Share your best branched tet that has small blooms (mini would work too) .... the taller the better.

Daylilies classified as small have blooms that measure 3 inches or more but less than 4.5 inches in diameter.

At 2.5", this one would be considered a mini ...

Le Petit Saboteur (Hanson-C., 2003)
height 36in (91cm), bloom 2.5in (6.4cm), season E, Rebloom, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, Fragrant, Purple self above chartreuse throat. ((sdlg × Den of Iniquity) × Duke's Daughter)

Well, if taller is better, 'Spacecoast Tiny Perfection' would not rate high on the list. However, I am not sure I would like very tall daylilies with small blooms (could be wrong) I don't have any. But, glad to see it comes with such a high recommendation being I just ordered it a couple of days ago.

Larry, STP seems perfectly proportioned in my eyes. Kinnebrew certainly named it well.

Well, of course when we're talking about the small ones I cannot have just one favorite -- I have three!

MIX AND MATCH

FIESTA FLIRT

The first two have registered bloom size at 4.5", but the blooms are smaller here, more like 3.75" to 4", so I'm including them anyway.

I like Mix and Match, fancy for a small one!
Agree completely with Le Petit Saboteur and Burning Hot Spot, both are super here. Another one of Curt's I like is Little Bo Peep Diploma (parents are LPS X BHS)


Share a Little is 33", not real tall... but not short either. Has nice branching and is loaded with buds during bloom season.

"Little Bo Peep Diploma" and "Share a Little" were new here last year, lovely photos Char.

Nice small tets seem to be scarce.

Curt Hanson has one that looks interesting in his new catalog. BACHELOR KISSES.....32" scapes with 4 and 5 way branching from CHAOTIC SYMMETRY X SHARE A LITTLE, fertile both ways. No flower size listed, but it HAS to be little coming from a 3" parent unfortunately for me it's most likely an evergreen. (that info is missing too)
