Well, good news and bad. I thought I had reached my goal of 200 named varieties, but realized by a physical count that that number listed in my plant list was wrong because it included all my NOIDs . So even with the 16 new plants I have ordered for the spring, I will still be only up to 192. So the good news is I can still add a few more in the fall, the bad news is patterns are normally pretty new so the prices are normally a little higher than my 10-15 dollar range.
I want plants that are not just pretty faces but that are good garden plants for zone 8b, and are not too subject to getting rust. I am currently in the process of adding plants with a little extra height, being I had so many that were pretty short(under 30 inches). Also I have been adding plants with higher bud counts and more branching, so all those traits would be a bonus.
Any recommendations?

Larry I would love to give some advice, but I am new to patterns myself. I have only recently started to acquire some of these and a few seed with pattern parents.

I grow Awakening Spirit


It's not the biggest pattern I saw but it's in the price range you have. I can't speak for rust because it doesn't exist here.

Well, I may have to try some seed to get some patterns. But I do prefer named plants at the moment, for some reason I just like having a named plant. But, I have some seedlings, and enjoy them so I may just have to try some seeds or maybe some seedlings from patterned parents.

Larry,
What about Web of Intrigue or Mystical Rainbow? Both of these are under $10. I am not sure about rust or if they qualify for your height requirement, but both seemed fairly tallish here for their age. Another that may be in your price range is Get Jiggy. It is quite a beauty and has a reliable pattern. Wild Dreams is beautiful, and it is hitting the $20 range right now on the Lily Auction. Not sure of the height on either of these without looking them up, but both withstood rust pretty well here last fall.

Web of Intrigue also reliably reblooms here, but does lose some of its patterning on later blooms when it gets hot. Mystical Rainbow has not rebloomed here that I'm aware of. Get Jiggy (2 yrs) and Wild Dreams (1yr) are new here, so I can't comment on reliable reblooming.

Here are some photos taken this past season:

Mystical Rainbow makes a beautiful clump


Get Jiggy


Wild Dreams

Sometimes it's petals reflex a bit more


And another that the price has dropped this year is Cosmic Kaleidoscope. This is one beautiful daylily! It is tall, rebloomed here, and made proliferations.




Looking through all these pictures makes me feel like I'm having DTs or something. Hurry up Spring!!

I have had my eye on Cosmic Kaleidoscope, I can find it around $25.00. I have paid that much for a few daylilies. 'Mystical Rainbow' I do like for its beautiful clumping, and 'Get Jiggy' is becoming pretty common. So I have bought some new plants for Spring and will put some of these maybe on my fall wish list.
I actually did buy 'Web' of Intrigue back at the end of March 2016 for $5.00, here fairly local.
