Prior to building this house in 1992, I had many gardens, but only had the old fashioned orange, yellow and bronzy red unnamed daylilies. I was more into iris at my previous garden.
When we moved here the iris grower, had a section of daylilies in their catalogue, so I decided to order a few named varieties of daylily when I put in my iris order. The first order was four plants. They were Darius, Red Fountain, Cape Cod and Shadyside. I still have all four, although Cape Cod has been lost in a shady area of the property. We did some tree thinning and there is more sun there now, and if the daylily clumps growing in that area bloom, I hope to be able to find Cape Cod.
The next order the following year was for some "pinkish" cultivars. At that time most of the pinks available were more peach than pink. That order was for Sea Gold, Date Book, Close Up and Green Glade. Green Glade was sold out and they substituted Doll House. They added a gift of Radiant Greetings.
I still have all of these varieties in my garden beds, except for Radiant Greetings. It didn't fit my colour schemes and I put it in a plant sale.
I still enjoy those original cultivars!
