Sighing!

still just scapes over here... Sad

But since yesterday we're having warmer temps, also at night (75F and 55F).
It is supposed to stay warm until at least the end of next week, so perhaps that will give my DL's the boost they need Crossing Fingers!

Betty, love the photos. I am behind in uploading pics, but hope to do it today. We can compare Katherine Caldwell, and Orange Spice. I am sure your photo of OS will be much better than mine, we have had cool nights and I think it affected the opening. Love Little Jet Setter, just got Little Trooper, don't know if it is big enough to bloom, hope so.

Betty - I forgot to tell you how much I love your Little Jet Setter! I recently acquired that one and am now seeing a scape per each fan (double fan received, so two scapes!).

Fred, your picture is just how mine looked all last year -- and in the first year I thought I had a little dip spider with no pattern! And then yesterday I discovered this bloom that I had totally overlooked in the morning and it got rained on -- and it actually had a pattern! So I was thrilled.

Leslie, if you look up LITTLE MUCHA MINTO in our database you'll see how it has looked for several of us, and each time for me it was a little different. In fact, for the first year I was convinced that it was another cultivar entirely. But it's fun now to see what each bloom looks like, now that I know it's definitely LMM.

Curious if you know if that LMM is off the fan I sent you?

This is the first bloom of the season on what is tagged Zagora, I waited all last year for this to show a bloom that actually looked like Zagora, but they never quite looked right. Maybe if I squint both eyes really tight I can see it looking more like Zagora. It is a very productive stout plant, and it has multiplied really well. I have four clumps of it next to each other. Anyone grow Zagora, does it multiply rapidly? Last year by season's end it did develop much better looking blooms.
Thumb of 2016-05-05/Seedfork/fe3816



This des not look like Zagora to me, always has the trumpetish shape, distinct salmon color and dark eye.
It pouts when moved then takes off. Blooms like crazy.


Be happy to send you a few fans to grow beside it.

Lisa

Karen - Thank you. I, sadly, had to change the cultivar in my avatar since the other photo was of a loved seedling that died over the Winter. I can't tell you how disappointed I was to lose it. I had planned to continue to grow it out and then name the seedling after my sister. Now I am back to square one. But I keep telling myself that an even more beautiful seedling will come along.

The bloom you now see in my avatar I believe is called, "Showboat". It's a cactus orchid (actually a succulent plant) that is an Epiphyllum. I received two cuttings of it several years ago and it has finally begun to bloom. I invited my elderly neighbor to see it and she was stunned. It's a day bloomer and has stayed open for two days! Which I didn't know they could do. Typically they only bloom for one day like daylilies. This bloom was probably about 8 1/2" - 10". Bigger than my out-stretched hand! It is even more gorgeous in real life than that photo. I always say when I receive cuttings of epis .... that I HOPE to live long enough to see them bloom.

Yes, James, I believe it is off the plant you sent me! I have my original plant of LMM growing in the ground now and should see the first bloom(s) in the next couple of weeks, hopefully.

SAWYER'S GIGGLES - Love the flat -faced blooms on this daylily!
Thumb of 2016-05-08/Betja/e48a35

This was a gift plant labeled PAINTED PATTERN, which it certainly is not. Does anyone have a clue as to what this daylily is? Would appreciate any help...
Thumb of 2016-05-08/Betja/abbdbd
It's a pretty strange looking bloom!

Edit: I've figured out what it is: WINGED GARGOYLE by Jamie Gossard. I had just looked it up because the same person who sent me this plant just sent me a fan of WINGED GARGOYLE as a gift. And it really is a distinctive looking daylily, I must say!

Becky, I certainly agree with Karen about your avatar. I wish I could see it in person.
Is that the first bloom on your mislabeled one? Maybe it will be easier to ID as it settles in to blooming.

Moon Over Monterey--but there is a surprise here--It's a poly. We have had this DL several years and this is the first time it has ever produced a poly bloom. I had to look closely for I thought something was wrong and then realized what it was.
