judydu2,
Would you mind listing maybe the top 5 or 10 that do best in your garden with the extreme heat and full sun? Maybe also state what characteristics you consider to be included in the phrase "do best". I consider lots of blooms, reblooms, non fading colors, strong scapes that hold the flowers up above the foliage, and non burning foliage plants that "do best". I am sure you will have your own favorite traits.

Traits that contribute to my labeling a daylily a great performer here include the ability to increase well each year, no summer dormancy, and to bloom well and hold buds during high periods of extreme heat (100-106 degrees). Off the top of my head, in no particular order, some tetraploids that exhibit those traits for me are: H. 'Sweet Country Luvin', 'God Save The Queen', 'Lighter Than Air', 'Spacecoast Sea Shells', 'Big Red Wagon', 'Turn The Kaleidoscope', 'Dark Eyed Smile', 'Substance Of Fire', 'Boundless Beauty', 'Victorian Christmas', 'Tangerine Horses', and 'Wonders Never Cease'. Those are just a very few...most of what I grow do just as well, as I won't keep poor doers for long. And I certainly don't give any special treatment. They either perform or they are outta here.

That is tough. I wish I could be like that.
The problem is that when you are young your life it is ruined by your parents. When you are older it is ruined by your children.

Oh, wow, awesome update Becky! Hurray! http://garden.org/thread/view_...

Some extremely interesting and pertinent photos and descriptions. I'm just pondering them all for now ... some things I have never seen before, and a great visual education on rust.

Thank You!
