Well, this is the first time I've started a thread. The photos are from two visits I made to Dan and Jane Trimmer's Watermill Gardens. The photos include seedlings and some named cultivars.

Ginny, my pocketbook was plenty safe. I purchase daylilies in the fall because when April hits, it gets so hot here that plants that were put in beds in Feb. just kneel over.

Here are some more photos.

Dan always amazes me with the cultivars he creates. He really does know what he is doing. Of all the Florida breeders creations---his are the most vigorous and hardy for me.

This is funny! I did much of this for his catalog and this forum. I also did it because I wanted to know what was out there that I might like. Looks like 3-84, 3-36 and Row E get my vote. I've gotta make dinner so after dinner I'll add some named cultivars.

I went over there today and basically provided photos for his catalog. All of his new intros. I'll post, but after I resize and send to photos to Dan.

Thanks for all of the thumbs and acorns. I absolutely appreciate it!

Before I escaped, Dan gave me two pots of SHAKESPEARS RED. Love it!

I received raised by wolves this spring and I am still waiting for it to bloom, but expect a crispate form purple with white teeth, not rounded yellow orange with ruffles. If that happens, it will be the end of my catalog purchases.

Absolutely gorgeous photos, Arlene.
Pumpkin Town just glows. Beautiful.
However, I would be in a pickle trying to choose one
or a few cause they are all fantastic. Can't decide
for the life of me which ones to ignore.

I have many Trimmer daylilies, and they make me
very happy each and every year.

OK. I've recovered from my first visit yesterday to cap a tooth. The temporary is in place and no pain. Good start.

Here are a number of the new intros (may duplicate some already posted, but this has been a nightmare to put together--problems with Seagate (storage), this laptop, the desktop. UGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!) The designations are the same I have provided to Dan and Jane.
