touchofsky said:I have Precious de Oro, Ken, and my plant has a much shorter scape and the bloom is much creamier, not as yellow. I will be curious to see what yours looks like when it is settled in the ground.


Me too! I THINK the extra scape height was from it being on the bottom of a clearance rack for a while and stretching to get some sun. When I say it was crowded in its pot, I mean CROWDED. As in, almost zero soil and full of roots. I ended up breaking it in thirds to re-pot it...and that required a root saw when my garden knife proved too gentle.

It's one I am curious about. I've read much on here about tissue culturing, and how the scapes are often much taller, but I can't imagine someone TCing Precious de Oro. I mean, it's not new and it's not very remarkable from what I can tell. That said, it is Dutch and I've read that some growers in the Netherlands do TC quite a bit.

If I give it the clay corner treatment, it will be dry (on an incline, under a dogwood, bordered by a driveway and a sidewalk). Can it take drought-like conditions?

Spent part of my lunch hour looking at this thread. Lotsa beauties! Picket Fences, Phenomenal Phoenix, Please Say Yes, Primal Scream, and of course, Persian Ruby is a beaut!

Char, I like the way Pawprints on My Heart has space between the petals. I want to say the word "whimsical" when I see blooms like that.

Jill, I have Purple Tarantula, but will have to check it out this year for those white midribs. I just love this one!

Tim, that is a gorgeous picture of Phill Warbasse:)

Shirlee, your pictures of Pirate's Prism and Purple Swordfish are awesome looking:)


I guess I didn't participate in some of these threads years ago. I need to get some 'P's on here!

My garden is quite dry because of my sandy soil, and Precious de Oro has done well, with no extra pampering. I do water my daylilies during bad droughts, though.

It could just be reaching for the light. I would wait and see how it responds to being planted in the ground and getting good light.

Mike, Valerie, & Ken...thanks for the nice comments!

For me, one of the many benefits of this forum is seeing photos of all the wonderful daylilies, some I've had in my own garden, some I remember from other gardens (and I'm seeing new beauties too!). Seeing daylilies from the past brings up plenty of memories - where I first saw the daylily, whose garden it was in...sometimes even seeing it in the hybridizer's garden. And I'm remembering other things too; how these daylilies performed, what traits make/made them special, whether they caused a "sensation" when first introduced, and even the friendships I had with others who were enthusiastic about the same daylilies as I. And being a hybridizer, I especially remember those I've used as parents and why.

Thanks to all for the wonderful photos and information!
