|Alright, I want to jump in here. The "favorites" posts are filled with beautiful daylilies. I am drooling. Would you share pictures of your favorite patterned daylilies with me? It is such a nice way to keep the mind off this awful snowy weather.|

|Wow....Really like Wild dreams, DD, Waves of joy. Are any of those hardy enough to survive zone 5a?|

|I may have one patterned daylily and it is an oldie. I have a couple of new ones that should bloom this summer, Bella Isabella & Dragonfly Dawn. My oldie is CHINESE TEMPLE FLOWER.

|Love the pics! ~And wish I had a pic to share (my Cosmic Kaleidoscope hasn't bloomed yet), but I think I'm going to love it when it does. --Crossing my fingers it makes it through the winter though. We're getting some pretty cold temps.
Edited because I forgot about Picotee Prism.

|Here are a few patterned daylilies growing in zone 5/6 Kansas.
BONIBRAE BABY BLUE EYES
The next 2 are from Tim Bell. The first has been through a couple of our winters, Butterfly Moon was new last spring.
BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOWS
CAPTAIN JACK is from gary Schaben in Minnesota so should be very hardy. New here last summer.
COLDBEAR RAPPORT I'm not sure if this pattern showed up consistently or not. Will have to check next summer.
DRAGONFLY DREAMS from Nan Wilkerson I've had this one for several years. Hasn't multiplied, but I think that may be due to shady location more than a hardiness issue, but who knows. Blooms well.
DREAM SEQUENCE This one was also new last summer. So far I just love it!
Will post more later. Looks like I've got more 'patterns' than I thought.....

|I love this thread! Patterns are something I've been curious about since I started growing daylilies, so I just went to the AHS site and read about patterned daylilies, and I've copied an excerpt here.
"A daylily that exhibits variations in hue, value, or saturation of the base, midrib, or throat color, in such a way that a design is created beyond that of a bold or solid eye, band, halo or watermark, with or without simple picotee edging. This type of "patterning" includes, but is not limited to, daylilies with concentric rings or feathering of color within the eyezone or elsewhere. It excludes selfs, simple bitones, and simple bicolors."
There were several excellent photographs of different examples, and a couple of the pictures showed what they call a "mascara band" at the outer edge of the eye zone, followed by a different color or colors moving down toward the throat. It seems that I have quite a few of those and didn't realize they would be considered patterned daylilies. And when I went through my photos and really focused on the eye zone area, I was amazed at what I found there that I had never realized I had captured in my pictures!
I'm going to start with minis/smalls with eye patterns because I think they are absolutely adorable and such wonderful creations.
TINY FIRECRACKER - The pattern really showed itself on this little poly.
LITTLE SURFER GIRL - This one can look quite different depending on the weather!
TET. STAR CHILD
LITTLE BLOOM RIDER
CHILD OF ATLANTIS
GOT THE BLUES
SERENADE OF SPRINGTIME
BLACK FATHOM DEPTHS - Not sure if this is patterned or not, but it sure is a cutie!
I do hope someone will let me know If I have misinterpreted what I now think patterned daylilies are.
Edit: Oops -- Forgot a wonderful little one:

|Wow, Ann, I just love your BUTTERFLY MOON and DREAM SEQUENCE blooms! And WAVES OF JOY is just spectacular -- I've ordered his new ANGEL LOVE, but I keep looking at WAVES OF JOY… Must resist, must resist!

|This is great. I am really enjoying everyones pictures. It is nice to see how many different patterned daylilies are out there and in our gardens.
Betty, I just read that information you posted from AHS last night! I found it informative. I never knew what the name was for a "mascara band" until I read it. Thanks for posting it. Your Tet. Star Child and Little Leprechaun really caught my eye, beautiful!
Fred - your Wild Dreams and Lilian's Lying Eyes are very much to my liking. I especially love the colors of LLE. This tends to be one of my favorite color combinations.
Tink - I do not think I can actually pick a favorite from your group of daylilies. All of them are beautiful in my eyes. Although...... I think that Waves Of Joy might go on my list of daylilies to look into.
Cynthia - I will be looking forward to seeing your Dragonfly Dawn picture this summer!
Cats1 - Your Picotee Prism is stunning with that color combination.
Ann - I simply cannot pick a favorite from yours either :)
Thank you to all who have posted and to any future posters. It is wonderful!

|WILD DREAMS, PAINTED RAINBOW, WAVES OF JOY!! Wow so many gorgeous daylilies and so little space..... I'm trying to limit myself to things that might fit into my 'hybridizing' program. Unfortunately that's not very focused so not the most useful 'limit'......|

|Have always loved Picotee Prism. On the 'get it someday' wish list.
It’s okay to not know all the answers.

|I love the patterns we see in daylilies. The colors, combinations, intricate lines..all so interesting to look at. What a fantastic collection of small/mini patterns Betty and Bonibrae Baby Blue Eyes can't say I've seen that one before, gorgeous! A few more to add to the favorites...

|How's a person supposed to 'cut back' with so many stunning daylilies demanding to be grown in one's very own garden....
Wonderful photos Char and Betty! You have some real beauties!!

|Oh every time I see SCARE AS DUCKS TEETH I'm reminded that I really need to add that!|

|Great photos everyone.
Betty read the same thing on the AHS site several months ago when the Journal had a big spread on pattern daylilies, did not realize at the time it took so little variation in the eye to be considered a pattern. I assume any daylily that doesn't have a solid colored eye zone could be registered or promoted as a pattern daylily. I still grow some of Liz Salter's daylilies from the 70s,80s and 90s before the word pattern was ever used and her last name was still Hudson.
All descriptions and some photos are from the AHS data base.
Enchanter's Spell (Hudson, 1982) (Photo from AHS)
height 18in (46cm), bloom 3in (7.6cm), season M, Rebloom, Semi-Evergreen, Diploid, Ivory with dark purple and chalky lavender eyezone above lime throat.
Jason Salter (Salter-E.H., 1987)
height 18in (46cm), bloom 2.75in (7.0cm), season EM, Evergreen, Diploid, Yellow with washed lavender purple eyezone and green throat. (Enchanter's Spell × (Enchanted Elf × Cosmic Hummingbird))
Witch's Thimble (Hudson, 1981)
height 14in (36cm), bloom 2.25in (5.7cm), season M, Semi-Evergreen, Diploid, White ivory with black purple eyezone and green throat. (Elf Witch × Dragons Eye)
(Photo from AHS)
Patchwork Puzzle (Salter-E.H., 1990)
height 28in (71cm), bloom 2.75in (7.0cm), season EM, Rebloom, Tetraploid, Ivory lemon with washed lavender purple eyezone and green throat.

|According to AHS then Fred, I may have more patterned daylilies than I thought I did.
