Hello,
I have noticed that the few Daylilies that have regular rebloom here, are often so late, that the cold temps really affect the blooms negatively. I had one plant that had instant rebloom last year, and since the rebloom was instant, the temps were still warm enough, that the blooms looked as good as the original blooms. I would greatly appreciate for any of you to share what Daylilies have had instant rebloom for you. I believe the instant rebloom, is when rebloom scapes appear before the original scapes are done blooming. I have purchased several Daylilies this past winter, that are registered as having instant rebloom, but I am sure that many Daylilies have this feature, but are not registered as such.

Thanks in advance,
Gale

I have some doing that this year.

Lillian's Vapor Trail had two scapes with their first blooms today and the original scapes are still blooming, though they are nearing the end.

Cinnamon Faces put on a new scape while the original was still blooming. That scape aborted, but I think that plant isn't strong enough to support it yet. It was a single fan the size of a fat pencil last year.

Buddy's Wild and Wonderful has four scapes more than half as tall as the original four, which should finish blooming this next week I think. The new ones probably won't overlap with the first scapes, but they won't miss it far.

Marked By Lydia finished up six scapes early this week, but there are two new scapes that will probably start blooming next week. I'm greedy and hoping for some more new ones Smiling .

Dreams Come Through has a new scape half as tall as a scape still blooming. It will probably be blooming by the latter part of next week or maybe the early part of the week after that.

Prickly Sensation is also rebloom. If not instant, pretty darn close to it.

Check out Springwood Gardens http://www.springwoodgardens.com/daylilies.html. Karol has quite a few introductions that have instant rebloom here in Minnesota. I have some of her daylilies that have the instant rebloom and they do rebloom in my garden.

My Ruby Stellas exhibited instant rebloom while young. On and on again.

The divisions 7-8-10 years old are on, on again, and a late bloom. They still start to bloom when yellow Stellas are fading off their first big show. Few blooms as late as November last year. Not bad for running since the last week of June, not bad at all. It would be interesting to know the parent plants.

More a study than a fan but, there is a day coming where I use many of each in the same bed just to see what kind of show they can put on. One problem with Ruby is no AHS info as it's copyrighted instead of a listed hybrid. One DG post claims it's any generic small red the nursery needs to tag but I disagree. All I've grown (from 2 nurseries) exhibit identical traits. The bloom is almost 100% identical to "Pardon Me". Foliage, growth, branching, and bloom times convince me they're not one in the same.

They're fairly mundane as far as daylilies go but they do excel with age which I've found interesting compared to some varieties that prefer frequent division for best bloom/presence/effect.

Gale, they are El Shaddai, Banner of Love, Cup of Cold Water (favorite last year). I know she has more that have instant rebloom. I added Thistles and Thorns this year which will also have instant rebloom. I know some of these are no longer available on her site, not sure if she still carries all of her introductions for sale and holds them for increase. You may be able to find some on the Lily Auction.

Before I cleaned things up, I thought I'd try to get photos of those with rebloom scapes. I'm not clear on what constitutes instant rebloom, but these scapes seem to have arrived quickly.

Lillian's Vapor Trail. In a perfect world there would have been one more initial scape and one more rebloom scape, but hail got the first and either grasshoppers or katydids got the latter. I didn't deadhead prior to the photo. The bloom today is on an initial scape, the dead blooms from yesterday are from both.

Buddy's Wild and Wonderful. The first scape to finish is the one turning brown, but the last three blooms on the initial scapes are blooming today. You can see the four new scapes aren't too far away from bloom. The scape showing on the right is another DL. All the new scapes are showing under the blooms.
Thumb of 2015-06-12/needrain/3d3bfc

Dreams Come Through. One more bud to go on the original scape and you can see the stage of the rebloom stalk for comparison.
Thumb of 2015-06-12/needrain/d99452

Marked By Lydia. The five visible original scapes (one more was taken out by hail) are turning brown. There are only two rebloom scapes so far, so I guess not all are going to rebloom.

