I have Waves of Joy which has one of the Kaleidoscopes as a parent. Dragonfly Dawn, the other parent, is beside it. Even understanding that WOJ is new, it's not nearly as vigorous as DD. I'm in a super mild climate with no freezing. I'm on the eastern side of the county and Trimmer is on the western side. Hope WOJ flourishes here!

Arlene, I hope WOJ does well for you too and also for me as it is new for me this year.
I'm beginning to question my choices.

Leslie, T. Peppermint Delight was a skimpy grower for me. Thought I was going to lose it. I have moved it to a location that is south of the house, and it is doing better. Noticed that today.
For the same reason, I moved Sarah Starchak and Polar Dusk to the same location. They too
seem to be improving. Microclimates, gotta love 'em.

Becky,
I thought of you when I was in the garden today. I was checking plants to note early spring growth. Cosmic Kaleidoscope is growing like crazy! Maybe it heard what I said about some of it's kin.

Leslie - Oh good for you! That's wonderful!! I hope you will share photos when it blooms. How long have you had it in your garden?

I always think of that old saying .... "First year plants sleep, Second year plants creep, and third year plants leap!" Perhaps that is true of some daylilies, too! Smiling

Becky,
I just got it last year from Mark Sattelmeier. We'll see how it does after a year or two but I'm encouraged so far. I will take pics!

I moved almost everything in my garden last year. It is interesting to see what has just taken off this spring.

All about location it appears! I am excited for you. THAT is a beautiful cultivar, for sure! Might make a dynamite parent, too!
