mom2cjemma said:So far it looks like I have lost 3 plants of the 60 something new plants that I added last year.

EVER SO SOFTLY (X2 plants, same garden, different areas)
DARINGLY DIFFERENT

The 3 that I lost were all in the same flower bed and it is obvious that they aren't returning. We had such a mild winter and almost everything in this garden, either didn't totally die off, or already has fans that are 4-8 inches tall. I find it weird that both of the Ever so Softly plants died. I am pretty confident that they are both gone since one clump of dead and rotted stuff came up when I picked up the tag to check the name................

I am going to let the grower know about the Ever so Softly, because I noticed on their website in the description of EsS that because of the parentage that they were hoping that it would be hardy in the north. Maybe it isn't quite that hardy in zone 5b.


The seller is going to replace both of the ESS when he ships me my order next month! Hurray! Hurray!

Crown rot was a problem in autumn.

GLOW MONSTER, an Australian cultivar, all gone.


A clump of JUST CELEBRATE deaded - but I had a saviour clump but it tried to rot as well but I have saved 4 of its fans (touch wood).


One of my waxy seedlings out of Milanese Mango rotted but - fingers crossed - one fan has made it through. Crying

Edit next day. Added a photo of the waxy one.

I wonder if some cultivars are more prone to crown rot than others?

Becky, yes, I was wondering about Just Celebrate. And I was surprised I couldn't save at least one fan of Glow Monster.

I lost 2 - S/C irish illumination and Choral Fantasy will replace irish illumination but Choral Fantasy never did do that much here, as is the problem that I have with about 1/2 of the Maryott's cultivars. but I love the bagel forms the best and the faces with all the ruffles and edges that he is able to get on his just begs me to keep them around in the garden

I'm not certain your response to bluegrassmom's quote came through... Unless it was placed inside the quote?

Moonlight Mist is a goner for sure. I dug around but nothing was there. I loved it but it never did well this far north.

I haven't had the heart to look at all the others that faded away in the Spring. I'm hopeful, but if I don't see any new growth by the end of July I'll have to start digging them up.

I'm sorry to hear that Sad

Being that this is only my second season growing daylilies, I haven't experienced many losses yet, but I'm wondering what the typical loss percentage is, averaged out among most daylily growers. I wonder if most losses occur because of cultivars that someone took a chance on, knowing that...say, it's an evergreen that no one else up north grows, but it's worth taking the risk to try it out up north....versus things like varieties that are just inherently weak and succumb to the first disease or other ailment that sets upon it.

I would guess most people don't experience as much loss as I do. If your winters are really cold, everything goes dormant. If they are warm, everything acts as an evergreen. We used to have really cold winters but now the weather seems to be changing. Seem to be getting longer, warmer spells followed by shorter spells of frigid temps. Anything not in the ground AND not established is apt to suffer. I mourn some but the truth is I'm a wimp when it comes to culling plants so Mother Nature does it for me. Sticking tongue out And it does free up space for seedlings!
