Heidi, glad you got your plants and quite quick! And you are welcome! Lovey dubby

Ken, I 'think' the plants in the ice buckets will be ok. They didn't seem any worse for the experience, which just goes to show how tough daylilies are. I took the buckets inside to let them thaw and then planted the fans back out in the garden. To them it was probably like being in a coma for a night Rolling on the floor laughing They woke up in the garden with no memory of the experience.

Celeste,
Keep us posted on how those plants progress. I divided some of my plants last year later than I ever had, and I decided that winter might just be the best time for me to do that. More for my sake than the plants, the weather is so nice here in the winter most days. But being down in the low 20's is way colder than I would have considered safe to plant them back out in the garden. What type soil do you have there? I would love to know when those plants start showing new growth. Those roots look fantastic! I noticed they have almost none of the fine hair like roots, but just the thick tuber like roots.Do you know why that is? Does that vary with the time of year?

Hi Larry,
Those roots are always like that. It doesn't matter when I dig them. Huge, tuberous roots that go all the way to China. Smiling I have heavy, rocky soil here in New Hampshire, leaning toward acidic because of all the rocks & minerals and evergreen trees. I don't know if they are like that because of the soil or because they need those big tubers to go through our harsh winters. But when I buy from southern growers I notice the roots are different.

I am thinking the daylilies in the frozen buckets will be fine since they were from my own super-hardy stock which brave these extreme temperatures without fear. Temps were down into the 20's again last night and you would never know it by looking at my plants. They just barely came up so they don't have as much growth as those of you where it's warmer. But they are all bright green and happy looking.

Hi, Celeste.

The roots on Sir Modred were so long and strong/rigid that I had difficulty fitting them into a pot. I mean, he fit width-wise, but he seems to be riding kind of high in the pot.

I still need to add an inch of mulch, or less. Even so, do you think I should re-pot him in a deeper pot?

Our day-long soaking rain should help eliminate any air pockets in my potting medium. Smiling
Hardy hibiscus are a hobby, but daylilies are an obsession.

I think he'll be fine, Ken. Looks okay to me. That daylily and Catherine Woodbury are my original and oldest daylilies. I got them ages ago and they have survived neglect, below zero cold, being divided dozens of times and several summer droughts. You can't hurt or kill the ole' Sir. Smiling An interesting thing to note is that if I let my daylilies grow into huge clumps after many years (which is often the case), eventually the frost heaves the clump up a little to where it sits higher above the ground level. It has never impacted their performance in any way.

Thanks Celeste for the daylilies! They arrived on Friday in excellent condition. I wasn't expecting so many fans! They are all planted now. We're expecting rain all day tomorrow so they should be well watered in. I can't wait to see them all bloom!

Yay, Elena! Hurray! They will love all that rain.....we are getting SNOW on Monday, 4-6 inches. I am glad you are happy with what I sent you. I really enjoyed our communicating over daylilies and such. Be safe and happy,
Blessings,

I have just updated my listing to add some of the LATE and VERY LATE blooming daylilies hybridized in Vermont by Olallie Daylily Farm. These are rugged, hardy, great bloomers for the end of the season. There are photos of them on the Olallie website. (You will see that my prices are much more reasonable). The blooms are on the 'plain' side and nothing fancy but these are wonderful to have when all other daylilies have finished up. Mine will bloom right into October!

I also added Frosted Vintage Ruffles to my listing.

I have several late and very late daylilies from Olallie and they really do make the daylily season last for those of us in the North that don't get a lot of rebloom.

I have Butterscotch Harvest and it is my latest blooming daylily. It started blooming last year on August 25th and went until almost October. And that's with complete neglect the past two years! Here's a picture:

I'd definitely recommend Olallie daylilies as they are very hardy and really brighten up the garden when the fall colors start creeping in.

I agree You are right, Elena. They really brighten up the land of brown scapes and soften the blow of daylily season coming to an end. They are not fancy but they are rugged. Mine get no pampering and bloom well every year. Butterscotch Harvest, RR Red, Sophie and The Last Melon are the very latest blooming ones. But most of them will keep going and going, right into mid-October here and the only thing that stops them is the killing freezes. They look pretty with the autumn leaves falling around them.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ORDERED! It was a very successful (and tiring) first-time selling plants here on NGA. I loved 'meeting' all the great folks who love daylilies as much as I do. Smiling But I have many chores to do in my garden (like planting out hundreds of new seedlings) so I am closing my sale for the year.

I will be back in the fall with my SEED Sale. Take care everybody!

So glad to hear you were pleased with the plants, Michelle! I hope they do wonderfully for you. Bloom may be delayed this year because they will still be on 'New Hampshire time'. Normal bloom season is July through August here. Thanks for the great review! Thumbs up
