In a few weeks the AHS will announce the winner of the 2014 Stout Silver Medal, the highest honor a daylily can receive. Thought it might be fun for ATP members to vote for their favorite daylily on the 2014 ballot and later, when the award is announced, see if we agree with the AHS garden judges. Which ones do you grow? How do they perform for you? Which ones are your favorites? ..... If you were to give a medal to one of the 34 daylilies on the ballot (pictured below) which one would it be?

It's curious to me that 'Hyperion' is on the ballet. It's now been registered for 100 years. Daylilies don't age out of eligibility? I think that's a good thing, but I'm surprised.

Each year the Awards Committee may add up to 10 cultivars to the HM section of the ballot. The vast majority of those were from deceased hybridizers. Many of those put on the HM ballot during my time as Awards chair (2008-2011) not only won the HM, but also the AM, and are now on the Stout ballot. Hyperion, Red Ribbons, Look Here Mary, Webster's Pink Wonder were all added by. A& H and now are in the running for the Stout!

Also it appears 'Hyperion' is shows susceptibility to rust, but I guess that doesn't count.

BASS GIBSON. I really like HEARTBEAT OF HEAVEN, but I think Karol has better plants which are more worthy of the medal.

Thank you, Julie. That seems to be a good system for recognizing plants that may not have been widely known when they were first distributed.

They are all susceptible to rust at this point just to varying degrees.

I grow four of these: BASS GIBSON, LINDA BECK, WISPY RAYS and WONDER OF IT ALL, and I love them all. But I immediately knew that the one I would vote for is WONDER OF IT ALL. Even though it's listed as a Dormant it behaves as an Evergreen for me, never losing its foliage, whereas BASS GIBSON does totally die back each winter. And LINDA BECK just doesn't bloom enough for me for some reason. My second choice would be WISPY RAYS because it's so colorful and, even though I don't remember ever getting any rebloom, the blooms are fantastic. But WONDER OF IT ALL is a real trooper and sends up beautiful blooms no matter how much I neglect it, so it gets my vote -- plus the blooms are always almost perfect.

Did you want us to vote on the ones pictured? I grow several but others I would just like to grow. Funny, I thinking of making a Stout winner bed. Good info at the AHS page?

If not this year, I think Bass Gibson is a sure winner at some point.
It seemed to really ring in the teeth 'boom'.

My vote is for Wonder Of It All. I only got it this year, but it is by far my favorite so far.

I grow Bass Gibson, Heartbeat of Heaven, Intelligent Design, Laura Harwood, Mabou, Margo Reed Indeed, Rock Solid, Shores of Time, Stella's Ruffled Fingers, Symphony of Praise, Webster's Pink Wonder, Wispy Rays and Wonder of it All for a total of 13. Intelligent Design and Mabou are my favorites some of the others have not yet established well in my garden as they have not been here that long.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

There are 11 of the nominees growing in the garden....

BALI WATERCOLOR - grows well, beautiful bloom, branching and budcount are low.
BASS GIBSON - saw this in a friends garden last year and loved it. Newly planted this year and will wait until next year to evaluate after it goes through a winter here.
GAVIN PETIT- Nice dark eye but branching/budcount are very low.
HYPERION- a long time favorite and one of my 3 picks for award consideration.
JERRY HYATT - awesome flower and plant. Always makes visitors stop to admire the large blooms ( me too!). Second cultivar considered for the award.
LINDA BECK- blooms are beautiful, open nicely, low budcount/branching.
ROCK SOLID- great northern grower, blooms open well, increases nicely, branching and budcount. Third one on my short list for consideration.
SHORES OF TIME - another good northern daylily with pretty clear pink blooms. Does not open well for me on the cooler mornings.
WEBSTER'S PINK WONDER - Huge bloom, scapes are strong enough to hold the large blooms upright without being over done and clumsy. Budcount and branching are not as good as some others on the list.
WISPY RAYS - Love this one! The color screams at you from a distance, big bloom, grows well for me, nice in a clump, low budcount.
WONDER OF IT ALL- This one is gorgeous when it opens well. Unfortunately the edge hangs up on more than the majority of the blooms for me.

Four grew here but have left the garden for various reasons...
BETTY FORD, BRER RABBIT'S BABY, RED RIBBONS and VELVET RIBBONS.

From my short list of Hyperion, Jerry Hyatt and Rock Solid...
I vote for Jerry Hyatt.

Her best bloomers and Velvet Ribbons are a tie for me. They both perform so well for me with the horrid neglect I give them. This was my first year for Bass gibson, so hard to judge it on only one season.
It's my cats world, I'm just here to open the cans.

Jerry Hyatt, as much because I know the backstory as because it is beautiful.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
