"Under the Wire" by Jim Murphy is a nice, tall purple one. "Challenger" is another older, rust peach similar to Autumn Minaret. All are standups.

I didn't think that bothered people, I do it all of the time. I thought the reason old threads existed was so that they could be commented on and updated, rather than adding new, similar threads to the board constantly. Over the years, on many other plant forums and bulletin boards, I've seen the opposite happen frequently, where a user will drop in, start a new thread in order to ask a question and the moderator will curtly invite them to search the archives before posting.

I think there are functional and philosophical differences between reference-based discussion forums such as this one, and a social media "click-collection" platform such as Facebook, where, (I assume) topics and comments simply flow by like a stream, and the ultimate goal is stimulation.

This board has incorporated some of the common social media platform features such as emoticons and "likes" but still functions primarily as a reference tool.

Back to tall daylilies...

'Notify Ground Crew' is still my favorite, but after looking back through this thread, I think I'm going to try Autumn Minaret. I bought 'Solar Attack' last fall, but it's still a small plant.

Bremer's 'Fire Fountain' has done so well here that I also bought its sib 'Welding The Titanic'. It's registered as M-Late, and it's still blooming. With 3 buds left, I'll probably get two more weeks out of it. That's pretty late in this climate, most of what little I have left in the garden is rebloom. I can't judge the height because it's still in a 1-gallon pot, (sub 30" scape) but the flower is large, opens wide even in cool weather, and has thick substance. It's a warmer, brighter color than 'Fire Fountain'.

Doesn't bother me a bit! I love going back to the old threads to see what I have forgotten Smiling

I just got 'Chew Mailpouch Tobacco' this year and can't wait to see it reach 6 feet!

I love reading the old threads, from years back. There's so much knowledge here!

Notify Ground Crew was new to me last year. Sent up 1 scape this year and gave me a handful of blooms. I had to move a tall windmaker because it had gotten as tall as the windmaker and since the windmaker turns with the wind it was starting to hit the scape.

I have Steeple Jackie and it has several scapes and will start blooming soon. Don't think it will get as tall as registered.

Autumn Minaret has been blooming for 2 weeks now and it keeps on going. It is slightly on an embankment of the garden it is in, so it looks taller than it is, but it is at least 62 inches since it still well above my head.

A few others that I have that are tall:
Bat Signal, 52"
Family Tree 52" was half that this year
Give me Eight 48"
Late Summer Fling 54"
Monacan Trail 49"
Reach for the Heavens 68"
Tall Drink of Water 53"

Hemerocallis 'Stargate Portal', 2018 photo, Tall Purple Daylily, (Shooter 2000), USDA Hardiness Zone 3, 5.5" medium red purple with blue lavender watermark outlined in magenta above light cream to chartreuse throat BC/B=25/3, Michigan Bloom Month 7a, In Garden Bed K4 F2.06.3 C3 for 364 DAYS (Ogde). Planted in 2017.

This one did not reach any great heights in one year. It's about 2 feet tall. Will have to wait to see what it does next year. I also planted one out near the road (somewhat shady) that did not bloom this year.

One Above You - 74
Sears Tower - 72
The Cow Jumped Over The Moon - 72
Jolly Red Giant - 68 has not come close to 68". A significant increase in height this year was noted compared to previous years.
On the want list is two Mahieu/Burris
Rognvaldurson and Rognvaldur.

Scatterbrain said:There is a tall one here in Britain called 'High Tor' which is 60 inches/5 foot tall. It is unregistered and gets its name from a limestone crag which towers over Matlock Bath in Derbyshire. It has yellow flowers.

No good for me as being only 5 foot tall myself the flowers would be above my eye level! Rolling on the floor laughing


I have High Tor here in Liverpool, it is my tallest variety. Last year it grew to about 66 inches, but it was much shorter this year because of the severe drought (as were other tall perennials). For me, a flower can only be called tall if it can look you in the eye.

Frank I originally wanted Heavenly United We Stand but end up getting Sky King due to availability at the time. I would eventually like to see both of them in my front garden.

Woodlands Meadowlark is a nice tall one at 50 - 54" It also has an obverse sepal, which adds more interest in the garden. It's a mid-late & is still going strong.

Frank I haven't been able to set any pods on this beauty yet. I used her pollen on Mary's Gold with success.

I don't think 'Panic In Detroit' will set pods, too many people saying they can't set pods. It's pollen is good, I have least a few crosses with it.
