|Those are fantastic looking daylilies Fred! |
I've now received two orders, although I haven't taken any pictures -- maybe next time. The first order was from Bell's Daylily Garden, received last week: MARVELOUS IN HIS EYES and RACING THE MOON, with a bonus plant of their new BLUE POOLS. I had also ordered AMBER STAINED GLASS, but Tim Bell included a check and a note that they couldn't provide it but that I might check back in March after he's finished his inventory and possibly found one.
And I received my order from Luddy and Rachel Lambertson at Art Gallery Gardens yesterday, and I've soaked the plants overnight and will get them planted this afternoon. I ordered two of their new dip introductions: GREEN DARNER and TURQUOISE TANAGER; and they included a bonus plant of another 2017 dip intro, PINK-NECKED GREEN PIGEON.
All of these plants are really beautiful, at least large double fans, and even a 4-fan clump of GREEN DARNER from the Lambertsons -- and I'm thrilled with all of them!
I think my spring fever is already starting!

|I received my first order of the season from Breeze on the Lily Auction. All were nice double or triple fans.|

I had a chance to plant Can't Touch This before dark. The others are soaking until I get home today. The temps dropped last night into the mid 40's, but I think they should be okay.
Next week I have a few coming from Sonjamae (Wynn's Daylily Garden).

|Nice order, Pat, and I think STENCILED INFUSION is a terrific bonus plant! |

|Betty I planted Racing the Moon last Fall so really anxious to see it bloom this summer! |

|@Spunky1 Fred, beautiful specimens! |
I've been so anxious to get out in the gardens, but I'll just have to live life vicariously through you Southerners, for a spell! 😎

Betja said:Nice order, Pat, and I think STENCILED INFUSION is a terrific bonus plant!
Betty, I had to look it up in the data base. I never would have ordered it but I'm glad I got it as a bonus. Breeze always surprises me with a nice bonus. Last year I bid on River City Bobby B, but a women whose husband has passed wanted it more than I. Her husband's name was Bobby and she had to have it. Breeze sent it to me as a bonus and it was beautiful.
@Spunky, when you get fans that large in the spring, do they usually bloom the same year?

|Great blooms to look forward to everyone. Rachel Lambertson just emailed me and I will receive the dip collection next week. They always send more than I expect as does Karol Emmerich.|
Pat anytime we receive plants in the spring they bloom, may bloom a little late in the season this year being they are from the north, but next year they will bloom like they were always here. Ones from the south bloom normal same year as received. Also STENCIELED INFUSION is as good as the photo and sometimes better.
Betty you will also be getting an order from us next week.

|I received my order from the Trimmers at Water Mill Garden late last week and potted everything up in 2-gal. pots on Friday. I had ordered two of their new introductions, GREEN EMPEROR and PIRATE QUEEN, plus BITES LIKE A THOUSAND TEETH; and I received two fabulous gift plants that were at the top of my "wish list" for bonus plants -- CHANGING SHADOWS and QUEEN OF GREEN. |
In this picture, the three plants in the back row are GREEN EMPEROR in the center, and CHANGING SHADOWS and QUEEN OF GREEN are on either side (QUEEN OF GREEN is on your right -- four fans!). And in the front row the smallest plant is PIRATE QUEEN, and they let me know it is a dormant which explains its shorter leaves; and BITES LIKE A THOUSAND TEETH is the other plant on the right in the front row.
Edit: Oops, I forgot that I had to put GREEN EMPEROR and QUEEN OF GREEN in 3-gal. pots because they had such big root systems.
