|I saw some of the leaves are yellow, is this normal ?|
Apr 20, 2016 3:58 PM CST
|Yes. It happens when you dig and ship the plants. It's a good looking shipment.|

Yellowing of the leaves is normal when the plants have been in shipment for a few days. The weather during the time of shipping has a lot to do with it also. Too, I think some shippers prefer to let the plants dry out a day or so before shipping in order to avoid rot. So the nearer the vendor and the less time your plants have to spend in a hot delivery vehicle and the less time they have to spend drying in order to avoid rot, the greener the plants will look on arrival and the less time they will need for recovery.
But those are great looking plants and roots.

|Very nice looking order. Do they sell on the LA too? I am always leary of bidding on someone I don't know. I think I have seen a Morningstar list auctions.|
You will be pleased with those you have selected!

|Thank you Theresa, I don't buy in the LA, this is actually my very first time buying Daylily online and I dont remember how I found Morningstar probably saw it here. Mary is great and always answer her emails...|

|I love your cat pic. Here is one I took today of Lucy in the flower pot. Thankfully, we haven't planted any annuals yet!|

|Thank you Theresa, Lucy is so cute !!!|
Those are my double trouble, the one of the left actually one month young his name is Cass (short for Casper) and the girl on the right is Suzette/Susie...they are almost 2 years old and I also have a Senior/11 yrs old mixed Ragdoll that I adopted from my Vet...They are some characters and of course old Snowie is always cranky
Suz always try to eat/chew any flowers/leaves I tried to put indoors when it freezed (Thanks God nothing poisonous) even my succulent got some teeth marks..
We put two little ones on time out for about 10 days now, no more playing outside for awhile, since we caught them tried to catch/kill lizzard and garden snake in the backyard..

|Hi javaMom, I am brand new to Garden.org but certainly not to gardening and day lilies are my favorites. Your order does look beautiful. I have Wild Horses which I ordered from Oakes Day Lilies in Tennessee along with several other species of day lilies they offer over the years. I'm on the hunt for more but hope to find some from either other gardeners here or suggestions of nurseries by gardeners like yourself. Did you say you found Morningstar through Garden.org? |
Happy planting. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the babies once they are blooming.

Welcome and glad to meet you here, Barbalee is one of my Texas gardening buddy...we both are new in this site and really like it ! If you look at the Classified and group buy (which unfortunately I only saw after I placed my order) there are ATP/NatGard.org member selling some of their daylilies with great selection and great prices... Since I'm new with daylilies, how I picked mine is, first have to love how it looks (love pink, purple, red etc) most of my choices are awards winner, a lot of people have it (so I think they must be pretty good) and because of my zone, I picked Evergreen or Semievergreen leaves, and I tried to stay away from ones with Rust susceptibility... I am a little sore but all the daylilies are in the bed and in a couple days I will received my second order from Oakhill Daylilies...
Thanks and have a wonderful Spring !

|Welcome to the Daylily forum! I love Wild Horses, I just wish mine would increase faster.|

|My Wild Horses that I received from MS are kind of a lot smaller and skinnier than other daylilies fans... Does it has skinnier or thinner leaves Teresa ?|
I have a three daylilies that I got a long time ago from Lowe's/Home Depot I think, they blooms every year but they never increased, the only one that got bigger is the Stella or Happy REturns (not sure which one) I got potted from Lowe's they increase some, not that much but they got bigger...

|Yes, mine are also smaller fans. Some of my diploids are large but not my Wild Horses.|
