- Regardless of whether a site sends me two or three fans, I'm putting 'em all in the same hole, right? So if I want, say, a trio of a given variety, I'm ordering three?
- Planting in fall (near Boston, zone 6b) is a good idea, right?
- Bonus variety recs: My ideal day lily is short (18-22"), orange, tet, re- or long-blooming, dormant, and tough (remember, I have no idea what I'm doing). And available online. I'm a little overwhelmed by variety, so I would love some guidance.

A lot of the sellers send a double fan of a cultivar. I try to stay away from those that send single fans as they take longer to establish in my garden and the doubles just seem to do better for me. Just make note that "DF" indicates double fan or "SF" for a single fan. I've been surprised a few times thinking I would receive a double only to receive a single fan.

Are you looking for the color "orange" exclusively ? Only short ones ? Are these for the border ?
If you haven't already found the Daylily Database, you should try it. You can input your own search parameters with your preferences...

Good point about wrong varieties. But re. blooms, either way - right about now, or in next spring - I'm hoping for blooms next summer, right? I figured getting them in the ground now would increase my chances to see flowers next summer.
