Bell's has revamped their website, and I believe this is now the address for their 2017 introductions:

Beautiful flowers, just curious how close do the pictures match the actual flowers?

I have a several past intorductions they are beautiful actually stunning to my eye and will always be in my garden. I am careful since I live in the north and their daylilies are evergreen to wait until I hear that the ones I am interested in do well in my location.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

Thanks, would like to get a few, but with those prices, I would have to be reasonably assured that they would do well in our area.

I've not been able to grow them here in Central FL because they have too much dormancy. Every one I tried has failed!

So far I have success with the few that I have.
Edited to add that I posted the wrong flowers. Buddy's plants are from Mr Hall not Mr Bell.

I got these intros from Bell's last year, and I wish I had taken more of each one because these were the first blooms and certainly not the best. They also have a great general listing of daylilies, and they send beautiful large plants.

HEAVEN TO ME - Quite pastel in our Bakersfield heat


FRILLY FRAZZLED - It got much toothier with later blooms

Yeah, I think they must be having problems. I've tried both the old address and the new one, and now they both say:

"Well this is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it?" -- Although if you can get that page there are links at the top that can take you to the 2017 intros. I'm sorry about that.
