Has anyone grown plants from this named and patented series of daylilies that are being described as "everblooming"?

I had never even heard of them but it appears what they are offering is not "everblooming", but repeat blooming with mature plants producing up to 400 plants per season. So I would assume you would have to have a long growing season for those plants to rebloom enough to produce 400 blooms. They all appear to have heritage back to Stella de Oro, but it has never done well at all here.

I don't have a first hand account of these, yet, but I remember chatting with someone who grew one. If anyone is curious what they look like, I think I figured out these are registered by Heemskerk, and all have names that start "EDL..." You can search for them in the database.

There's a nice bitone called Lemon Punch or Punch Yellow or something that I tried to find, but couldn't find anyone who sold them around me. I probably needed to try box stores or something other than the usual garden centers I visit.

They are plant patented and their plant patents specifically indicate that they are not the same as reblooming daylilies but are different in that they are everblooming. Of course, the patents do not define what everblooming means.
From one of the patents,
"The new cultivar can be most closely compared to the cultivars Longfields Pearl (not patented) and Ice Carnival (not
patented). Both cultivars are similar to VER00112 in flower coloration. Longfields Pearl differs from VER00112 in
having flower petals margins that are less undulating, in having larger and longer leaves, taller flowering scapes, and in having a reblooming habit rather than everblooming. Ice Carnival differs from VER00112 in having larger flowers,
much taller flowering scapes, and in lacking an everblooming habit. "

A distinction is made in the text between 'Longfields Pearl' "having a reblooming habit" rather than their daylily as "everblooming".

I expect that everblooming may not mean anything more than one set of scapes still has at least one bud to open while the next set of scapes has already begun by opening its first bud. So each bout of rebloom overlaps the previous/next bout of bloom by at least one bud.

However, that is what I am trying to determine - how do these cultivars flower, how do they rebloom and what is it about how they flower that could be described as "everblooming" - if anything.

I got a couple of their plants last spring. I believe one came from Wild and the other from Brecks or Springhill nursery. I will have to look it up.

I have a couple of Heemskerk plants but they don't do worth a darn in my TX garden (both dormants). One at least has some bloom annually ['Entrapment'] but the other doesn't ['Bettylen'] and it is in a lot of sunlight. I should move them to MI to see if they do any better there; otherwise they are headed for the compost heap. I don't plan to get any more from this hybridizer.

Thank you for the suggestion. I am hoping to learn what the plants actually do in the hands of gardeners, but I will try to get Heemskerk to provide details of what their plants are claimed to do.

My interpretation of the plant patent details for one of the series.

"Flower number—Average of 8 flowers and bud per Scape, average of 48 per plant."

"Rate of flower opening.—About 20% of flowers open at a time, about 4 weeks for all flowers to open per scape."

"Scape number-1 per fan at one time, continuously produced during bloom season."

I expect that a plant of this series is expected to have an average of six mature fans in flower at the same time with about nine to ten flowers open at the same time. A scape will last four weeks in bloom. Before any scape finishes flowering a new scape will have started flowering. The end result would be "everblooming".

My question is, does this actually happen in a real garden, north to south, etc. and if not what do the cultivars actually manage to do in real garden situations?

Maurice I remember reading Guy Pierce comments on at least one of his plants as everblooming. One example is the 2020 Tumbleweed.
Entrapment is a stallion around here.

It appears that some people consider reblooming and especially instant reblooming daylilies as "Ever blooming.
Sounds to me more like a marketing gimmick."

@Hazelcrestmikeb Thanks.
Was 'Entrapment' described as an everbloomer?

Maurice it was not. Just listed as a rebloomer. I originally bought it after reading an old article that spoke about five daylilies that average about 500 blooms per season and Entrapment was one of them.

I saw Everydaylily Yellow Punch at Home Depot. It wasn't there for long...it flew off the shelves. Monrovia grows it. I wish I'd bought some...it was cute, and looked vigorous.

Judging from the description of EveryDaylily Yellow Punch, they've started calling it a reblooming daylily as opposed to ever-blooming.

BTW, this is from the History and Lore section about this plant.
"This new variety is part of the EveryDaylily® series of hardy, dwarf, re-blooming Hemerocallis, and is an offspring of the widely popular Stella d'Oro daylily. Diploid. Introduced by Heemkerk in Noordwijk, The Netherlands in 2015. U.S. introduction by Ball Horticultural in 2016."
Hardy hibiscus are a hobby, but daylilies are an obsession.

Thanks for the info. I know I can try there or Lowe's next year. The person I chatted with about it said it had bloomed steady for her from July 5 until the day we chatted about it, but that was only mid August, I think. So I would be curious how long it goes continuously sending up scapes. But no one here seems to have good stats on it, yet.

I have 3 Heemskerk daylilies none said everydaylily. Got them from Bluestone in the fall of 18. None have flowered or grown very much. Wish they did they looked pretty in the ads for them, maybe this year. Thumbs up
