I got Chew Mailpouch Tobacco during a club auction in 2018 where we had to use points earned to "buy" the daylilies being offered. It took $75 worth of points, but I have not regretted it at all because CMT has some really nice qualities.

I only received 1 or 2 fans in 2018, but it did bloom, so I was excited to actually see that what I received was CMT. But of course it didn't get full height and didn't have many blooms. In 2019, it sent up a scape, but the scape died.

In 2020, it only sent up 1 scape and it might have had 3 fans at that time. That one scape bloomed from at least 7/3/20 until 10/6/20!

7/3/20


8/11/20 around 6pm - Probably because it does not get full sun, but each bloom stays nice and red all day., just not quite a fresh looking. In full sun, I would think it would fade some.


9/24/20 - It even had a proliferation. I saved the prolif and planted it next to the mother plant. It looked like it was coming back in 2021, but I guess it died because I haven't seen it since spring. This is a real bud-builder!

10/6/20 - not a pretty bloom with cool nights and shorter days, but it has another bud still coming on behind this one!
Thumb of 2021-07-23/blue23rose/831664

7/19/21 - This year, I had 4 fans and 4 scapes. One scape died. The scapes are leaning because the plant gets several hours of shade under the Japanese cherry tree and is reaching for the sun in the afternoon, but the tallest scape is over 60 inches if I pull it up straight (may not reach it registered height of 73 inches where I have it now). These are some very strong scapes. At least 2-way branching and one scape even looks like about 5-way branching. Not sure what that lower portion of the scape on the left would be called but that scape has produced at least 45 buds this year and still has more to go.


6/30/21 - first bloom was around 6/25/21 and scapes are getting taller. The name really fits because of the barn red color and the foliage kind of reminds me of corn stalks.


I have not seen rust on CMT, but I only saw rust in my garden one year and that was several years ago. This is definitely a keeper!

Many thanks, Vickie for everything you wrote. That one is on my list of potentials, and you have helped sway me to move it onto my 'must have' list.

I planted this in 2019, so 2 years in the garden. It is a healthy plant and does not wait around to reach its mature height. In other words, it is really tall after only 2 years growing:) These photos are a couple of weeks old, I took them to record first bloom time. Many more blooms since then. I like this one!

Frank - The height on the scapes in your second picture are amazing! That really puts the height in perspective! Wow! Love it!

CMT has been in my garden for three years.
Has not achieved the registration height yet of 73 inches. Closer the 48 inches. Pod fertile. My CMT has shown broken color on multiple blooms. Looks almost like fine scratches to and occasional color break.
Not sure if this is stable or not.

I was curious, so I went out to measure the height of my Chew Mailpouch Tobacco, It's at 60 inches. It will be interesting to see what it gets to next year.

Also, the photo I posted was probably bloom #1. I will take some more mature photos tomorrow.

I don't have this one yet, but, I did get a ton of seeds on the LA. So far I have only heard good news about this one. Should pair well with other tall daylilies like Frank have.

It shows that I got this one in spring 2016, scapes get to or around it registered height as I am just shy of 6 ft' and they are as tall or a little taller than I am. Scapes generally are standing straight up and take our Midwestern thunderstorms with out leaning afterwords.
It does not bud build here and I think that because it is in afternoon shade, it probably averages between 20/25 buds per scape on the best ones.
As always I wish I knew how to post pictures but have not been shown how to by my offspring yet.
Even with our near drought conditions with a little help of a sprinkler turned on now and then it still is performing OK and is a keeper in my book.

Took some fresh photos this morning, hot and humid day here in Michigan. Flower looks good.

Hemerocallis 'Chew Mailpouch Tobacco' 7/2021 Dily- (Curt Hanson 2012) Tall Red Daylily Dily, Mature size: 73in, Barn Red, USDA Hardiness Zone 3, Michigan Bloom Week ISO WW28, In Garden Bed J2,17 for 25 MONTHS (Oak). Planted in 2019.

American Daylily Society: Chew Mailpouch Tobacco (Hanson-C., 2012)
height 73 in.(185 cm), bloom 5 in.(13 cm), season EM, Rebloom, Dormant, Tetraploid, Fragrant, 5 branches, Barn red. (Bela Lugosi × Tet.H. altissima)

Crintonic Gardens: For sheer landscape value, CHEW MAIL POUCH TOBACCO makes one dramatic architectural statement! This simple barn red is the most massive plant in the garden. No matter your tastes, you will notice this one. The scapes rise like broomsticks to over six feet and present eye level four and five way branching. While monumentally impressive, this plant begins to bloom in the early mid season and continues until frost. Fertile both ways.

Measured at 60 inches tall in 2021 (2nd year).

@hubcap,
I know you would have some great photos to post. It is not hard at all to post them here if you are using a camera, I don't take photos with my old flip phone, but with a smart phone I am sure someone could walk you through it. T-mail me if I can help you with the picture posting.