Here is Marked By Lydia with the first rebloom scape blooming

Lillian's Vapor Trail. The rebloom scapes aren't going to reach the height of the first scapes. The tall one in the photo is the last bloom on the initial scapes. Those rebloom stalks are really going to make the bloom season a lot longer in duration. The scapes will straighten up, I think, when the wind knocks all the water off the blooms. Provided the wind doesn't keep them leaning. It's the reason they are leaning in the first place and it's pretty stiff this morning.

I'll add Galaxy Explosion to the list. I was cleaning old leaves and found two rebloom scapes. All the initial scapes are still blooming. This rebloomed last summer, but there was a short pause between the appearance of the rebloom scapes and the initial scapes. They showed up last year after I had removed the old scapes (at least those that didn't have pods on them).

Galaxy Explosion has rebloomed for me as has Heartbeat of Heaven and Thomas Lee, an older one. I don't usually get much rebloom here but I welcome it when it happens. With all the rain this spring and summer maybe I will get more rebloom.

Assuming reasonable growing conditions are met, I would think successful rebloom would be a combination of genetics, climate and length of the growing season. Climate would include all those things like rainfall, humidity, temperature. Instant rebloom should work better in areas with shorter growing seasons than rebloom with a space required by the plant between initial bloom and rebloom. A few years ago I was given an old style yellow daylily that had been grown by someone's mother for a long time. It bloomed well in late spring/early summer and then rebloomed in October. I asked the person who gave it to me and they couldn't recall that it had ever done that, but the growing season they had was shorter than mine is here. It was a nice thing and I regretted when the deer ate it to oblivion. So far, none of those that rebloomed for me on the current daylilies have waited that long to send up scapes. Sept and Oct would be nice rebloom timing in most years. I think as we get hotter and drier, any rebloom won't look as nice as initial bloom. That happened to the Galaxy Explosion rebloom last year. It succeeded, but the blooms weren't particularly attractive. By mid-July in a normal year the heat is going to be a factor.

I'm a little late to add to this thread, I know there is a list here somewhere of the reblooming daylilies from last year...I just can't find the darn thing *Blush* With the short season I get very little rebloom and not many that are consistent year to year.
These three are consistent instant rebloomers and easy for me to remember... Smiling







We have a short growing season here too and the early cold weather doesn't allow the later season blooms to open or close properly. Along with instant rebloomers you might also consider budbuilders. Here is a link to a thread about budbuilders....

I agree Donald.

I found out from a customer down south that purchased several of my registered daylilies that they rebloomed for her. I was kind of jealous because they never ever rebloomed for me. I guess our growing season is not long enough. I have noticed that springs where we have an unusual amount of rain can trigger some rebloom in plants that otherwide wouldn't.

Then in a lot of Texas folks may see more rebloom than they are accustomed to seeing. However, I grow all mine in containers. Large containers, true, but I think any container situation is not the same as ground plants. I don't really think extra rain in the spring would last long enough to help with rebloom in a container grown plant. It sure helps with keeping them watered, but I quickly had to resume with the schedule of supplemental water. If they had been in the ground in good beds, that wouldn't have been necessary. I think you could add container grown vs. in ground growth to one of the variables for rebloom. Those I'm seeing it on this year are in the containers for their second season now. A couple did it the first season, but it's new for the others.

Yes, a container plant does dry out quicker. I have all of my herbs in containers and they seem to need a lot of watering.

But a container plant only shares water with the roots in the container. That allows for control. An in ground plant here would be sharing the same amount of water with oak trees and assorted other vegetation. When the moisture is supplied with generous rainfall, it lasts for a while. When in ground plantings get supplemental water, the competition can be fierce since it's only covering a small area relative to all the other thirsty plants around it that aren't getting the extra. It doesn't last as long and sometimes other things get more benefit than the intended target. In a year or so, the competition becomes uneven. What might have started well may decline. With any kind of water rationing, the control weakens because you can't provide enough to account for the competition for the moisture. Probably never an issue in areas with consistent regular rainfall.
