I obviously don't have any yet, but I would love:
sci-fi
fantasy
arachnids (anything spidery Hilarious! )
movies/series
cats and dogs



You list is very similar to mine! (I have a dog theme area, too, but it's based off of the names of my dogs...I have two 'Ginger Twist' and 'Ginger Cookie' for my dog, Ginger; I have 'Crazy Miss Daisy' for my other dog, and I've been trying to add more for 'Daisy', but haven't found any yet.)

...I'll be there's a ton of places.....start with CTDaylilies at: http://www.ctdaylily.com/price... ...they have a LOT of cultivars.

Off the top of my head, I think you should be able to easily find:
Big Dog
Pawprints on My Heart
Paw Print
(There's a place that had several cat-related cultivars...it might have been Valley of the Daylilies....? I'd have to check.)
Ruby Spider (one of my favorites!!)
Wilson Spider
Ferengi Gold
Notify Ground Crew...


If you don't have those, you should be able to find them inexpensively at a lot of places.

A few more for a "Dog Bed"....
Unconditional Love
Pick of the Litter
Bark at Me
Mom's Pet
Francis of Assisi
Puppydog Kisses

Bret Clement has a lot of funny "cat" named daylilies and may have been who you were thinking of.

I've always wanted a "Zoo" bed with the different animal named daylilies, maybe someday.

Valerie and NancyB. Unfortunately when we moved the raccoons got into all of the pots and I lost a lot of markers. Most of the daylilies were not marked and I am missing a lot of names. If anyone can identify them I would appreciate it.

@Char - nice find! I wish could say that was what I was thinking of, but I don't recognize the site. It may have been someone who has their older intros, though..

@legalily - Welcome! to NGA!
you could start a new thread with pictures, asking people to help you ID your plants. The more information you can give, the better.

I would love those! Thumbs up

And some for my dog Bella ('Bella Isabella' and 'Bella Sera' Lovey dubby ) and my dog Puck ('Puck' and 'Windham Puck')!

Unfortunately I can't buy DL's in the USA, and a lot of cultivars are not available here in Europe.
But still, there are probably more than I have room for in my new allotment Hilarious!

Oh, Mayo, I'm sorry. I forgot about the international thing. Bummer. Hmm....You could always take a trip to the US and smuggle some back, LoL! Just kidding. Rolling my eyes. There are some DL sellers that will ship internationally with phyto certificates, but is your country more particular about not importing American plants, do you know? It might come down to how badly you want certain cultivars, it could get quite pricey. Sad

CT will ship Internationally with a $25 phytosanitary certificate fee and minimum $250 order. Might be worth some time to research other U.S. vendors shipping to Europe to see if there are any with a lower minimum purchase. Smiling

DnDL and Debra,

the problem isn't the Phyto, but the inspection on this side of the ocean Thumbs down

I would have to pay for the inspection of all plants and as soon as there is the slightest suspicion all plants are destroyed ... Crying

I'm not risking my money nor any beautifull DL's!

I Don't have theme gardens, but have DL's for my family

Flycatcher X Heavenly Curls is for my youngest daughter. She runs around with a fly swatter and her natural curls are so heavenly that God had some left over to give to *me*, after she was born! Also Wild and Wonderful Lovey dubby

Thumb of 2016-06-28/bloominholes2fill/ee1dc1



Electric Lizard and Arachnidan Trap are for our eldest daughter. We have two children and they are polar opposites Lovey dubby I told her that when she is living on her own, I won't set foot in her house if such creatures are running amuck! My specimens haven't bloomed yet. Electric Lizard probably won't for two years, but Arachnidan Trap has a (short) scape for my FFE

Zoro's Blade and Mystic Pizza are for my husband. Pizza is a staple for him. He argues that it has all four food groups. Never mind the grease! Lovey dubby He loves red. Mystic Pizza may not bloom til next year.

I don't have mine pulled together for a theme but I have enough to have a
Biblical bed, many of Carol Emmerich names would work well. Today, Rock of Salvation is blooming!


I could also do a theme about Sci Fi

Another bed could be the titles of songs.

One friend has a bed with a horse theme. She got Hold Your Horses and Wild Horses from me. Hurray!

Without even looking I feel sure Curt Hanson would have many cultivars to fit that theme.
