohio grower, and it dwindled to a fragile single fan by spring. It has survived, but barely.

Wonderful plant and one of Judy's rare dips. Does fantastic in my zone 5a garden. Easily fertile both ways. I love it!
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Beautiful Edgings') on August 21, mystlw wrote:

This daylily is truly beautiful. I've had it for two years now, and while it doesn't multiply quickly, it really stood out this year. After a winter of several sub-zero periods, and during a summer of multiple heatwaves, most of my cultivars developed shorter scapes and fewer flowers. This was the one exception! The scapes grew to about 4 ft., and it bloomed for weeks.
I don't know why it did so amazingly well while the others around it struggled, but it was the best part of this less-than-stellar season.

This daylily, when crossed with Old Time Italian, produces very good looking offspring. I got some seeds on the LA with this cross, WILLOW DEAN SMITH x OLD TIME ITALIAN. The seeds gave me a couple of seedlings that have the nice look of Willow Dean Smith.

This bloomed a lot for me this year in spite of drought conditions and very high temps for weeks on end. I did supplement water. It has a strong fragrance, every bloom is perfect, and double, and it is not diamond dusted.

Puts up new scapes in early August.

Blooms a long time for me, puts up new scapes and keeps blooming .

Woman at the Well blooms profusely here in zone 4B. She is throwing up a new bloomscape August 9, but the other scapes are done blooming. Love this plant. Planning to move it to a spot where it can be better appreciated.

My clump has been planted here for 3 years and had a bud count of 8 for me this year, but we did have a dry year. Maybe it will do better next summer.

Comment: Very slow to acclimate for me (zone 7b) but once it did, it thrived.
The fans I bought online were small and two of the three fans died the next spring. Healthier plants might grow faster. Bought in September 2015, started growing well in 2017, didn't bloom until 2018. Had several fans and plenty of nice blooms at that time.

Nice wide branching and a sweet fragrance, very graceful blooms.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis '120th Anniversary') on July 18, Frillylily wrote:

This plant was offered as a free gift plant with the first every so many orders for the year of Wild's 120th anniversary. It was never for sale by Wild's that I am aware of, and I have never seen it for sale anywhere since. I suppose an odd plant here or there may be offered up occasionally by a home gardener, but never any nurseries. It has beautiful blooms, but I have grown it at two addresses now, both in southern MO and neither time has it performed well for me. The bud count was about 20 for me, so that's okay, but it does not increase well and it sulks when moved. The bloom has a rich heavy substance to it. It does kind of sit there, though, and doesn't grow much for me.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Carlotta') on July 17, tabbycat wrote:

My 'Carlotta' daylilies make proliferation plants. This July 2018 I cut four 6" plants off stems that still had flowers. I put them in water for 3 days, which makes them send out nice roots, then on day 4 I put them in potting soil. I've read they are actually clones of the plant they form on.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Creature of the Night') on July 9, mystlw wrote:

I have to agree with comments on the weak scapes of this plant. It's beautiful, very hardy, and I love the colors. But this is the first season it has fully bloomed, and two of its scapes ended up blooming on the ground. Next season I will support them, but that's something I shouldn't have to worry about with a daylily.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Westbourne Revivals') on July 4, SheilaC wrote:

This is very strange. I thought Westbourne Revivals was a tet so I've been putting pollen from tets on it and it's been setting pods for the last couple years. One that worked the best was Tully Mars. I'd have to check my notes but I believe it took Yoga Man too.

Any comments as to why that is?

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Linda's Magic') on July 2, Polymerous wrote:

This daylily has excellent substance and opens well despite our cooler/cold nights. It passes on good substance and bloom opening to its seedlings, and also the wide rolling ruffles.

That said, it generally looks like a cream here, with maybe the barest hint of pink.

I have a couple of seedlings from it ('Hip to be Square' x 'Linda's Magic') which start out with definite pink in the morning shade, but the pink fades. I have to wonder if they and 'Linda's Magic' are photosensitive, hence the "Magic".

Beautiful blooms but the scapes are too short and the blooms are often down in the foliage.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Banana Split Cupcake') on June 30, Frillylily wrote:

This bloom really does not have much color to it. To my eye, it looks washed out and muddy and there is nothing about it that stands out as memorable to me. The shape is nice, it opens nice, and is always double for me. It is difficult to get a good photo of it for me. It increases okay, but not fast, which is nice if you don't like dividing too often. It always returns well in the spring. I think it is more like 22 inches in my garden. It has never reached 28 for me.
