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.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Dreaming of Zachary') on June 27, 4myartsdesire wrote:

Hybridizer Linda Pinkham gave me the great honor of naming this beautiful daylily. My son, Zachary R. Smith, passed away in 2015 and he and I both loved anything purple. It just made sense to name the plant after him, not only for its beauty and color, but also to honor him in a way that I could relive every year when the blooms open. It is a fitting name for a very beautiful human and a very beautiful flower. Thank you, Linda, for giving me the honor.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Crimson Pirate') on June 24, Joyruthie wrote:

My first Crimson Pirate was planted this spring and bloomed today (June 24, Zone 9a Florida). I haven't given it any special treatment, and I will have to say this daylily is spectacular! It is much prettier in person than any photo I have seen of it. It is a keeper!

This one has been slow to take off for me in zone 5, but blooms open very nicely.

This is the closest I have seen to an a white daylily. And, it is very floriferous!
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Variegated Kwanso') on June 18, tabbycat wrote:

YaY! It's June and I have my first blooms on this, the only variegated daylily I have. The double flowers look just like my other Kwanso. I love the variegated leaves, which are quite long and will make a large mound in a few years. It's in the center of one of my beds because of its tall height of about 32 inches. My starter clump was from Alana (poisondartfrog), to whom I say "Thank You Very Much".
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Autumn Red') on June 18, tabbycat wrote:

It's mid-June and on time this mid-seasoner has started blooming. I got the plant as a freebie with an order from Gilbert Wild & Son in Spring 2017. Records say it's an old faithful variety from the 1940s.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Happy and Blessed') on June 12, Seedfork wrote:

I have not been able to set a pod on this plant so far. It is very pollen fertile, however.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Kindly Light') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

It's one of the 2 spider varieties I have. It makes large wispy 7+" flowers on 30" stems. The leaves are narrow and more flimsy than my other daylilies. It blooms about a month from April into May here in zone 9. It hasn't multiplied very fast over the 15 years I've had it, maybe because I've moved twice, so uprooting may have slowed it down.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Elegant Candy') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

One of my prettiest recurved varieties. It starts out mauve pink and fades a little to a seashell pink by the end of the day. The wide petals and sepals form a 5" circular flower that looks very lush with the darker halo. Mine bloom a long time, from late April into June. I cut scapes of it to bring indoors for a couple of days of flowers.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Capulina') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

I started mine from a "proliferation" off a plant in a weedy, overgrown median flowerbed in a Walmart parking lot in 1995. It is one of the 2 spider varieties I have. The evergreen plant mound is large as the leaves are longer than others. It makes 6" flowers on about 32" scapes all of May. I have collected proliferations through the years to successfully start more plants.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Made in Heaven') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

I've had mine a year and it blooms in late April thru May. It gets about 21" tall and makes a larger than usual flower at 5+". The pastel pink glistens in the sun and is accented by its darker watermark and yellow center. Its slightly recurved sepals and ruffled edged petals add to its remarkable beauty. I purchased it from G. Wild & Son April 2017, so have enjoyed 2 bloom seasons. It was a great investment.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Janice Brown') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

This is the softest pink I have. The rosy eye really stands out. It blooms in April here in zone 9 for about a month. I have it in morning sun but protected from afternoon sun under the shade of a tree so it doesn't fade. It was in full sun but It faded a lot by afternoon.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Cezanne') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

An elderly neighbor gave me my start of this beautiful flower in 2004 but she couldn't recall its name. For 12 years I called it 'Tropical Punch'. It is a mix of tropical fruit colors from coral to peach. When I joined garden .org I posted it as "Can you name it?". Several responses lead me to 'Cezanne' and it fit the description and photos perfectly. For years it made huge 7" flowers, but on very short stems. Last spring I moved it to a full sun area and fertilized with Bayer Rose & Flower 3 in One and it now gets 12' to 15" scapes, which are closer to the 24" it could get. Maybe next spring after 2 years in full sun, the height will increase. The picture I posted looks darker than it is. It's an awesome combination of watermarked, creped petals with veining and searsuckered edges.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Royal Heiress') on June 11, tabbycat wrote:

This was the 2nd daylily I bought back in 1999 while walking through a local daylily farm. It was in full bloom and gorgeous. I'd never seen a watermark, and this large chalky one is very impressive against its wine color. It blooms early in April and again in July/Aug here in zone 9. Only peeve is that in-between bloom cycles it gets rust, so I've learned to cut all foliage back to 3" after 1st cycle and start a fungicide spray routine as well as putting granular Rose & Flower 3 in One by Bayer at its base. The new leaves don't have rust and it is ok for the 2nd bloom cycle.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Hillbilly Heart') on June 10, tabbycat wrote:

Thanks again to Alana for a start of this gorgeous flower. She said it's her favorite and now I must agree. We traded last Sept., so this spring the plants are established and really put on a show. Blooms started April 22 for about a month. The colors of this large flower are outstanding and it has the heaviest pie crust edge of any I have. Surprisingly, it barely fades in full sun all day. Definitely a winner. I'm so glad Alana shared some with me.
