I have 99 named cultivars...but I have two clumps of some of them. Does that put me over the 100 mark? I am going to say yes and post my favorites. I haven't had any of mine long enough to judge based on long-term performance...so I'm still a sucker for a pretty face. But I will stick with ones that have actually bloomed in my garden, which leaves a lot out. That being said, my two favorites are...

I now have 277 named cultivars and a couple dozen more seedlings and NOIDS.

Three of my favorites are:

Aztec Beauty. A flat-faced form with a blend of soft orange and yellow and a blush of pink at times. I so look forward to seeing it each year.


Fooled Me. It always seems to open so well and as a clump is a beauty in the garden.


Parfait. It was registered in 1951, but it ranks over many of the newer cultivars in my garden. It's height and open form give a lot of movement to the clump.

I love seeing historic and other older daylilies being posted as favorites! It's nice to know that oldies are still loved and appreciated!

The oldies but Goodies stood the test of time for a reason. Frans Hals is another that's right up there.
Yes, Ginny we all will have our note pad next to the PC - tablet - phone to jot down others that we would like to add to our gardens.

I've had Frans Hals for years. I've split it and moved it and it has always done well for me.

Counting named, seedlings and noids I am over 200. So I will pick 3. My first is Moonlit Masquerade. I purposely picked a landscape shot with one bloom open so you could get an idea of its garden presence. If you notice it with one bloom, you for sure can not ignore it when most days it has at least four open blooms. Nice long bloom season usually with rebloom Have had at least 5 years.

The second is a large red seedling I have had for over 5 years. Nice large red blooms, good clump presence, and long bloom season.
It is in an neglected area.

And my third choice is Bubblegum Pie. Second year here but the size and amount of blooms is fantastic. It is container grown.
