So, one of my goals this summer was to try to capture and catalogue what I have out in the yard. After almost 30 years of planting Daylilies, many of my original plants have been moved around or I never bothered to mark what they were. So, after careful observation, I think I have the NOIDS catalogued at 65 individuals. Some of these might turn out to be the same plant. Some of these might turn out to be different plants that I lumped into the same category. I will continue trying to refine this to the best of my ability.
But I thought it would be fun to share the list. These are all oldies, most or all are from the 20th century. I'll do it in segments. And if other folks have photos of NOIDS from this summer, please post them too! If you think you might know what the plant is or feel like venturing a wild guess, all speculation is welcome!
So here we go…I'm going to start with my beloved Cheeky Cherry, which I think might be a Cherry Cheeks seedling but it could be a named plant that I haven't seen anywhere
This plant was originally sold to me as Darius but it isn't. But it is beautiful. Short and intense, it's an EM bloomer, going from June 30 to July 20 this year
This is obviously a very old style Daylily, looks like something from the 30s or 40s. This is a Early bloomer
This is a tall, beautiful, large flowered Daylily that I have tons of photos of. Blooming ML from July 14 to August 2nd, this plant is a splashy presence in a difficult location
This is a large healthy yellow, down in the Island Bed.
A blazing short orange Midseason, blooming from July 1 to July 22 this year
This one curls into a bagel when it's hot but spreads out in cooler weather. It reminds a little of Moana Loa but it isn't. Maybe Joiner's Blazing Torch?
