Sadly, this plant has not done well for me. After having it for 2 years, it is the same size as it was when I received it--2 fans. I recently moved it so that it receives more water and a little less sunlight (it had sun ALL day), so hopefully that will help. It has not bloomed since I have owned it. Sad

If I notice changes, I will update my post.

I grew this one only for a couple of years. It was one I got with the hopes of rebloom. Mine never looked as pretty for me with the colors appearing a little muddy to me, and I had no rebloom. It was a slow grower for me. While I did not hate this daylily when someone asked me for some it I happily sent it off to new home.

I just received two fans from an ebay order. It looks so pretty and I was hoping for blooms next spring, but based on Claudia and Regina's experience I may have to wait a bit longer. Angry

I received mine in the fall....I think. It did bloom the following year. But I am zone 5b so that might or might not make a difference.

I had it for many years until I moved recently. It usually underwelmed me. It's increase was slow to moderate, the color for me was cream with a burgundyish purple eye. The last 2 years the flowers looked their best. I never recorded size or budcount, but, Mine did get around 25" tall and flowers were around or under 6" if I had to guess. The best thing I liked about it was the form of the flower, usually ruffled, pinched , and somewhat recurved.

Sabine Baur is very attractive but, unfortunately, the deer think so, too. This is the first year it actually had a nice show but I don't measure height, count buds or take note of branching since we never get the performance from a daylily, here in zone 7a, that others in warmer zones get.

I planted SB late last spring, it had four scapes this year, all much shorter than registered height. The bud count was also much lower, but that seems typical for most Daylilies here. From expieriance, I am sure the plant will perform better next year, and I did really like the blooms. Blooms ranged from dark wine/burgundy to purple, and form was a surprise every bloom, with many being pinched. Plant is to new to give any reliable stats or even an over all performance rating.

SABINE BAUR has always been a weak plant for me,but it is a good parent I have seedlings from it that are pretty plus they are hardy.

This is the second year i have had the pleasure of growing Sabine Baur and in my meager garden of 130 cultivar it is one of the show stoppers. I got maybe 15 buds from a 2 fan start and 20 inch height. If i had to go down to ten plants Sabine Baur would be one of them.
When i start crossing one of these years she will come in handy. And thank you Boyd Banks for letting me know it will not be time wasted. Thumbs up

When I first got Sabine Baur it was short on bloom and didn't increase much. It might have been the -40 degrees winter we had for the first couple of winters after I got it or it might have been the soil. I had decided I would give it one more year and if it didn't do better I wouldn't keep it. So I moved it to another spot, added some black dirt and compost to the soil, and made more of an effort to keep it watered. It took off and grew and bloomed beautifully. It has continued to grow and increase and it had lots of blooms this year.
Thumb of 2015-08-18/4susiesjoy/d8112b It is in the front of the photo, if you enlarge it you can see all the buds and blooms.


Thumb of 2015-08-18/4susiesjoy/840aac It recurves a lot by the end of the day but this is right away in the morning when it had just opened.

did not grow for me, looked frumpy, crumply, melted and worn out most of the time. Tossed it on compost!

I grew it for a few years and underwhelming about sums it up. I sold it hoping it would do better for someone else. Looks better in photos than it ever did for me.

Sabine Baur hasn't done well for me. This is the first year in my garden. I think it was in too much shade. Plan on moving it next spring. Continue to be Hopeful.

As much as I like Salter daylilies this one never did what it should have, I bought it twice and both just struggled here on the Gulf Coast (zone 9).

Sabine Bauer did not do well for me either. It sulked and never increased. I had it for 8 years which is plenty enough time for it to settle in but it just never improved. It left my garden last year.

This is disheartening....it looks so pretty. I love the color combination of cream and purple. I guess I will be looking at other cultivars with those colors.
