I would like to add some late bloomers to my beds….they look so pretty in June and July, and then slowly look so unkempt with no pretty flowers by August. Is there a way to search for cultivars by bloom time and zone? I have tried searching unsuccessfully. Thank you!

You can search the database here by both but I don't know how reliable the zones are, it turned up 30,408 cultivars for my zone with nothing else selected. I got zero results for late and very late in 6a but I have some the are L and VLa here. I would tend to look more at where a daylily was hybridized or ask on the forum here

You can also search the American Hemerocallis Society database for bloom season and other characteristics but not hardiness zone

You could try looking at sites for daylily sellers in your area. Anything they list as late or very late should bloom at that time and also survive in your garden!

Bloom season is one thing but the rebloom/zone query seems tough to investigate. We- the DL community- don't have a good way of marking rebloom in the north vs south. You could start a thread to get ideas. It's the perfect time of year for people to notice and make suggestions for late bloomers and late rebloomers as they are looking at them in their gardens. I'll post some of my late faves if we have a thread going.

The thing is, sellers usually stick with the original AHS registration info, unless it's buried in their listing comments.

A more laborious method would be to read the Aug 2021 blooming thread here and look for people posting from 6a.
A similar search can be done within other threads such as this older one:
The thread "Show Us Your Latest Blooming Daylilies Please" in Daylilies forum

Not as cool as a database search, by any means.

There is a dalily club in Columbus, OH. https://columbusdaylilies.org/
I recommend joining because I learned so much when I joined the local clubs. They would definitely be able to tell you what the late bloomers are in your area. Sorry to say the clubs in my area aren't around any more and I sure miss them.

Other ways are:
1) paying attention to the August bloom thread and who from zone 6a has late bloomers as Orion mentioned.
2) visit gardens in zone 6a in mid to late July to see what is just beginning to send up scapes. I don't know if they have open gardens, may be only by appointment, but Heavenly Gardens is near Columbus, OH.

I am in zone 6b and have only a few of what I would call late bloomers. Running Late is still blooming pretty good. I just got Sandra Elizabeth and Bermuda Coral based on several people saying they bloom late, so I am hoping to see more August blooms next year.
May all your weeds be wildflowers. ~Author Unknown

I should have also mentioned that a lot of daylily sellers allow you to visit (although many are by appt.). If you can't make it to one just give them a call! They should be able to tell you off the bat what is blooming/reblooming in their gardens now.

Personally I'd focus on late bloomers. On the rare occasions I get rebloom it isn't the same cultivar every year. We also had a LOT of rain in July which may increase my chances for rebloom this year. A normal year, not so much.

Can't beat seeing the flowers in person before choosing.
Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus and Kingwood Center in Mansfield both have large daylily collections. At least they used to…. its been pre covid since I have been to either.
If I were you I would make a day trip to them and see what they have still blooming.

Also if you go on Daylily Society website and look under display gardens in Ohio and see if any are open for visits.
Here is the page.

I'd recommend that you contact Carl Harmon at Harmon Hill Farm. He has a large number of lates (Especially Sobek varieties) and many of my rebloomers bloom in the late season as well.

There is a list of hybridizers with region/state on this web page https://daylilies.org/resource... (you will need to scroll down). You can view the list on the screen or you can download the list as an Excel spreadsheet file. On my computer screen the text was tiny until I clicked on the + sign several times.

Searching the daylily database at https://www.daylilies.org/Dayl... finds 372 very late diploid daylilies registered and 154 very late tetraploid daylilies registered.

Krekler, for example is listed with an Ohio address (region 2).
Krekler registered 101 daylilies as VLa.

Hibbard is listed with a New York address.
Hibbard registered 31 daylilies as VLa.

There were 1035 tetraploid daylilies registered as Late and 1421 registered as diploids.

Krekler registered 122 daylilies as Late.
Hibbard registered 21 daylilies as Late.

One thing I did was just look at the monthly threads on what is blooming. You can look at the August Blooms and September Blooms threads, and look for posters that are in your zone or a similar zone, and see what they are posting. That's what I did, and have stolen a lot of late ideas from Hazelcrestmikeb. Smiling

There are three ways to get late blooms. 1) buy daylilies that are registered VL, 2) buy daylilies that rebloom late, or 3) buy daylilies that are M or ML but are Bud Builders so they end up blooming into the late seasons.

Mike Huben has a lot of excellent rebloomers that can add blooms later as well. I have good luck with Magenta Kisses, Kanai Sensei, and But I Repear Myself in my zone. I like how late the VL's bloom for me that I got from Jim Murphy and Margo Reed at Woodhenge Gardens. I would definitely look through their site for VL daylilies. Some of their lates are bud builders, too. Cayenne and Fred's Red seem to build buds, and both bloom a long time, and quite late for me.

If you lean toward Tet daylilies, you should check out Scapehunters list. I love his L and VL Tet daylilies. He has some from Thomas that not everyone has, and they are really nice. Maybe tree mail him to see if he knows how to hook you up.
