I was lucky enough to go to down to FL for Mecca a few years ago and one place I spent quite a bit of time at was Dan Hansen's garden and since Dan was growing many of Ned's daylilies I was fortunate to see quite a collection of them. I happen to love UF cascades and I think that Ned has some beauties. Two that impressed me that I saw growing down in FL standing up to the pouring rain we had that year were NED'S ELENA and BROTHER CAL. I was sooooo happy to have them come home with me. They have been growing in my gardens in NH with no mulch.

And another of BRER RABBIT'S BABY love those curls! I think this is one of Ned's best.

What a lovely photo! I wish I knew where there were more of Ned's growing around me, so I could see them in person!

I agree Coral Eyeshadow has beautiful color. Ned's Elana is very feminine, soft pink with curls. I can see why you had to bring it home!

Coral Eye Shadow is beautiful. I tried that one and Desert Icicle and neither one would grow here. Tried Desert Icicle twice and then gave up.

I have Kathy Macartney, if it survived the winter (and if the plant label survived the winter so I can find it again)
