Hello, I hope you will post pictures of your favorite Doubles. I have been collecting daylilies over 10 years and just last year began to really enjoy them. I am looking for hardy ones, that perform well. Fragrance is a bonus. I live in zone 6. This year my favorite has been Silver Highlights. I love Big Kiss, Big Fuss and Vanilla Fluff.

No matter how many newer, fancier daylilies I get, Siloam Double Classic will always be a favorite of mine. It does awesome here in Ohio, and clumped up faster than any other daylily I've had. This pic is from a clump I recently cut back and divided.

I have a little one that blooms very early,
Yellow Bouquet, 18", 3" bloom, EE. This one is great at the front of a border. I also have Big Kiss, Siloam Double Classic, Siloam Olin Frazier, Siloam Peony Display and Peggy Jeffcoat.

I'm picky about doubles but I have some nice dark red ones! All Branched Out and Night Embers bloomed very pretty for me this month. I got double doubles from Night Embers here:

I have a handful of doubles but my all time favorite is Meringue Mirage.

It took a while for it to get established when I got it. But oh boy, once it did, it's gorgeous.

As for fragrant...hmmm....don't know. I NEVER can tell if a daylily is fragrant, even when it's listed as that.

Thanks for posting this! I very recently received Joyful Walk as a bonus plant, it's good to know how beautiful it is! Smiling
