I probably have some of these nocturnal daylilies...

How do I find them?

I did a quick search of my plant list and came up with twelve. I would not have known they were nocturnal except for the search! Never even noticed it on most of them.

I discovered that I have abut 7. Who knew???

I probably found mine (I'm guessing the same way Larry found his), by looking in my plantstep software.

Nocturnal and extended bloom daylilies seem to be related?

I didn't go through my list yet, but can think of 3 registered ones I grow. If you live or dead head your garden the one thing you need to watch with nocturnal's is that you don't pick off blooms that are opening thinking they are closing!

Notify Ground Crew


The Levitating Ananuki, a kid from Notify Ground Crew. A few years ago I went out and took 2 images of a bud opening, one image at 6:30 in the evening. The other at 10 pm that night.



Planet Claire is nocturnal. In the second image you can see a bud starting to open in the background.

I would think yes because the nocturnals are generally open most of the night and a good portion of the day before they start to close. Extended blooming is defined as being open 16 or more hours. Here is the AHS/ADS Dictionary link for Extended Blooming

My other nocturnals are:
Desert Icicle
Full of Treasure
Licorice Twist
Lighthouse Neon Galaxy
Over Heated

Actually I did a control F search of my plant list here on NGA, didn't even have to open up my PlantStep program. I love how I have my plant list set up because it does allow me to search for bud count, branching, nocturnal etc. Off subject but I did actually get my number count of registered varieties corresponding in both locations again today.
Here are the ones I show:
I am willing to bet some of the nocturnals will be a surprise to some who are growing these.
Apple Tart, Bas Relief, Brer Rabbits, Feather Woman, Laughing Feather, Missouri Memories, Nothern Bright Eyes,
Planet Claire, Red Apparition, Red Squirrel, South Seas and Tuscawilla Tigress.
