This plant bloomed for the first time in my garden recently. I missed the opening of the first bloom, it was already closed by the time I found it. I missed the second bloom, I missed the third and the fourth bloom...just when it this thing ever opened? I can't figure out a good time to catch it actually in full bloom.

I went out and took photos again this morning, same result, blooms just look awful. Maybe it takes a long time to settle in. Have yet to catch a bloom that really looked like it was fully opened.

Larry-. I just got a single fan this year from Debra. Earlier this year it shocked me putting up good blooms. This was June 9 in shade. That was almost a month ago.

But if it would make you feel any better. Panchen Lama in 3 different locations have all continually looked like this

More than 20 blooms! Unable to figure it out. It gets next year only to improve.

May tomorrow be fantastic!

Maybe we both have a defective plants! Your 'Dixie Land Band' looks like what I was expecting. I have a seeding that looks similar to your 'Panchen Lama'.

Thank You! for the acorn! I think they are both due to weather conditions of where they are. On cool rainy mornings I had a little more open presence on PL but never one normal bloom. That being said how does my cool rainy morning relate to weather in the rest of the country?

Is this the first year for Dixie Land Band? Is it Rebloom? For you this seems really late for DLB's original blooms. I have White Temptation. This is not it's bloom time, but it decided it was. Later by 4 to 6 weeks by how the other daylilies bloomed this year. Mid to end of June more than 8 inches of rain. It has rained 3 times since July 1. All good heavy soaking types of rain, yesterday totaled more than 3 inches. These three rain storms are by far more than we get in July and August total.
This is how WT's 3 blooms have looked.

I know it has had normal blooms before. If you look at the ends of the blooms you can tell it will not open properly. Maybe Dixie Land Band is opening at the wrong time like my White Temptation causing blooms not to open properly. I wish they could talk and tell me what's wrong! Hilarious! On second thought my garden would become a noisy complaint ridden area.

Many blessings for a wonderful month!

Yes, this is the first year for 'Dixie Land Band' in my garden and these are the first blooms on it.
I took a new photo this morning the results I think are a tiny bit better, but not much.

I will try to catch it later again today and see what it looks like.

It's performing unusually well here, after a climate change winter. Bright clear blooms and bud count in the teens.

It has bloomed great for me, even in the 100 degree heat this week in Zone 5b. I crossed it with Bob Faulkner's Sunburnned Zebra and Don Lovell's Timber Creek Ace and it seems to pass that white ribbing on. See my one photo attached. The rib color on the Timbercreek Ace cross isn't as pronounce but I'm waiting to see what it looks like next year. These are first year blooming seedlings.

I had a daylily, red also, the first year I had it the blooms were like yours. It didn't have many buds, but I kept thinking "how did I miss that blooming yesterday". The next year it was fine, I guess it just took its time settling in.
