Thank You! Vickie, I.Lemon is my favorite yellow. It's been here over ten years, was ordered from a catalog when I knew virtually nothing much about daylilies. I bought it for the picture and the fact that it was cheap--paid about $12 for three plants, and also for the fragrance. It has never disappointed, always reliable bloomer every year.

It's kind of like having a yellow gusher in your garden.

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Oh boy! With so many beautiful yellows to choose from, I don''t know how you can narrow down to one, Paul. You may need to find space for more! That's the trouble with daylilies. You start wanting one and then before you know it, you add a few more than what was planned. Smiling Smiling Good luck with choosing!

In addition to others, I like Omomuki for its early bloom. The garden was so fresh then and we didn't have this terrible heat. While others long for lates, the last few years, the late garden has been especially hot and dry. I especially enjoy early midseason cultivars.

For later bloom, you can't beat Stone Beacon as a landscape plant. Good height, well scaped, big flowers, bright but not harsh, vigorous. Only drawback is that you have to have room for a rather large plant.

PLANET CLAIRE by Hanson is my favorite large yellow daylily. The blooms are large and they have good substance. The form changes a bit every day. Sometimes it's more open formed and other times it recurves. Mine is healthy, hardy, and blooms well in zone 4/5 NH. It has a sturdy scape too.

For a nice large yellow that is Late try ISLE OF CAPRI. It was one of my first dl purchases about 15 yrs ago. Fragrant and blooms when others are winding down.

Celeste, I agree about Planet Claire! It is a nice all around yellow daylily. I gave a start to my cousin a few weeks ago, so now I am down to a couple of fans. I also need to move it to a sunnier spot, but it has done well under the cherry tree. And I think the yellow looks move saturated because it gets more shade.
