Beautiful Edgings is one of my favorites. It was given to me five years ago and has increased to a nice big clump now with several fans. It is a good bloomer but have never had it to rebloom. No problem with blooms opening perfectly.

I have to agree with Debra on this one. Maybe BE just doesn't like the extended heat we both have. In fact, I've had trouble keeping her alive. I'm not positive she's going to make it here. Sad

I planted this beauty last June. It's last bloom was a snowy mid October day. Plant has increased by 3 fans and it's ready to perform again. Scapes are tall and can lean. It's a keeper!

I acquired 3 fans of Beautiful Edgings in July 2015 upon which time it was potted up until transplanting into a raised bed in October 2015. It bloomed for the first time in early June (2016) through early July. It has a taller scape than most of my other daylilies. Though I don't remember recording stats on it. It produces elegant blooms that are very pod and pollen fertile (which is one of the reason I was interested in obtaining it). It has produced 2 more fans making it a small clump of 5 fans currently. It seems to be rust resistant as there are rusty plants in the same raised bed yet no rust on it's leaves.

First bloom was smaller and showed a very slight pink edging:

Later blooms showed that the edging disappeared all together. I believe it has to do with the heat factor here. You can see all the pods it set in this photo.:

I received a compact clump of 13 fans from a NGA member on October 27, 2016. It is planted in a different raised bed than my other smaller clump of Beautiful Edgings. The member I got the larger clump from lives in Idaho (zone 7a). Interestingly, it bloomed very early, on February 23, 2017:

Stats on newer 13 clump from Idaho:

This same clump re-bloomed again on May 31, 2017 through middle of June:


Photo taken on June 5th. Blooms turn more yellow by the afternoon. Bloom holds up well in full sun, but the bloom tends to droop downward as the day goes on:

On June 25, 2017, the other clump in a different raised bed began to bloom. I believe this is probably the "normal" bloom time frame for my zone 9b/10a:

Besides the drooping afternoon blooms, the scapes sometimes lean because the flowers are too heavy to hold them upright. It is VERY pod and pollen fertile. I love this plant and am trying to hybridize it with another tall cultivar with a stronger scape. It also seems to be rust resistant, which is a big plus here in Florida.

This daylily is the reason we had to go to a shared plant database. We purchased it about 6 different times, only to get home and realize we have have it in multiple locations. It is beautiful daylily, it has no problem staying upright for us and is a quick grower. BTW we use Plant Step now and export it to an excel spreadsheet we use on our phones when we are traveling and our shopping for daylilies.

I did love Beautiful Edgings when I had it in my garden. However it did not survive here. I had it in a pot which may have been a factor in it dying off. I had it for several years and it bloomed but not particularly well. The flowers were gorgeous and the edge was very pink in my garden. It died of crown rot one Spring due to big swings in temperature (late freezes). I've chosen not to replace it because it never did that well for me and I purchased another daylily with similar coloration that performs better.

I did hybridize using BE and in 2019 I had my first seedling bloom. I must say it does produce gorgeous seedlings!
