I am now starting the 17th Daylily of the Day poll .... If you want to continue to review cultivars, please add some daylily names in a post on this thread!

The last poll we had was way back in November 2020. I am asking members to please pick cultivars that they OWN. The more members that own a cultivar, the better (to have numerous evaluations). Please make sure that you post the correct name and spelling of the cultivars you list. You can list up to 20 cultivars that you actually own and are willing to post an evaluation for when the cultivar is featured as the Daylily of the Day. (A new cultivar will be posted every other day.)

List your 20 (or less) cultivars with just the full cultivar name only!
Example List:

Beautiful Edgings
Wind Wishes
Awesome Blossom

And don't forget that you can post an evaluation at any time to any of the Daylily of the Day threads. An acorn will be awarded for each evaluation. You can post "annual" evaluations of any cultivars at least a year after your previous evaluation of that cultivar. (And earn another acorn tip!) Previously featured Daylilies of the Day cultivar threads can be found in this forum. They are listed in alphabetical order: https://garden.org/barn/potd/a...

Please check the above link, to make sure that any cultivars you list have not already been a featured daylily of the day cultivar, before adding to your list. Thanks!

This poll will end on Saturday, July 31, 2021.

Thanks for helping choose more cultivars for evaluations!!! We appreciate your help and enthusiasm! Thank You!

REMEMBER - YOU can earn an acorn for each evaluation of both current and past cultivars if they are new evaluations or your evaluation is a year apart from your last evaluation of any cultivars. (NOTE: If, for some reason, you don't receive an acorn for an evaluation, please tree-mail me so that I can make sure that you do get an acorn.)

If there is little interest in keeping the Daylily of the Day feature going with more cultivars, then I will request that Dave discontinue it going forward.

Does this mean that it is OK to post evaluations in old "Daylily of the Day" threads, even some that are several years old? I have thus far refrained from doing so.

This is where you would go to post comments about past "Daylily of the Day" plants. It was set up so new comments could be added at any time which makes it a great feature. How can a person really comment or evaluate a brand new plant after only a few months. But, after a few years you know if it blooms every year, if it can withstand extreme climate changes, if it is susceptible to insects and diseases etc. You can say if it ever reached the stats shown in the registration and make knowledgeable comments.

Thanks, Larry. (Corrected from original post!!)

I haven't been a member that long, so I have never participated in the "Plant of the Day" thread. The recent ones are all for plants I don't have. But some of the older ones are for plants that I've grown for several years, so I have something to add.

I'm also going to suggest doing one on Peggy Jeffcoat, which 41 members have (including me).

I also wish people would add to their opinion to older daylilies. I find these evaluations very valuable when I look at buying new plants, and just a bit frustrating when the only remarks are that it is new this year Smiling

My plan is to go through my list when things slow down and put in an annual evaluation for every plant I have that's had a Plant of the Day thread. Which is actually a lot of them! I was surprised how few I could find that hadn't already been written about. The other problem, is with the newer plants, only a few people owned them. Plus, there's not much you can say about the plant if you only had it for a year.

Larry - Thanks for explaining about the Past Daylily of the Day suggestion to post updates of any previously spotlighted cultivars. The more comments about any particular cultivar, the better to perhaps help guide daylily lovers as to which plant might grow well in their zone and what to expect!

I always read those comments before I decide to add any cultivars to my garden.

And thanks to all of you who have added a list of cultivars to feature in the near future!

I also suggest doing Purple de Oro, which 47 members have. I second Blueberry Candy, which was suggested above.

I checked some cultivars that I suggested, took pics and made notes, because I will not remember next January (or whenever they are featured) how many buds, branching, increase, rust/no rust, or whatever to include in reviews. This is the time of year to get all that info. Unfortunately, I've cut the scapes on a few that I suggested, so will have only pictures to go by. *Blush*

This thread is closed.

Thank you to all who participated by creating your list of daylily cultivars to be featured for future evaluations. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I know that many really appreciate it and read your evaluations. Feel free to add any updated evaluations of the previously featured cultivars! Some cultivars do change in their habits from year to year.
