|This one wins scape of the year.... it always has amazing branching, but this year, it has outdone itself.|

|And, one of my very favorites, but never hear it mentioned anywhere... Zazu is a wonderful peachy-orange that is tall, has big flowers that pinch and have throat ruffles. Very hard to get seed with it or on it.|

|One of the scapes on Truganini --- not bad in a year when so many are really tall, but top branched. Unusual amount of rain this year!|

|Nice branching on Truganini!|
I had my second bloom on my peach seedling... I was gone all day so this was late. It's lighter at the end of the day. Nothing else is blooming and I have my last Iris Dynamite bloom...maybe tomorrow some other DLs will open. It's hard to be patient!
Susan it's fun to see yours and know mine won't be long behind. I love Kansas Kitten! And the picture of Cameroon is great with the white lily behind.

|Jules what zone are you?> Will the Hansons survive zone 4?|

|Dorathy, I am in 5/6, Curt Hanson is in 5. I know Gary Shaben (sp?) grows a lot of Curts in Minnesota (I think that is where Gary lives....)|
I don't think they would have a problem. If there are particular ones your interested in, and your not a member of the AHS robin, I can post a question there for you.... surely someone in zone 4 grows Hanson's!

|It's probably worth trying some. I haven't killed any DLs some just shrink over the years! Some of the evs have surprised me, Pandora's Treasure that was a bonus from Maryott is going crazy here, tripled in size and throwing up scapes..you never know.|
I love my Northwind Dancer and Drifters. Schabens are good!
This will open up some new horizons.

|Since everyone seems to be looking at these threads, did everyone see this thread from Sunshines2day? I have never heard of the daylily, or the hybridizer.|

|I wish my Fabulous Frieda looked that good !|

|Rita, FabF didn't bloom last year. I actually cheat - I have my darker daylilies where they are shaded until about noon. Makes for good photos. I have another bed that is full sun, and I have yellow, peach, pink in that one.|

|They are all beautiful, I loved the color on the Kansas Kitten too. |
Fabulous Frieda is an eyecather too. Beautiful.

|I got mine last year but it didn't bloom. I had my reds in part shade too and they looked pretty good but a big tree came down this spring. Now its full sun. Much better in general and I like it all much better. But the reds in there are not looking as good, kinda melted.|
