Finally got caught up on a few projects this weekend....

"E" was interesting, the first thing that popped into my head was Everybody Loves Earnest. A nice mini that I've been meaning to add to the garden for several years.


The Edge No Eye pattern in daylilies is not one I see up my way very often. Last year I added Willow Dean Smith to the garden and would like to find more that do well in the north.


The last one is Evergreen. A few of my favorites that have been hardy and growing well in the garden for a number of years are...

"E" for me would be Evergreen, I am slowly (for now) moving to more Evergreen plants.

Spanish Sketch is one of the top Evergreens on my want list.

Extra Large Diameter - described by AHS as: "A daylily cultivar which has been registered with a bloom size of 7 inches or greater but which is not registered in a specific form category (double, spider, unusual form, polymerous, sculpted) by the hybridizer."

With that description, I have many that have blooms 6.0-6.5 inches and a few that are 7 or more, but most are listed in a specific form category (i.e., Back Scratcher, Lady Neva, Give Me Eight, Ruby Spider, and a few others).

Here are a few that I have that do not have any of the specific forms listed, so maybe these fall into the "Extra Large Diameter" category.

Newberry Festival
(Rushing, 1987)
height 25in (64cm), bloom 7in (18.0cm), season EM, Dormant,, Fragrant, Rose self with green throat. (Cherry Festival × Rose Swan)


Red Volunteer
(Oakes, 1984)
height 30in (76cm), bloom 7in (18.0cm), season M, Dormant, Tetraploid, Clear candle red self with gold yellow throat.


Thunder and Blazes
(Kirchhoff-D., 1997)
height 28in (71cm), bloom 7in (18.0cm), season EE, Rebloom, Evergreen, Tetraploid, Yellow with a wine eyezone and gold edge above a chartreuse throat. ((Celestial Peach × (sdlg × Registration 1998).(D7))) × (Celestial Peach × Registration 1998).(L3)))


Noel Weston
(Shooter, 1995)
height 28in (71cm), bloom 8in (20.5cm), season M, Rebloom, Dormant, Diploid, Pink cream blend with green throat. (Super Valentine × Becky Lynn)

For me E would be extra early,early and extra late bloom since I live in the north with short summers. I like to cover all the bloom periods from extra early thru extra late to have a longer bloom season. A few of my extra early season are Early Shirley, Fern Stone and Stella's Ruffled Fingers.

Thumbs up on Edge no Eyes daylilies. Lovey dubby I like that look better than most daylilies with both edges AND eyes, to be honest.

I just saw my first bloom on my plant of 'Willow Dean Smith' last year. Lovey dubby Also on 'Pacific Shamrock'.



I am also putting in a Thumbs up for EMO

EXT blooms

Evaluating an iris seedling, hopefully for rebloom

Thumbs up Thumbs up for EMO's. Thought of that one as I was getting into bed last night. Love seeing the EMO's when I hop out of bed during bloom season at 5:30 - 6 in the morning!!!

I don't know off hand what EMO's I have, but I know it is very nice to go out at 6am and see what's open before I have to go to work. After I get home at 4:30pm, sometimes the sun has really washed some of the daylilies out and the pictures just aren't very nice. Retirement in a couple of years will change all that Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
