Hi, I'm new to this forum and really enjoying it. I love dayliies and have a motley collection of mostly unknown named varieties, some definitely old varieties or maybe even species. I have one unknown which is the longest blooming one I have grown so far. Wondering what ones others have?
I call this one "Cinnamon" because it looks like it has a dusting of cinnamon on the petals. Color is a muted/pale golden, petals pointed, trumpet shaped, slightly darker throat. The flower stalks can be up to 5 feet tall and it forms pups on the stem which may also bloom, grow roots and can be planted. Leaves are long, draping, strongly folded and can be at least 2 1/2 feet tall. Forms a large clump but does not spread by rhizomes. Bloom period is on and off from May to October here in the Los Angeles area, zone 9b/10a. I will include a photo as soon as I catch one in bloom and figure how to upload!

I would love to add more long-blooming ones to my collection if anyone wants to trade.

What about you?

Mimulus59, Welcome!
Looking forward to the photos of your plants. The "pup" you describe are called proliferations on daylilies. Here in my zone we get a lot of rebloom from daylilies, so fortunately I end up with some that bloom for fairly long periods of time.
A few of my favorites are:

Welcome! Mimulus59 : ) last year Chosen Love bloomed for five weeks, but I didn't record much for stats so I don't know if that was original bloom only or with rebloom. I don't know if I did rebloom last year...

Your "Cinnamon" sounds lovely : ) Can't wait to see pictures...
